Obama campaign continues to distort Gov. Romney’s position on abortion; NRLC explains how and why
National Right to Life News – Dave Andrusko – 10/19/2012
This is not the first time Obama’s re-election team has distorted Romney’s position, nor will it be the last.
The Obama campaign is out with another ad making the false claim that Mitt Romney ‘backed a bill that outlaws all abortion, even in cases of rape and incest.’ Romney’s consistent position through this campaign, and the last, and as far back as 2005, is that he opposes abortion except in cases when the life of the mother is in danger, and in cases of rape and incest. …The Obama campaign is a repeat offender with this distortion of Romney’s position on abortion.”
Mitt Romney’s position on abortion has been consistent throughout both his 2008 and his 2012 campaign and he has not changed that position. He believes Roe vs. Wade should be overturned and he believes abortion should only be allowed in cases to save the life of the mother and in cases of rape and incest. He is running a television ad to that effect in part to counter the media’s earlier attempt, beginning with the Republican convention, to distort his position and imply that he would seek to ban abortion in cases of rape or incest or perhaps in all cases, including life of mother cases.
Obama’s own position and record which includes:
1) voting against a bill in
2) co-sponsoring a bill that would have made partial birth abortion legal again, and
3) opposing a bill to ban sex-selection abortion–not to mention the abortion promoting elements of Obamacare.
