Healthy Choice

Mitt Romney told CBS News:

I’m in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother. But recognize, this is the decision that will be made by the Supreme Court. The Democrats try and make this a political issue every four years, but this is a matter in the courts. It’s been settled for some time in the courts.

This position — including an exception for the health of the mother — is in direct contradiction of the stated GOP platform, as well as Mitt Romney himself, according to an e-mail from his spokesperson:

“Gov. Romney’s position is clear: he opposes abortion except for cases of rape, incest and where the life of the mother is threatened.”

Note the deletion of the health exception.

And so it goes. Mr. Romney has more positions on this than the Kama Sutra.
