Romney on Abortion

A lot of attention has been given in the last few days to Mitt Romney's 'evolving' views on abortion. In particular, check out the treatment of the issue at Stop the ACLU and Instapundit.

I am a pro-life social conservative. And I am inclined to give the Governor a mulligan. For heaven sake - he was running in Massachusetts. Undoubtedly if he were running in Utah, he would have described his views differently. That's what politicians do.

In deciding who to back in 2008, an important question will be to ask who will be the best leader in the effort to reduce abortions in the US. In deciding who that is, I'm willing to listen to each of the candidates explain his views and history, rather than regard that history as the final word.

Back to the top.
