Interesting how quickly Paul Ryan, that alleged voice of principle in the Republican party, has jettisoned his previous positions now that he’s running for vice president. Though he has repeatedly sponsored legislation that would ban abortion in all cases, he’s now on board with allowing rape victims to have abortions:
“Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan disagree with Mr. Akin’s statement. A Romney-Ryan administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape,” the campaign said in a statement confirmed by TPM.
Ryan seems to be joining the Romney flip-flop express.
