Formerly Pro-Choice Romney Attacks Roe V. Wade On 39th Anniversary
It’s the 39th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, and an opportune time for Mitt Romney to attack the law he once vowed to uphold.
“Today marks the 39th anniversary of one of the darkest moments in Supreme Court history, when the court in Roe v. Wade claimed authority over the fundamental question regarding the rights of the unborn. The result is millions of lives since that day have been tragically silenced. Since that day, the pro-life movement has been working tirelessly in an effort to change hearts and minds and protect the weakest and most vulnerable among us. Today, we recommit ourselves to reversing that decision, for in the quiet of conscience, people of both political parties know that more than a million abortions a year cannot be squared with the good heart of America.”
When Romney was running for governor of Massachusetts in 2002, he professed support for both Roe v. Wade and for Medicaid funded abortions. Pictured is the questionnaire he signed for Planned Parenthood.Click here for reuse options!
