Mitt Romney and Abortion
By Uri Brito
On his website, Romney holds to an identical position to Dr. Ron Paul:
Mitt believes that life begins at conception and wishes that the laws of our nation reflected that view. But while the nation remains so divided, he believes that the right next step is for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade – a case of blatant judicial activism that took a decision that should be left to the people and placed it in the hands of unelected judges. With Roe overturned, states will be empowered through the democratic process to determine their own abortion laws and not have them dictated by judicial mandate.
Dr. Paul has stated that overturning Roe v. Wade is the right strategy for the country, and that would mean that individual states could act accordingly and reject Roe v. Wade as law.
Though Ron Paul has been consistent on this issue, Romney recently backed away from his own website description of his position. Recently he told the Des Moines Register that “There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda.”
So which is it Governor Romney? Is overturning Roe not part of your agenda? If not, there are a lot of Republicans out there who think it is.
