Go read Romney’s own site.

Well, upon your own advice, EternalVigilance, I just did. And here's what I found:

As president, Mitt will nominate judges in the mold of Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito. . . . Mitt Romney is pro-life. . . . Mitt believes that life begins at conception and wishes that the laws of our nation reflected that view. . . . he believes that the right next step is for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. . . . Mitt supports the Hyde Amendment, which broadly bars the use of federal funds for abortions. . . . he will end federal funding for abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood. . . .

That's what Romney is running on, and as long as he holds to that and does not change between now and November, that's good enough for me.

Nice ellipses. You've picked out the lying wrapper that Romney's pro-choice democrat position hides under.

So let's unwrap his statements a bit:

Mitt believes that life begins at conception and wishes that the laws of our nation reflected that view.

If life begins at conception, which it does, the supreme law of the land does reflect that view, explicitly and imperatively, and without exception.

"No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law."

"No State shall deprive any person of life without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

Even Blackmun admitted as much in Roe, before he and his colleagues dehumanized the child.

"The appellee and certain amici argue that the fetus is a 'person' within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment...If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant's case, of course, collapses, for the fetus' right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment." -- Justice Harry A. Blackmun, Roe vs. Wade, 1973

What Romney is referring to as "law" isn't "law" at all. It is court opinions. You see, he is a judicial supremacist. Pro-choice for judges. Denies the sacred duty of the officers of the other branches to support and defend and uphold their own oaths.

But while the nation remains so divided, he believes that the right next step is for the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade –

Judicial supremacist and de facto support for the status quo, which is abortion on demand.

a case of blatant judicial activism that took a decision that should be left to the people and placed it in the hands of unelected judges.

Pro-choice democrat denial that the right to life is God-given and therefore unalienable...ie beyond legitimate human choice.

With Roe overturned, states will be empowered through the democratic process to determine their own abortion laws and not have them dictated by judicial mandate."

Pro-choice for states. Pro-choice democrat.
