Romney's twisted road on abortion - The Last Word

Will Saletan of wrote an exhaustive piece on the path Mitt Romney took while determining his stand on Abortion. Saletan chronicles how it began in 1963 with the death of a woman who was close to the Romney family, from an illegal abortion which he mentioned in a debate with Senator Ted Kennedy. Saletan also found that Romney commissioned a poll in 1986 before running for election which found that a pro-life candidate could not win a statewide election in Massachusetts. The poll came before Romney took a position, though Saletan does not say Romney took the position based solely on the poll.
