Mitt Romney's Abortion Stance: 'I Never Really Called Myself Pro-Choice'

Posted: Updated:

Former -- and perhaps future -- Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney talked with radio host Don Imus Wednesday morning about his views on abortion rights.

"Now, when you changed your mind abortion and went from pro choice, I guess, to pro-life, what -- walk me through the, what caused that," Imus asked.

"Well, you know, I never really called myself pro-choice, but I did say when I was running for governor that I would keep the law as it was," Romney responded.

But a comprehensive list of his statements on the matter, including one from a 2007 debate in Iowa, appears not to back up his comment. During the Iowa debate he clearly explains "Look, I was pro-choice. I am pro-life."
