itt Romney said Tuesday that he would not pursue any abortion-related legislation if he's elected president. "There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," he told the The Des Moines Register. Romney did say, however, that he'd reinstate a policy banning non-governmental organizations from using federal money to pay for abortions. Romney's campaign team immediately sought to downplay the remarks. "Gov. Romney would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life," said spokeswoman Andrea Saul.
