"Kerry's Deputy Communications Director, Dag Vega,
confirmed with us that the senator is "personally opposed" to
abortion while still remaining pro-choice publicly and politically.
BUT....LOOK AT WHAT HE ACTUALLY HAS SAID:
Kerry at last year's NARAL Pro-Choice America Dinner:
"I think that tonight we have to make it clear that we are not going
to turn back the clock. There is no overturning of Roe v. Wade...
There is no outlawing of a procedure necessary to save a woman's life
or health and there are no more cutbacks on population control
efforts around the world. We need to take on this President and all
of the forces of intolerance on this issue. We need to honestly and
confidently and candidly take this issue out to the country and we
need to speak up and be proud of what we stand for."
