Romney Shrugs Off Photo Showing Him At Planned Parenthood Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

Mitt Romney dismissed a picture on the Internet on Tuesday that apparently showed him attending a fundraising reception for Planned Parenthood in 1994 during his Senate campaign.

"I attend a lot of events when I run for office. I don't recall the specific event," the former Massachusetts governor said as he campaigned for the Republican presidential nomination. "I think I've made it very clear. I was pro-choice, or effectively pro-choice, when I ran in 1994. As governor I'm pro-life and I have a record of being pro-life and I'm firmly pro-life today."
