Video: Pres. Obama Says Mitt Romney Would Overturn Roe v. Wade

During an interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer, President Obama claimed that Republican presidential nominee Romney would overturn Roe v. Wade if given the opportunity.

President Obama said: “This is another example of Governor Romney hiding positions he’s been campaigning on for a year and a half... when it comes to women’s rights to control their own health care decisions, you know, what he has been saying is exactly what he believes."

"He thinks that it is appropriate for politicians to inject themselves in those decisions. Governor Romney has made it very clear that if a bill comes to his desk to overturn Roe versus Wade, he would be very supportive of it."

Pres. Obama also said that the “fundamentals” of the presidential race remain unchanged following his weak debate last week: "Governor Romney had a good night. I had a bad night. It’s not the first time I’ve had a bad night. What’s important is the fundamentals of what this race is about haven’t changed... when you have a bad game, you just move on."
