Romney Pledges to End Planned Parenthood Funding

Ad Feedback

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is clarifying his stance on abortion after announcing this week that he has no plans to push for new legislation on the issue.

He explained that he would still take action as president to cut funding of America's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

"I think I've said time and again. I'm a pro-life candidate. I'll be a pro-life president," Romney said at a campaign stop in Ohio.

He explained that he does intend to take pro-life action, even if not pushing directly for legislation that targets abortion.

"The actions I'll take immediately are to remove funding for Planned Parenthood. It will not be part of my budget. And also I've indicated I'll reverse the Mexico City position of the president. I will reinstate the Mexico City policy," he said.

The Mexico City policy says that no U.S. tax dollars can be used to pay for abortions in other countries.

Meanwhile, President Obama is accusing Romney of trying "to cloud" the issue by "hiding" a pro-life agenda. He's telling women voters that Romney will try to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
