He does not recall...

Post by T on Sat Sep 27, 2014 1:25 pm

Nicole Clegg, vice president of public policy for Planned Parenthood in Maine, said LePage did not seem to know the facts about the groupís health clinics, and that 95 percent of the care offered there is not abortions, but services such as annual health exams, sexually transmitted disease prevention and treatment, birth control and cancer screenings.

She also said she was not surprised that LePage claimed he did not recall vetoing LD 1247lol! , the bill to expand womenís health services to roughly 13,000 low-income women.

ďItís not surprising. What weíve seen nationally is that candidates (like LePage) with bad records or hostile positions toward womenís health tend to hide from that issue, because they know itís going to hurt their ability to get re-elected,Ē she said.
