Romney Platform Changes (A Relgious Groups Perspective)

Mitt Romney on Abortion:

1994: "Abortion should be safe and legal in this country."
“Let me make this very clear, I will preserve and protect a woman’s right to

2011: "I believe people understand that I'm firmly pro-life."

Mitt Romney on Homosexual Marriage:

1994: “As we seek to establish full equality [for gays], I will provide more effective
           leadership than my opponent, [Edward Kennedy]".

2011: “I believe we should have a federal amendment to the Constitution that defines
         marriage as between a man and a woman.”

Mitt Romney on Homosexuality in the Military:

1994: "[I support] gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly."
2007: "‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ has worked well... We’re in the middle of a conflict. Now is
           not the time for a change in that regard, and I don’t have a policy posture as to
           allowing gays in the military to serve there openly."

Mitt Romney on Healthcare:

2007: “I’m proud of what we’ve done... If Massachusetts succeeds in implementing it, then
          that will be a model for the nation.”

2011: "What works in one state may not be the answer for another."

Mitt Romney on Immigration:

2006: "[I am against] rounding up 11 million people and forcing them at gunpoint from
          our country."

2008: "I disagree fundamentally that the 12 million people who come here illegally should
          be allowed to stay here permanently. I think that is a form of amnesty and that it's
          not appropriate."

Mitt Romney on Campaign Finance Reform:

1994: "I would like to have campaign spending limits."
2007: "The American people should be free to advocate for their candidates and their
           positions without burdensome limitations." 

“I believe in my Mormon faith, and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers. I will be true to them and to my beliefs." (Mitt Romney, December 6, 2007)

People are way too critical of Mitt Romney. Several presidents have been a certain religion, I don't think it should be a problem of which religion people belong to. Voters need to focus on the politics more than anything. Most of these statements provide brief understandings of what Romney wants for the country and with more elaboration it's easy to see that some of these answers are the same just more elaborate.
