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.
