Caption / Share


OBAMA: Supports abortion rights. Health care law requires contraceptives to be available for free for women enrolled in workplace health plans, including access to morning-after pill. Supported requiring girls 16 and under to get a prescription for the morning-after pill, available without a prescription for older women.

ROMNEY: Opposes abortion rights, previously supported them. Says state law should guide abortion rights, and Roe v. Wade should be reversed by a future Supreme Court ruling. But says Roe v. Wade is law of the land until that happens, and should not be challenged by federal legislation seeking to overturn abortion rights affirmed by that court decision. Said he would end federal aid to Planned Parenthood.
