After appearing on the women’s talk show “The View,” Ann Romney revealed that the women of America are most concerned with their economic status in the country, rather than their right to being pro-choice versus pro-life.
Romney reiterated that she would not be making the decisions, that her it’s her husband’s job if he were to be nominated as president. She added that she is pro-life, even though when Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he ran as pro-choice.
“The good news is, I'm not running for office and I don't have to say what I feel. But I am pro-life. I'm happy to say that,” she said.
Ann Romney continued to speak on the matter the Republican presidential candidate not wanting to use stem cells for research.

“That's when he came out saying he was pro-life. I think we all have to understand this is an issue that is so tender and there are people on both sides of the issue, with very good conscience, coming with a different opinion.”
“Four years ago there were a lot of other issues on the table. What I hear from women now is ‘help, please help,”’ she said, attempting to explain that the economic status of our country is more important that reproductive rights.
“If you really want to make a choice and those choices are about reproductive rights, that’s your choice.”
Barbara Walters wanted to let her audience know that her show doesn’t have a bias.
She explained to the audience, “I think that there are some people who think that we favour the Obamas, because they have been on the program separately and together.”
Walters continued: “Governor Romney was supposed to be on with us this Thursday with Ann Romney. We were looking forward to it.
“Over the weekend, his people said that he had scheduling problems and would not be coming on with us. Nor at this point did he feel that he could reschedule.
“We are happy to have Mrs. Romney on with us. We are sorry that we won't have Governor Romney and that's the situation.
“He can change his mind and we hope he does. It would be our pleasure to have him on the program,” Walters concluded.
