When they did so, they heard “a recording of Mitt Romney’s comments from 1994, where his convictions on the pro-life, the abortion, debate have really been in question.”
“I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years, that we should sustain and support it. I sustain and support that law, and the right of a woman to make that choice.”
In response, Kennedy asserted, to applause, “I am pro-choice; my opponent is multiple-choice.”
Romney’s communications director, Gail Gitcho, told MSNBC that Romney “has made it clear that that is the one substantial issue that he has changed his position on. He is pro-life. He will govern as president as a pro-life president.”
Of the text-message attacks, Gitcho said, "you’re going to see a lot of these negative attacks” in the final week before the Jan. 3 caucuses.
