When he was running for the Senate against Ted Kennedy in 1994, Mitt Romney called on his personal experience to prove his pro-choice credentials. During a debate, Romney said: "I had a dear, close family relative that was very close to me who passed away from an illegal abortion. It is since that time that my mother and my family have been committed to the belief that we can believe as we want, but we will not force our beliefs on others on that matter. And you will not see me wavering on that."
