GOP platform at Tampa convention won’t include abortion exemptions for rape or incest

  • NO abortion exceptions for rape in 2012 GOP party platform source

» The party is to the right of their top dog on this one – though Mitt Romney’s political positions on abortion have been rather fluid  over the long haul of his political career, the campaign’s most recent statement is that his administration would not oppose abortion, in cases in which the woman is pregnant due to an act of rape or incest. The platform committee is helmed by Governor Bob McDonnell, former VP hopeful and Romney surrogate, and is tasked with adopting the party’s official policy positions, in advance of the GOP convention in Tampa.
