Paul Ryan on Abortion

“I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the idea that, the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life."

Paul Ryan, making it clear he does not believe that women should be allowed to get abortions in the case of rape and incest.

I'm glad that Ryan didn't duck the question. This gives women a clear choice between a man who would legally exercise complete control over women's bodies and President Obama. The platform for the Republican National Convention makes no exceptions for women to have abortions. Romney is attempting to downplay his party's abortion position and accuse Democrats of making political hay. That doesn't explain why Romney is allowing his party to write a platform that outlaw abortion. Even when the woman's life is at risk.
