Romney's abortion rewrite edits out 'dear, close family relative'

From Daily Kos:

One week after Mitt Romney comically claimed "There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," the Romney campaign began airing a new ad whitewashing his past positions and his party's extremist present on the issue. After all, Romney's latest cynical play for women voters doesn't merely omit his call for new Supreme Justices to overturn Roe v. Wade, his past willingness to sign a federal abortion ban in its wake, his backing for the Blunt Amendment and ending Title X spending for women's health care that would limit access to contraception or his current support for state "personhood" initiatives and "fetal pain" bills. As it turns out, Mitt Romney's "binder full of women" no longer includes Ann Keenan, the "dear, close family relative" whose death from an illegal abortion 50 years ago once inspired his now abandoned pro-choice politics.
