Last week, I said that Mitt Romney supported the South Carolina ultrasound-before-abortion bill. But I was wrong. He has said that it is a state issue and ducked, invoking the same federalism argument that Rudy Giuliani is using. From AP:
"I would like to see each state be able to make its own law with regard to abortion," Romney said after a speech to about 50 small business leaders. "I think the Roe v. Wade one-size-fits-all approach is wrong."
This feels like Romney settling on a position that is anti-Roe, but not particularly pro-life. Sam Brownback, Mike Huckabee, and John McCain have all declared their support for the bill.
Is this going to be salable to pro-life activists and evangelicals?
