LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "He could not have on his conscience, creating human life for experimentation," Ann Romney said. 
She added, "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." 

Ann Romney then explained that women today are more concerned about economic problems facing their families than anything else. 

Mitt Romney's current stance on abortion includes a strong personal objection to it with a preference that the issue be decided on the state level. Romney remains willing to allow exceptions in cases of rape, incest, and the life of the mother. 

Romney's position on this critical issue is important because the next president is widely expected to appoint one or two new Supreme Court justices, which could solidify the court's position one way or another. Currently, the court has a slim conservative majority. 

Ann spent most of the time during the interview discussing lighter topics, such as Costco, the household chore wheel, and television. 

She also mentioned that she has stopped watching television because she can no longer stand watching campaign ads. "The American people are sick of campaign ads, am I right?" 

Perhaps the biggest disappointment for the show was that Mitt Romney himself did not appear. Although he was invited, other concerns prevented him from attending. Ann quoted her husband's quip that the women hosting the show were "too shared-tongued and not conservative."

Mitt Romney's staff did confirm that the Governor has scheduling issues and could not appear on the show. 

Despite the Governor's absence, the appearance of Ann Romney should help Mitt Romney's ratings as more Americans have the opportunity to see the personal side of the Romney family.
