Ann Romney says parents never stop parenting or worrying about their children. She says mothers and fathers deserve respect whether they work outside the home or not.
A Democratic activist set off a tempest Wednesday by saying Ann Romney has "never worked a day in her life."
Ann Romney stayed home to raise the couple's five sons.
She gave a "shout-out" Friday to all working moms and dads, and said she loves them all.
Mitt Romney used the NRA gathering to make his first public comments on the issue. He said he believes all moms are working moms and called his wife a hero.
