Today the Massachusetts Citizens for Life PAC endorsed Mark Fisher, calling him the most pro-life candidate in the race.
For Immediate Release
Statement by Madeline McComish, Chairman, MCFL State PAC, June 19, 2014, Boston
“Today the MCFL State PAC announces its endorsement of Mark Fisher in his quest for Governor.
“MCFL PAC believes that all voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of those on the edges of life should vote for Mark Fisher because he will support vital pro-life public policies.
“Mark Fisher is a strong supporter of pro-life measures, including A Woman’s Right to Know, a Massachusetts Partial-Birth Abortion Ban, a ban on sex-selection abortions, and the licensing of abortion facilities in the state. He opposes tax funding of abortion and doctor-prescribed suicide.
“This endorsement reflects Mark’s commitment to strengthening a culture of life throughout the Commonwealth. We look forward to working with him to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family.
“In the Republican Primary, Mark is opposed by Charlie Baker, who favors tax funding of abortion and opposes A Woman’s Right to Know. All of the Democratic contenders for Governor take positions strongly in favor of abortion.”
Unlike 2010 when MCFL endorsed the pro-choice Tim Cahill, this endorsement makes sense. It will help Fisher with name recognition, but probably won’t be enough to make a serious dent in Charlie Baker’s commanding lead.
With being against partial birth abortion, and for parental notification, Baker is pro-choice, not pro-abortion. When the general election comes around, that is a significant difference.
