Mitt Romney sparked controversy on Wednesday after he told a reporter in Ohio that he would oppose a bill proposed by Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) which would permit employers to deny coverage of contraception (and other health services) to their employees on the basis of personal moral objections (video below).
Romney said: “I’m not for the bill. But look, the idea of presidential candidates getting into questions about contraception, within a relation between a man and a woman, a husband and wife, I’m not going there.”

But later, Romney said that he misunderstood the question (video below) and said he does support the Blunt amendment, which failed in the Senate today 51-48. Romney then implied that the late Sen. Ted Kennedy would have supported it as well.
