Tom Vilsack on Abortion

Democratic IA Governor


A Catholic who supports abortion rights

Sen. John Kerry campaigned across Iowa with Gov. Tom Vilsack, widely reported to be on Kerry’s vice presidential short list. A Catholic who supports abortion rights and has taken heat from some in the church hierarchy for his stance, Kerry said, “I oppos abortion, personally. I don’t like abortion. I believe life does begin at conception.” On Sunday, Kerry sat in a church pew near Vilsack, also a Catholic who supports abortion rights, and his wife, Christie, one of Kerry’s earliest backers in Iowa.
