New Jersey Governor Takes Heat for Abortion Stance

Ever since she vetoed her state’s ban on D&X abortions, New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman has been plagued by a small but vocal group of protesters. Whitman, a moderate Republican, vetoed the ban because it did not include provisions to protect the woman’s life. Although pollsters predict that her conservative views on other issues will help her defeat Democrat state Senator Jim McGreevey this fall, Gov. Whitman does admit that her abortion stance could pose a problem with grassroots Republicans.
