Romney Surrogate Deceives Voters on Abortion Position
On the same day two Romney supporters were campaigning in Ohio, voters heard two entirely different messages.
Speaking to a coalition of Jewish voters, former Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman told voters Mitt won’t outlaw abortion: “President Bush was president eight years, Roe v. Wade wasn’t reversed. He had two Supreme Court picks, Roe v. Wade wasn’t reversed. It’s not going to be reversed.”
Meanwhile, Christian activist Ralph Reed spoke about the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s efforts to pass out more than a million voter guides that highlight Romney’s position on abortion, among other issues.
Talk about a mixed message.
Once again, the Romney campaign is attempting to deceive voters about his commitment to end safe and legal abortion. On many occasions, Romney has reiterated his position and promise to overturn Roe v. Wade and end safe and legal abortion. When asked if the repeal of Roe would be a good day for America, Romney responded, “absolutely.” He’s called it “bad law and bad medicine” and “one of the darkest moments in Supreme Court history.” It’s no surprise that Romney’s trying so hard to run from his record, because the more women learn about his out-of-touch positions on women’s health, the less likely they are to support him.
