Where they Stand: Romney on Abortion.
- Opposes abortion rights, but has previously supported them.
- Says that state law should guide abortion rights, and Roe v. Wade should be reversed by a future Supreme Court. BUT, agrees that Roe v. Wade is the law of the land until that happens and should not be challenged by legislation.
- Would not sign a pledge to advance only anti-abortion appointees for relevant administration jobs, cut off federal dollars for clinics that perform or finance abortions, and support a ban on abortions after the fetus reaches a certain stage in development.
