Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made his pro-life views clear today in response to a question from a reporter on the campaign trail in Ohio.
Romney said he would govern as a pro-life president, de-fund the nation’s largest abortion company, and reinstate a policy preventing taxpayer funding of international abortion promotion efforts on the part of Planned Parenthood.
“I think I’ve said time and again that I’m a pro-life candidate and I’ll be a pro-life president. The actions I’ll take immediately is to remove funding for Planned Parenthood. It will not be part of my budget. And also I’ve indicated that I will reverse the Mexico City position of the president. I will reinstate the Mexico City policy which keeps us from using foreign aid for abortions overseas,” he said, according to Politico.
Earlier in the day, a spokeswoman for Governor Mitt Romney said the presidential candidate will be a pro-life president, a stark contrast the pro-abortion record President Barack Obama has built up during his time in the White House.
Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul has emailed out a statement about Romney to multiple media outlets after the liberal Des Moines Register newspaper ran a quote from Romney attempting to paint him as less than pro-life.
