Romney: no plans for legislative action against abortion

Catholic World News - October 10, 2012

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told an Iowa newspaper that he has no plans to promote legislation to restrict abortion if he is elected in November.

“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,” Mr. Romney told the Des Moines Register. The paper noted nonetheless that the Republican challenger would reinstate the "Mexico City policy" that bars US taxpayer funding for efforts to promote abortion in other countries.

A spokesman for the Romney campaign insisted that despite the candidate's statement to the Register he remains "proudly pro-life and would eb a pro-life president."

    Romney also said he would defund Planned Parenthood and appoint Supreme Court Justices like Scalia and Roberts ( before the "health care mandate is a tax" debacle). I think faithful Pro - Life Catholics can feel very safe in voting for Mitt. The real problem is the multitudes of unfaithful "Catholics" who are allowed to remain in the Church, and publically, with no fear of reprisal, destroy her credibility.
