HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon proclaims to be "a pro-choice woman" in her television ads, but many abortion opponents, including a top leader of Connecticut's Right to Life organization, say they still plan to vote for her in November.
It is the nuances of McMahon's abortion stance that have won over some of those voters.
McMahon supports parental notification for minors seeking an abortion and opposes late-term procedures. She also opposes a state law requiring a Catholic hospital to provide emergency contraception to rape victims. McMahon, a Roman Catholic, said she believes it's government overreach.
Chris O'Brien, the legislative affairs vice president for Connecticut Right to Life, said McMahon is the "best on those issues."
Democratic Senate candidate U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy has questioned McMahon's commitment to abortion rights.

LOL..If her nose grew an inch every time she lied, she wouldn't be able to turn around in the coliseum of the XL center without bumping it. Its becoming more apparent that the people of CT are seeing that she is liar and that Murphy will win the election. This last debate should be fun. Linda will be a raving lunatic and will probably blame Murphy for the Vietnam war and WW2.

Linda "Pinocchio" McMahon, She will say and do anything for a vote, She isn't pro-choice, never has been. She's so full of it her eyes and roots are turning brown.

Of course they are voting for her,,she's LYING thru her teeth when she tells people she is pro-choice. She's been anti abortion as long as anyone knows, she was anti abortion last time against Blumenthal. When she says she is pro choice..SHE IS LYING,,she does it extremely well though. If it comes out of her mouth,,,its a lie,,plain and simple
