In what can only be seen as a play for the women’s vote, Mitt Romney is now promising no legislation on abortion. 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.” But as the AP notes, “As recently as a presidential debate in January, Romney said the Supreme Court should overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark ruling that legalized abortion across the nation.” And that came after he campaigned for governor of Massachusetts promising to preserve and protect a woman’s right to choose. If your head is spinning, you’re not alone.
