New Obama ad says Romney would ban abortion
NEW YORK (AP) -- President Barack Obama's newest campaign ad shows challenger Mitt Romney saying he'd "be delighted" to sign a bill banning abortion.
But the 30-second spot takes Romney out of context. Romney did say during a debate in 2007 that he'd sign such a bill. But what he said afterward -- that a federal abortion ban is "not where America is today" -- was left out of the ad.
