Mass. Gov. Charlie Baker has said from the beginning that he is not interested in reducing abortion’s protection under the law in Massachusetts and his three picks for the Supreme Judicial Court make that clear.
Kimberly Budd, Frank Gaziano, and David Lowy have all made it known that they are “personally pro-choice.” Furthermore, Baker’s spokesman has said he expects that they would “follow settled law” on abortion.
But of course that’s not enough for NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts. The radical group wants a guarantee from Baker that his nominees will be rabidly pro-abortion. Christian Miron of NARAL wrote in an email to The Springfield Republican, "Gov. Baker only anticipates that his nominees will follow settled law. There is just too much at stake for Massachusetts women to settle for anything less than an unambiguous assurance that every justice Governor Baker nominates to the Supreme Judicial Court will uphold a woman's right to full reproductive freedom and ensure women's access to safe, legal abortion in the Commonwealth."
On one hand, this is a common pattern for the pro-abortion crowd, where they demand full obeisance to their agenda from politicians, especially Republicans, even if they are avowedly pro-choice. On the other hand, it also shows that the pro-abortion crowd is running a bit scared, even in Massachusetts. Presumably, they see the pro-life gains being made around the country and are worried about it happening here.
