Mitt Romney’s sister assured “Women for Mitt” that if her brother is elected President, he won’t pursue the anti-abortion policies he espouses on the campaign trail.
In an interview with National Journal, sister Jane Romney said that Mitt won’t “be touching” the issue of abortion:
Mitt Romney would never make abortions illegal as president, Jane Romney said when National Journal asked her about the subject after a “Women for Mitt” event. “He’s not going to be touching any of that,” she said. “It’s not his focus.”
Democratic warnings that abortion rights are under threat are an ungrounded fear tactic, Jane Romney said. “That’s what women are afraid of, but that’s conjured,” she said. “Personally, I don’t think abortion should be used as a football in the political arena.” [...]
[The Republican platform] does not specify any exceptions.
But as Jane Romney put it, “Mitt’s much more in the middle” when it comes to abortion.
