“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,” the GOP presidential candidate told The Des Moines Register’s editorial board during a meeting today before his campaign rally at a Van Meter farm.But then the President doesn't really set the legislative agenda making such attempted reassurances meaningless.
The obvious follow-up questions involve vetos, a power the President does have.
If the House passes a bill to redefine rape as they did in 2011 when Romney's Vice President, Paul Ryan, joined Todd Akin to pass a bill to distinguish Todd Akin's "forcible" or "legitimate" from all those other "so called rapes" of women who really wanted it and only cried rape later, will President Mitt Romney veto that bill?
Will Mitt Romney veto an so called Human Life bills or any bills with broad sweeping language intended to criminalize abortion while pretending to do something else?
Who will be asking Romney these questions?
