Allan Fung: Supports woman's restricted right to make medical decisions

On abortion, independent Joe Trillo described himself as pro-life, Raimondo said she was pro-choice and Fung said he supported "a woman's right to make medical decisions" with some restrictions.

"He can't answer a question like that. It's too difficult," Trillo said. Trillo called Fung "wimpy" for not taking positions on issues.

Allan Fung: Pro-choice position but supports a no-abortion health option

Q. Would Fung push for HealthSource RI to offer a health insurance option that excludes coverage for abortion and/or contraceptives?

A [from Fund spokesman]: While Allan has previously affirmed his pro-choice position, he also understands and respects the opinions of people on both sides of the issue. He would support providing a coverage option for those who would choose a plan that does not provide abortion coverage except in [specified] circumstances.
