Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in a Tuesday interview with an Iowa newspaper that he has no abortion-related legislation on his platform - although as president, he would reinstate through administrative means a policy banning nongovernmental organizations from using federal funds to provide abortions.
"There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," Romney said in an interview with The Des Moines Register.
That of course is not what Mitt's said in the past. He's trying to have it both ways...even on the same day.
After the remarks were published online Tuesday, Romney’s campaign spokeswoman reiterated that he is opposed to abortion.
"Mitt Romney is proudly pro-life, and he will be a pro-life president," Andrea Saul said in a statement.
Earlier Tuesday, the conservative site National Review Online published a different statement from Saul: “Governor Romney would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life.”
Obama's campaign said Romney's "statement contradicts his pledge to appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade," the 1972 U.S. Supreme Court decision affirming a woman's right to have an abortion.
Obama campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith said in a statement, that "women simply can't trust (Romney)."
So which is it, Mitt? Whatever position gets you the most votes that week? This guy has all the convictions of a sponge. But he won the debate, right? That's all that matters to voters, right?
