    This probably what Mitt Romney believes.

    In 1973, the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding abortion, which is still applicable today:

    “The Church opposes abortion and counsels its members not to submit to or perform an abortion except in the rare cases where, in the opinion of competent medical counsel, the life or good health of the mother is seriously endangered or where the pregnancy was caused by rape and produces serious emotional trauma in the mother. Even then it should be done only after counseling with the local presiding priesthood authority and after receiving divine confirmation through prayer.”

    And? Many faiths including Islam are against abortion. Is this supposed to surprise us?

    Why is abortion such a big concern to the libs on where Romney stands? America doesn't give a flying flip on abortion, gay marriage or gun control...America is more concerned with the economy, unemployment and gas prices.

    Of course if the libs were really concerned about the economy, then they should worry about their Grand Poohba about answering the hard questions about the economy and unemployment on his watch.

    Heaven forbid if his teleprompter doesn't have the answers.
