Mitt Romney’s traveling to the Vatican today to attend Boston Archbishop Sean O’Malley’s elevation to cardinal.
Also, he’s declining to issue the annual gubernatorial proclamation celebrating the 1972 Supreme Court case Eisenstadt v. Baird, which legalized birth control for unmarried couples, as a precursor to Roe v. Wade. He issued the proclamation last year, though omitted the traditional references to Roe v. Wade.
This gradual turning away from Roe is a far cry from his answer to Planned Parenthood’s 2002 candidate questionnaire. To the question “Do you support the substance of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade?” Romney answered, “yes.”
