Anti-Choice Group Backs Avowedly Pro-Choice Candidate for Mass. Governor
Boston Globe: Abortion foes lend support to Cahill, by Stephanie Ebbert:
Wins endorsement despite backing for right to choose
Independent candidate for governor Timothy P. Cahill last week picked up the endorsement of a key Massachusetts antiabortion group despite his support for abortion rights, which he promoted on his campaign website just two months ago as one of his “core values.’’
The Massachusetts Citizens for Life State Political Action Committee announced its endorsement of Cahill last Monday, saying he would be an “outstanding advocate for the unborn, the disabled, and the elderly.’’ . . .
But Cahill’s spokeswoman Amy Birmingham maintained yesterday that he remains pro-choice. On Friday, she said, “He would never do anything to overturn Roe v. Wade.’’ . . .
