| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

The Washington Post is reporting today on a meeting Mitt Romney had with NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts in 2002.

Back then, when Romney was trying to get elected governor in a pro-choice state, he promised to be a "good voice in the [Republican] party" for women's freedom and privacy .

So, what happened after Gov. Romney took office?

  • He vetoed a bill giving rape survivors information about and timely access to emergency contraception. (Fortunately, the Massachusetts state legislature voted to override Gov. Romney's veto.)
  • He said the repeal of Roe v. Wade would "absolutely" be a good day for America.
  • He even voiced his support for a state constitutional amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception.

Find out more about Gov. Romney's record on choice, and judge for yourself whether he'd be a "good voice" for pro-choice Americans.
