In another flip-flop, Romney, who now says he’s solidly pro-life, donated money to planned parenthood.
From ABC News:
ABC News’ Rick Klein Reports: Mitt Romney attended a fund-raising reception for Planned Parenthood in 1994 in conjunction with a $150 donation his wife made to the organization — notwithstanding Romney’s contention that he had “no recollection” of the circumstances under which his wife gave money to the abortion-rights group.
So, if you vote for Romney, do you get pro-choice Romney, or pro-life Romney? His flip-flops make John Kerry look like the Rock of Gibraltar.
From Fox News
Romney acknowledged changing his views in 2004 from supporting abortion rights to opposing abortion. He said he did not entirely betray abortion-rights voters, either, because he did not seek to change Massachusetts abortion laws.
It’s one thing to modify your positions as you grow and learn, but from pro-choice to pro-life? It just happens to coincide with his political aspirations. In his home state, he needed to be pro-choice to get elected, but for national Republican politics, he needs to be pro-life.
But which is the real Romney? Neither side of the abortion debate can be happy with Romney’s multiple stands on the issue as you can’t be sure of what he’ll do if elected – he could end up anywhere on the abortion question.
