Colin Powell on Abortion

Secretary of State (Pres. Bush Cabinet)


Supports a woman’s right to choose

You all know that I believe in a woman’s right to choose and I strongly support affirmative action. And, I was invited here by my party to share my views with you because we are a big enough party -- and big enough people -- to disagree on individual issues and still work together for our common goal: restoring the American Dream.
