a few ideas for stance on abortion

An idea for language on abortion for Mitt - He could say something like, "You know, I would prefer to live in a country where there would be no reason for a woman to want to get an abortion. If that isn't possible, my second choice would be to live in a county where unwanted pregnancies were not ended in abortions, but rather taken to term and raised by the mother (and father - if that is possible in the situation) or given up for adoption."

It seems that where we are now, if RvW were to be overturned, it would tear up political relations in the country almost as bad as family dynamics and values for life are being torn up now with all the abortions that are occurring. So instead of overturning RvW through Congress, RvW could be overturned in the sense of moving things toward the second choice (see above). Mitt could emphasize, then, a policy of greatly reducing the number of abortions by 1. encouraging teaching abstinence education in schools as an option (as I understand he has done in Massachusetts), and 2. supporting adoptions as the much better alternative to abortions.

I think these points could be incorporated into Mitt's stance that individual states should each decide their own stance on abortion.

I think the oven Mitt needs to come out swinging on explaining his views on the public legality of abortion, past and present. if he doesnt own the terms of his stances, his opponenets will.

He needs to show that the issue has never been how he personally feels about abortion, as he has always felt it to be wrong. He can also show he has never supported public funding of abortion, as taxpayers who are against it should not have to pay for them. he can also show he has always voted to make abortion laws more restrictive, never less, especially with respect to minors.

because we live ina world where you cannot get all of your way at once. Steps in the right direction often need to be taken incrimentally. He has always done that with respect to his actions on the abortion issue.
