In one of the first hints that the American people had grown weary of Obama and his iron-pantied gimme girls, Brown won seat in a race with Martha Coakley, despite Ted's widow endorsing and campaigning Coakley.
You may remember this shining moment: Early in the race, Warren was caught in a big fib about her ethnicity.
A tough whopper to trump, but this is Massachusetts, where Anne Fox of MCFL has been circling pro-life wagons with her pants on fire for about a decade.
When Scott Brown re-affirmed he is a supporter of abortion, Anne Fox said that while she believes him, she believes Brown's stated support for abortion and promises to protect abortion, fund abortion...drumroll...IS PRO-LIFE!!
Brown has seized on Akin’s remarks to bolster his abortion-rights credentials. He was the first Senate Republican to call for Akin to abandon his campaign, and he urged his party “to recognize in its platform that you can be pro-choice and still be a good Republican.”
On Wednesday, in response to a reporter’s question over whether he would pledge to “never vote in the Senate to curb women’s reproductive rights,” Brown said he would agree.
“I have a long record of this already,” he said. “I’ll promise that. I’ve already been on record on that.”
In 2005, he sought to allow doctors and nurses to opt out of offering emergency contraception to rape victims if the health care workers had religious objections. Brown later voted for the bill without his changes, meaning doctors and nurses would be required to offer emergency contraception, regardless of their beliefs.
In addition, Brown cosponsored the Women’s Right to Know Act, which would require women to wait 24 hours before having an abortion and to review pictures and information detailing the development of their fetus.
But Brown has also taken votes in the state Senate and the US Senate that were applauded by abortion-rights supporters. In 2007, he voted to create a 35-foot buffer zone to keep protesters away from abortion clinics. In 2012, he voted to repeal a law that required women in the military who are victims of rape to pay for abortions at military facilities. He also opposed an effort to cut off federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
“We consider him a senator who votes prolife,” said Anne Fox, president of the Massachusetts Citizens for Life. “We have to take his word for it when he says he is prochoice. But what we’re looking for is someone who votes prolife, and he does.”
There you have it.
I know what you're wondering...
What persons in their right mind would elect such a misguided individual to be President of Massachusetts Citizens for Life?
It's an unsolved mystery to authentic Catholic grassroots pro-lifers and pro-life candidates who have been sabotaged by MCFL.
