To follow-up on RB's post regarding the history of Rudy's abortion stance, I would like to bring to your attention the following passage from Lifenews.com, one of the most stridently Pro-Life groups on the web:
Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who says he's a recent pro-life convert, vetoed an embryonic stem cell research promotion bill in his state and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, two other 2008 possibilities, are both pro-life.
To refresh everyone's memory, Mitt Romney has campaigned in the past on the belief that abortion "remains safe and legal".
If it was so easy for Mitt to flip his abortion stance, (so much so that Lifenews now groups him with Pro-Life candidates in this piece), why are people so skeptical of Rudy's chances should he change his position?
