MA: Pro-Life Group Reconsiders and Reiterates Support for Cahill

From Life News:
After the dustup in the wake of its endorsement of independent gubernatorial candidate Tim Cahill, Massachusetts Citizens for Life has released a further statement helping pro-life voters understand its decision-making. The group says it is not re-evaluating its decision to back Cahill and that his opponents are clearly pro-abortion.

"There has been some confusion regarding the endorsement of Tim Cahill by the MCFL PAC," the organization said in a statement to LifeNews.com. "The PAC endorsed the Cahill-Loscocco ticket because the ticket is the best choice to advance the pro-life cause."

MCFL says Cahill "made it clear" in two different meeting with officials of the pro-life group that, while he believes Roe v. Wade is "settled law," he supports parental notification, tax credits for adoptions, and, as governor, will sign pro-life legislation such as informed consent, a partial-birth abortion ban, and an unborn victims bill.

"As Governor, Tim Cahill will work to create a culture of life across Massachusetts," the group said, adding that he has promised to veto any bill legalizing assisted suicide. "In both meetings, Cahill was forthright, candid and thoughtful."
