Mitt Romney Said In 2007 He Would Be "Delighted" To Sign A Bill Banning All Abortions Nationally

The Romney campaign released a statement criticizing Missouri Republican Senate nominee Todd Akin: "Gov. Romney and Congressman Ryan disagree with Mr. Akin's statement, and a Romney-Ryan administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape."But a 2007 statement by Romney at a debate might muddy Romney's statement, in which Romney said he would be "delighted" to sign a bill banning all abortions, saying it would be "terrific" in we reached consensus in the country. Update Mitt Romney's 2007 "on the issues" page notes he supports exceptions in cases of rape and incest, but also notes that abortion should be a state issue. Update The Obama campaign says in a statement: "While Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are working overtime to distance themselves from Rep. Todd Akin’s comments on rape, they are contradicting their own records. Mr. Romney supports the Human Life Amendment, which would ban abortion in all instances, even in the case of rape and incest. In fact, that amendment is a central part of the Republican Party’s platform that is being voted on tomorrow."
