CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio – Mitt Romney continued his shift to the center Tuesday, saying he wouldn’t pursue any abortion legislation if he wins the presidency.

“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,” Mr. Romney told The Des Moines Register’s editorial boardTuesday as he sought its endorsement.

Mr. Romney, who is opposed to abortion with certain exceptions, promised other moves to limit abortions. Before traveling to Ohio, he told the Iowa newspaper he would sign an executive order to ban U.S. foreign aid money from being used for abortions.

The GOP candidate has previously vowed to eliminate federal funds for Planned Parenthood clinics. And he said, if elected, he would appoint Supreme Court judges who oppose Roe v. Wade.

Mr. Romney has been trying to strike a more moderate tone on a host of issues from health care to immigration in an attempt to woo undecided voters.

High on the list of demographics he’s struggled with: Female voters, many of whom have cited his stance on women’s issues as a reason for their support for President Barack Obama.

I sure don't want Obama, but Romney is not getting my vote either. First, he is Mormon, which is certainly not Christian, but he is such an etch-a-sketch, who seems to say whatever will make him popular. I will be voting for Virgil Goode, who probably doesn't stand a chance, but at least is principled and stands by what he says.
