Ann Romney Explains Reversal On Abortion

NEW YORK, (UPI) –  Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, said Thursday on ABC’s “The View” stem cell research change her husband’s mind on abortion.

“He could not have, on his conscience, creating human life for experimentation,” Ann Romney said. “That’s when he came out saying he was pro life. I think we all have to understand this is an issue that is so tender and there are people on both sides of the issue, with very good conscience, coming with a different opinion.”

Mitt Romney said he fully supported abortion rights when he ran for governor of Massachusetts in 2002.

Romney had been scheduled to appear on the talk show with his wife, but his campaign said this week the show “was no longer going to work in the campaign schedule.” In remarks made at a May fundraiser he had called the show “high risk” because the hosts, including Whoopi Goldberg, are “sharp-tongued” and “not conservative.” Ann Romney jokingly said her husband actually said “sharp and young.”

Romney and President Barack Obama face off in their third and final debate Monday in Boca Raton, Fla.

    A woman who has never worked a day in her life can’t make her husband seem “in touch” with the American people. Is there any doubt a Romney administration would favor the rich and increase the income gap in our country? Mitt is a pariah in Mormon Clothing and will stop at nothing to expand an empire of greed for the rich in this country by expanding tax cuts for the 1% of the wealthiest Americans. He’s out to gut the Middle Class for every red cent he can get. Will his sacred Mormon underwear grant him the protection and money to buy this election? See for yourself as Mitt dons his tighty-whities sent down from the Good Lord Himself at

      Ok, let’s talk.We do not wear ”magic underwear’. They are called Temple Garments and are a reminder of covenants we have made with God in the Temple.The Garments are also a reminder of Christ sacrifice for our personal salvation.Please do not mock what you have no knowlege of.To mock that which is Holy is blasphemy of the worst kind.If you have any questions or concerns ask a member of our church for answers instead of what you read from sources that have no first hand experiance,or that may be hostile to our faith.

      President Obama has drawn a line in the sand in regards to marriage and family by supporting the gross perversion of so called ”gay marriage”Do you really believe that our nation will escape the judgement of God by following such foolishness?I cannot imagine Presidents Washington or Lincoln endorseing such TRASH! It is past time for those of us who refuse to bow the knee to this social engineering to say a resouding NO!in the ears of those who seek to lead us, and silence on this issue is no longer an option.As far as Ann Romney never having to work,I would say that raising five sons who have served honorable missions and leaving home for two years in distant lands required great sacrifice and courage.She has done the most noble work of all,raising boys to manhood that will honor God and country.
