"I do not support the law of Alabama," Romney told Jake Tapper, of CNN, on "The State of the Union."
Romney, a former Massachusetts governor who had been running for president of the Republican president in 2012, said he was opposed to abortion but that he favored the exceptions "for rape and incest and where the life of the mother is in danger ".
When she signed the bill, Ms. Ivey pointed out that the new measure may be inapplicable because of the landmark decision of the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade, which established the right to abortion throughout the country in 1973. But the new law was passed in order to challenge this decision. I said.
Rejecting the problem of measures taken on both sides of the debate, Romney said, "People have gone to the wings, if you will."
"I think something much more center-oriented makes more sense," he said.
Montana's governor, Steve Bullock, a presidential candidate for the 2020 Democratic Party, also raised the issue on Sunday, saying in the same program that the decision on whether or not to have an abortion should be left to women.
"But in any case, it's not people like me who will make those decisions, and I think that's the most important point," he told Tapper. "And that's not what I think, that's what every woman has to do with her body and her health care – and these are not decisions I should make."
