Brown Says He Favors Abortion Rights, Opposes Federal Funding

Senator-elect Scott Brown (R-MA) “says he opposes federal funding for abortions, but thinks women should have the right to choose whether to have one,” the AP reports.

Brown tells ABC’s "This Week" that he disagrees with his party’s position that the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion should be overturned.

Brown says the abortion question is one that’s best handled by a woman, her family and her doctor. He also says more effort needs to go into reducing the number of abortions in the U.S.

Brown has said the GOP shouldn’t take his vote for granted on every issue. He says he’s fiscally conservative but more moderate on social issues.
