Rudy dissents on Roe v. Wade

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

All but one of the 10 candidates at the first debate of 2008 Republican presidential contenders said it would be a “good day for America” if Roe v. Wade were repealed. Only Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, said repeal of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 decision upholding a right to abortion would be “ok,” but leaving it on the books would also be “ok.” On another social issue in Thursday night’s MSNBC debate, three candidates – Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee – raised their hands when asked who doesn’t believe in evolution.
