Deval Patrick Statement on Governor Romney’s Abortion Stand:
The Governor continues to play politics with a woman’s right to choose. On Monday governor Romney decided to veto emergency contraception legislation and today in his op-ed he changed his stand on an issue of fundamental privacy. By doing so, he has betrayed the trust of the people of Massachusetts. In fact, as a candidate in 2002, Governor Romney pledged both to expand access to emergency contraception and to be a pro-choice Governor. It is time for Massachusetts to demand more leadership and fewer empty promises from its governor. I pledge that I will be a pro-choice governor and I will defend a woman’s right to access emergency contraception.I'm listening.
