Romney To CBS: ‘I’m In Favor Of Abortion Being Legal In The Case Of Rape And Incest’

Speaking to CBS News Monday evening, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney expressed his support for abortion only “in the case of rape and incest.”

“My position has been clear throughout this campaign,” the former Massachusetts Governor told Scott Pelley. “I’m in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest and the health and life of the mother.”

“This is a matter in the courts,” he continued. “It’s been settled for some time in the courts. I come down on the side of life.”
