Taxpayer-Funded Abortions For Massachusetts Illegals? [OPINION]
The radical NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts PAC has issued a robust endorsement of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Gonzalez in this fall's race against incumbent Republican Governor Charlie Baker.
NARAL, which has been an acronym for the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, National Abortion Rights Action League, and now the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, says Gonzalez supports its agenda, which includes taxpayer-funded abortions for illegal immigrants.
Massachusetts NARAL PAC's legislative and political director Gena Frank's endorsement of Gonzalez says:
"Reproductive freedom is under unprecedented attack at the national level. We need a governor who will be a bold champion for women and families of the time, not just when it is convenient."
"Jay Gonzalez knows that reproductive health care is health care, and abortion care is health care. He will work with us to expand access to that care for all Massachusetts residents, regardless of immigration status, and he will fight to keep families together."
Gonzalez responded that he is "honored to receive the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts." In praising the work of the PAC to defeat Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Gonzalez pledged to "be an ally to NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts and to women across this state not just some of the time, but all of the time."
NARAL attacked Baker as having "betrayed women and families" because of his support of political candidates who support Kavanaugh. Baker is also pro-choice.
All of this is just further proof that, to the left wing, there is no issue other than abortion. Making sure you get to pay for illegal immigrants to have abortions just sweetens the pot a bit more.
I say no to taxpayer-funded abortions for illegals. What do you say?
By the way, Liz Warren and Bill Keating have endorsed Gonzalez over Baker for governor.
