WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney said Tuesday that he has no plans to introduce legislation restricting abortion if elected U.S. president, as he scrambles to soften earlier hard-line views that could estrange women voters in November.
"There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," the Republican presidential nominee told The Des Moines Register's editorial board in the battleground state of Iowa.
But Romney said he would restore a law ended by President Barack Obama that prohibits nonprofit groups receiving federal government funds from providing abortions in other countries.
