for immediate releaseJanuary 20, 2010
Pro-abortion advocacy has cost another woman her election.
The Massachusetts Citizens for Life Political Action Committee congratulates Senator Scott Brown on his election to the United States Senate.
John Rowe, Chairman of the PAC, states, "Abortion advertising hurt Martha Coakley badly.Heradvertisements stated that Scott Brown was backed by Massachusetts Citizens for Life, an anti-abortion group.Since more than 50% of people self-identify as pro-life, this gained votes for Scott Brown.
"Brown's positions on abortion funding, parental consent and banning partial birth abortions are favored by the vast majority of Massachusetts residents, as are conscience rights.
"Coakley attracted attention to the fact that Scott Brown favors conscience rights for medical personnel while she stated that pro-life people should not be allowed to work in emergency rooms.
"Exit polls consistently find that voters who vote on the abortion issue vote two to one pro-life.This pro-life differential hurt Martha Coakley.
"Pundits agree that Shannon O'Brien lost her race for governor when she advocated abortions for 16 year old girls without their parents' knowledge or consent.Pro-abortion advocacy has cost another woman her election.
"Personally I would like to thank Martha Coakley for informing so many people about Massachusetts Citizens for Life"
