I cannot foresee Romney allowing the “personhood” law, as described above, going forward. Below is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints published opinionon abortion. Please, do not go off on the religion tangent. This is for information purposes only.
“The Church opposes abortion and counsels its members not to submit to or perform an abortion except in the rare cases where, in the opinion of competent medical counsel, the life or good health of the mother is seriously endangered or where the pregnancy was caused by rape and produces serious emotional trauma in the mother. Even then it should be done only after counseling with the local presiding priesthood authority and after receiving divine confirmation through prayer.”
In recent years, the language has been amended to include incest as being equal to rape. I know this will not satisfy pro-choicers but it is far better than the pro-Akins crowd. And most conservatives that I know are not fans of blabbermouth Limbough.
