Your Opinion: Romney's pro-life positions

October 31st, 2012 by Sylvester Kesel, St. Elizabeth in News

Dear Editor:

Romney on life.

Believes abortions should be limited to only cases of rape, incest or to save the mother's life.

Supports overturning Roe v. wade and promises to appoint Supreme Court Justices who are committed to fair interpretation of the Construction.

Supports the Hyde Amendment, which bars using federal tax revenue to pay for abortions.

Promise to support efforts to eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood.

Promises to support the Mexico City Policy, which will bar NGOs that receive federal funding from promoting or performing abortions as a method of family planning in other countries.

Promises to advocate for and support legislation that will make it illegal to destroy unborn children who are developmentally capable of feeling pain.

As governor of Massachusetts, he vetoed a bill that would have allowed underage girls to obtain contraceptive pills without their parental consent.

He opposed legislation that would allow creation of human embryos for the purpose of stem cell research, which destroys human life.
