Romney Changes Abortion Stance Again

Mitt Romney told the Des Moines Register that he has no plans to push for legislation limiting abortion, an abrupt switch for a candidate who has said he would appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Said Romney: "There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda."

Spokeswoman Andrea Saul later walked back the comment telling the National Review that Romney "would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life."

Mark Halperin: "If the Obama campaign has cracked the code on how to make Mitt Romney pay a political price for his late rush to the center on tone and emphasis, we haven't seen them execute their full plan yet. That might be the central tactical question in the presidential contest right now."
