Romney misrepresents pro-life politicians

He's been in a rush to state that his position on abortion evolved "just like other great leaders" - a justification for his recent flip-flop. First, we find Mitt Romney's campaign grossly exaggerated Sen. Sam Brownback's record and now it appears that the same was done to President Bush:

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said this week that President Bush “was pro-choice before he became pro-life,” an assertion the Romney campaign now acknowledges was inaccurate. The remark was based on a magazine article Romney had read, his campaign said.
Yet, the Romney campaign has plastered these very articles all over his campaign website and one is written by Romney's adviser on life issues. Please, Romney, stop trying to make yourself look good by falsely representing the record of others.
