Romney on Same-Sex Parents: “It’s not right on paper. It’s not right in fact.”

Video has surfaced of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney condemning same-sex parents.

The video of Romney speaking to an audience of social conservatives in South Carolina in 2005 comes after The Boston Globe reported last week that as governor of Massachusetts Romney blocked birth certificates for same-sex couples who have children.

“Some are actually having children born to them,” Romney says of gay couples in his state, adding, “It’s not right on paper. It’s not right in fact. Every child has the right to have a mother and father.”
