Romney: I’d ‘Get Rid’ of Planned Parenthood

Though Mitt Romney won't be giving any speeches after tonight's primaries, we've heard some strong rhetoric from him in interviews with the media throughout the day. During a campaign stop in Kirkwood, Mo., today, Romney told a local reporter that he would "get rid" of Planned Parenthood when asked about programs he would cut to lower the deficit. "Of course you get rid of Obamacare, that's the easy one, but there are others," he said, citing Planned Parenthood next. As he faced a tough battle for the social-conservative vote in Alabama and Mississippi tonight, Romney's mention of Planned Parenthood may have been an attempt to emphasize an anti-abortion stance in the conservative states. However, his continuous flip-flopping on the issue has been widely reported in the media and noted by his competitors.
