Mitt Romney: 'Wrong in the Past' on Abortion

Specifically, he told National Review that he once had supported abortion rights, but had changed his mind when someone set him straight on the matter of embryonic stem-cell research. In this regard, he is a breath of fresh air--because how many politicians, finding that they need to change their minds about something, ever admit that they are changing their minds? I have to respect a man who can change his mind and be brave enough to explain why he changed his mind, without a lot of Orwellian double-talk.
