Baker: I’ll Do Everything I Need to Do to Protect Right to Choose

Matt Murphy State House News ServiceMay 24, 2019

BOSTON —Acknowledging a “tremendous amount of anxiety” over abortion rights around the country, Gov. Charlie Baker said Thursday that a woman’s right to choose is safe in Massachusetts, even if he remains skeptical of expanding abortion access.

“I certainly will do everything I need to do to protect a woman’s right to choose here in Massachusetts, period,” Baker said during an interview on Boston Public Radio.

The Republican governor’s comments came just days after abortion rights activists gathered at the State House in solidarity with protestors in other states opposing crackdowns on abortion access.
