Romney: ‘It’s Important For Me To Remind People That I’m Pro-Life’

Mitt Romney is stressing his opposition to abortion while campaigning in South Carolina and has added several lines touting “life” to his standard campaign stump speeches. During a brief press conference this morning, the former Massachusetts governor — who supported a woman’s right to choose until 2005 — addressed Newt Gingrich’s ongoing attacks on his record. “I understand that there are some attack ads coming my way that question that and obviously it’s important for me to remind people that I’m pro-life,” Romney said referring to a new ad which accuses him of providing taxpayer funded abortions as part of Massachusetts’ 2006 health care reform law. Incidentally, a pro-Romney PAC is also running ads falsely accusing Gingrich of supporting abortion. Watch Romney’s comments:
