Romney Falls Further Out of Touch With Women

Romney’s stance on abortion not only contradicts his earlier statements but continues to lose him women voters. 


Once, long ago, Romney believed that abortion “should be safe and legal in this country.” Now, as he charges ever more towards the right, he has rejected his earlier views, further alienating women voters. Nation columnist Melissa Harris-Perry and Nation senior editor Emily Douglas discuss just how out of touch Romney has become, and how his stance is costing him mightily in swing states.
