Ann Romney Doesn't Recall Contribution to Abortion Group

ABC News Tahman Bradley Reports: Former Gov. Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, said Sunday she does not remember making a contribution to an abortion-rights group in the early 1990s.

"A check for $100 written in 1993, I believe, was when the check was…I don't even remember writing the check," Mrs. Romney said on "Fox News Sunday".

"I mean, how do you remember all the checks you've written, you know, how many years ago was that?"

The Romney campaign confirmed to ABC News in May that Mrs. Romney gave a $150 donation to Planned Parenthood in 1994. LINK 

The journey to a "pro-life" position came for Mrs. Romney at the same time her husband changed his position on the issue while serving as Massachusetts governor, she said.

"I've had to make a decision, a personal decision on this and it came pretty much at the same time with Mitt…and I had to come out on the side of life."

Mitt Romney, who is seeking the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, considered himself "effectively pro-choice" until his shift in 2004.
