Mitt Romney's Sister Says He Won't Ban Abortion

Either she a liar or "pro-lifers" have absolutely no reason to vote for Mitt Romney. Which is it?

Mitt Romney’s eldest sister, who has backed prominent Democrats for office and is in Tampa showing support for her brother, had some reassuring words Wednesday for women concerned about the Republican Party’s hard line on 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.”

Yeah, Democrats think so too, Jane, which is why our position is that it should be left to the woman and her doctor. Republicans have been arguing the opposite for 40 years and exploiting the issue at the polls every 2. Jane Romney put it, “Mitt’s much more in the middle” when it comes to abortion.

You're either with them or against them, Mitt.

Which is it?
