Kerry defends abortion on Hispanic television network

.- In a brief interview with the Hispanic television network Univision, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry justified his support for abortion by saying the act is a decision between “the woman, God and her doctor.”

Kerry’s response to the question was eliminated from the transcript of the interview which Univision posted on its website.

Nevertheless, the response was included in the televised version as millions of Hispanics tuned in.

After speaking on Iraq, eventual immigration reform and the economy, reporter Maria Elena Salinas said, “Some sectors of the Catholic Church are concerned because you support abortion and therefore you would be going against its teachings,” to which Kerry responded: “I am against abortion.”

Salinas then asked if he would name justices to the Supreme Court who would be willing to limit abortion.  Kerry replied, “I am in favor of the right to choose.  Personally I am opposed to abortion, but I believe this is a decision that should be made by the woman, God and her doctor.”

A partial transcript of the interview with Kerry, excluding the question on abortion, can be read in Spanish at:
