Obama Camp On Romney’s New Abortion Talk: ‘Women Simply Can’t Trust Him’

President Obama’s reelection campaign isn’t buying Mitt Romney’s contention that new restrictions on abortion aren’t part of his legislative agenda.

“It’s troubling that Mitt Romney is so willing to play politics with such important issues. But we know the truth about where he stands on a woman’s right to choose – he’s said he’d be delighted to sign a bill banning all abortions, and called Roe v. Wade ‘one of the darkest moments in Supreme Court history’ while pledging to appoint Supreme Court justices who will overturn it,” said Lis Smith, a campaign spokesperson for Obama. “Women simply can’t trust him.”

Romney told the Des Moines Register Tuesday that he didn’t plan to put forward new abortion laws.

“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,” he told the paper.
