NEW YORK (AP) - President Barack Obama's newest campaign ad shows challenger Mitt Romney saying he'd "be delighted" to sign a bill banning abortion.
But the 30-second spot takes Romney out of context. Romney did say during a debate in 2007 that he'd sign such a bill. But what he said afterward - that a federal abortion ban is "not where America is today" - was left out of the ad.
The ad will air in the battleground state of Virginia.
The spot seeks to push back on a Romney campaign ad released earlier this week that says the Republican hopeful, who broadly opposes abortion, believes it should be an option in cases of rape, incest or when the woman's life is at stake.
Both campaigns are making a hard play for female voters.
