Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (R-Palm Springs) is at odds with the Republican Committee over a platform stance.
After the announcement that the Republican Platform Committee approved, as it did in 2004 and 2008, an anti-abortion plank that does not include support for any exemptions such as rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is at risk, Bono Mack, released the following statement:
“Every four years we go through the process of drafting a party platform and every four years this issue is particularly frustrating. I do not agree with the language that has been adopted on abortion. I am a Republican because I will always fight for economic freedom, fiscal responsibility, and energy independence. As Republicans, we will always agree more than we disagree.”
Bono Mack is running for re-election in the newly-drawn 36th Congressional District.
