US election 2012: Mitt Romney's stance on abortion changes - then changes again

Mitt Romney appeared to make another abrupt shift to the political centre-ground on Wednesday, saying that he did not plan to enact laws that would prevent American women from being able to have abortions. 

During an interview in Iowa, a key swing state, the Republican presidential challenger reversed the tough anti-abortion rhetoric he used while campaigning for his party's candidacy earlier this year.
"There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," Mr Romney told the editors of The Des Moines Register, whose endorsement he is seeking.
His remarks appeared to be the latest in a series of retreats from the Right – on issues such as taxation and entitlements – that have wrong-footed President Barack Obama and his re-election campaign.
Yet Mr Romney's position seemed to change again within hours. Andrea Saul, his spokesman, told a magazine he "would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life". Later still, she would say only that "Mitt Romney is proudly pro-life, and he will be a pro-life president".
