Kerry Healey on Abortion


I've always been pro choice, even when Romney disagreed

Q: Tell me what policy of Gov. Romney's you disagree with.

HEALEY: We've always disagreed on choice and I think those differences have only become more stark over time. And I respect that, I respect differences of opinion, but I've always been pro choice.

Favors embryonic stem cell research

Healey has taken a different, less conservative stand than Romney. In February she said she favors embryonic stem cell research, the subject of a bill that Romney unsuccessfully vetoed last year.

$1B for stem cell research is irresponsible

Healey blasted Gabrieli's proposal to have the state invest $1 billion in stem cell and other scientific research through the sale of bonds, calling it "pretty irresponsible" and "a decision just made in the dark."

"I don't think he understands how the budget works here in Massachusetts, and obviously he can't be trusted to control the budget," she said.

"First, Healey was against stem cell research," said a Gabrieli spokesman. "Then she was for it. Now, it sounds like she's against it again.
