Despite his previous statements that he didn't "believe that it's appropriate to legislate one's personal view for the entire country," Romney changed his mind and would now work to limit abortion. He now states: "I believe people understand that I'm firmly pro-life. I will support justices who believe in following the Constitution and not legislating from the bench. And I believe in the sanctity of life from the very beginning until the very end." He thinks "abortion should be limited to only instances of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother," allowing for some exceptions in extreme cases, something other Republicans like Rick Santorum do not.
