The Romney campaign released an ad Tuesday night pushing back on depictions of Mitt Romney as extreme on abortion and contraception, reports the New York Times.

“You know, those ads say Mitt Romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme, so I looked into it,” a woman identified as Sarah Minto, says in the ad. She then goes on her computer to look up Romney’s position. 

She continues: “It turns out Romney doesn’t oppose contraception at all. In fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest or to save a mother’s life.”

The Obama campaign has released ads showing Romney promising to defund Planned Parenthood and with women saying that Romney will roll back their reproductive rights.
