Go to 9:05 to hear question/answers on Romney's change in Abortion position including explanation on the change, and the official Mormon Church position.

10:35 is "off air" dialogue between Romney and the host; where Romney claims Church Leadership that are Pro-Choice. Romney tells the host he is wrong when he reads from the Church publication that participation or advocacy of abortion can be disciplined.

Romney claims that the Mormon church is not firm on abortion, and that some Church Leadership is "Pro-Choice" in a seeming effort to escape scrutiny for Romney's pro-choice era. He also tried to suggest that abortion was a political issue which the Church does not engage in.

Romney also claims there is a difference between what he believes in his faith, and what he believes politically.

13:00 discusses having "morally consistent" position.

14:00 Romney says the Mormon church does not tell members they should be Pro-Life. He again reiterates that some Church leadership is Pro-Choice. The Host tries to tell Romney he is using "false logic" on the Church's position.

15:00 Romney tells host "I understand my faith better than you...having been a Bishop and Stake President."

The host corrects Romney and reads directly from Church publications on the official position, being pro-life absolutely.

17:25 Romney claims the Church does not promote prohibition on abortion and advocates freedom of choice. Then he says the Church is wrong to not advocate prohibition on abortion and seemingly tries to take a higher position than the Church on abortion.
