PEORIA, Ill. — Mitt Romney wanted to talk about the economy, but students at Bradley University had other ideas.

The Republican presidential front-runner faced tough questions about his opposition to Planned Parenthood and mandatory birth control coverage as he met with students Monday night, the eve of the Republican primary in Illinois.

Romney said people should vote "for the other guy" if they want "free stuff" like female contraception. And he doesn't have an answer for where the millions of women who use Planned Parenthood for breast cancer screenings and vaccines should go if the women's health provider shuts down.

Romney said the women can go wherever they'd like because it's a free society but that the government shouldn't send tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, which provides abortions and health services, including contraception, to women.
