Ex-Gov. Mitt Romney is touring Colorado today, and he's trying desperately to avoid answering questions on a critically important issue in our state.
Last fall, just before the state of Mississippi rejected a radical abortion ban initiative, Romney was asked on FOX News whether he would support a "constitutional amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception." This is the language used in so-called "personhood" abortion bans around the nation, including in Colorado.
FOX NEWS: Would you have supported the constitutional amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception?
After the defeat of Mississippi's so-called "personhood initiative," Romney's campaign has tried desperately to avoid having their candidate answer more questions about his support for banning abortion. Romney has repeatedly flip-flopped on the issue of abortion during his political career, but recently he has embraced many far-right positions in an attempt to appease radical "Tea Party" conservatives.
This year, the "personhood initiative," which would outlaw abortion even in cases of rape and incest, and could ban common forms of birth control, will be on the ballot once again in Colorado. Women everywhere in our state deserve to know where Romney stands.
Sign our petition: tell Mitt Romney to stop playing games, and tell the truth about his support for radical statewide abortion bans once and for all.
Don't let Romney leave Colorado without a straight answer!
