CHESAPEAKE, Va. – Showing the importance of undecided women voters in the presidential contest, Mitt Romney is airing a new ad aimed at reassuring them about his position on contraception and abortion.
In the ad, a woman says she is concerned that she has heard that Romney opposes all abortion and contraception, but she Googles his views and finds he does not oppose contraception “at all” and allows for abortion in the cases of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is at stake.
“I’m more concerned about the debt our children will be left with,” she concludes. “I voted for President Obama last time. We just can’t afford 4 more years.”
The ad comes as the Romney campaign appears to be making headway with undecided women voters in swing states, a critical segment of the electorate and one that appears to be swayable.
