Shocked. Not shocked.
During his New Jersey congressional race in 2000—the only other time he has run for federal office—Patrick Morrisey opposed a constitutional amendment protecting unborn babies from abortion, running in open defiance of a key plank in the Republican Party Platform:
“Ferguson has the support of state and national anti-abortion organizations and says he would support a constitutional amendment to ban abortion. The other abortion opponent in the field, Morrisey, says he would not support such an amendment.” Associated Press, May 15, 2000
Republican voters in New Jersey REJECTED Morrisey’s pro-abortion stance. West Virginia voters need to do the same. The sanctity of life is a non-negotiable core value of our party and our country. Not so much for Patrick.
