Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said he believes Alabama's newly adopted abortion law is too extreme and people on both sides of the controversial issue are taking exceptionally radical positions.

'I am pro-life but there ought to be exceptions for rape and incest,' he said during an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN's 'State of the Union' Sunday morning.

'You are seeing laws on both sides of this argument that are in the extreme,' he said. 'People have gone to the wings, if you will, and I don't think that is productive. I think something much more toward the center makes more sense.'

Alabama passed a law that bans abortions in all cases unless the life of the mother is in jeopardy. It does not make exceptions for rape or incest.

Comment by Rob Kall:

how good of Mitt, kind of like critiquing how deep a stab in the heart is nice or not. The legislation is disgusting. Men should not have the right to dictate how women deal with their own bodies.

Not to defend Romney at all, but I do think this is more what he was talking about:


"It does not make exceptions for rape or incest."


Romney is often the voice of the LDS-Mormon church, so hopefully, their position will become more clear.


That legislation is disgusting, no doubt, but with Missouri and probably others soon, it will become a formidable SCOTUS challenge to Roe vs. Wade, what those guys have wanted to get rid of for many decades, eh?
