Team Obama Caught Lying About Romney's Views On AbortionTopics: Political News and commentaries
BuzzFeed puts it a bit more mildly, but any way you cut it ... a lie is a lie:
As the presidential campaign swirls around a war for the allegiance of American women, the Obama campaign is relying on an explosive -- and highly questionable -- charge to draw pro-choice women into the President's camp: That Mitt Romney would "outlaw abortion" if elected.As BussFeed's own lead notes -- it's a real stretch, at best, and is based on a single remark in 2007, and accompanied by the false claim that Romney wants to shut down Planned Parenthood. The fact is, Romney's current position advocates overturning Roe v. Wade and allowing states to make their own abortion laws. He has also supported ending federal funding for Planned Parenthood ... none of which is anything near the Obama campaign's characterization.
