“It is not enough to say the right thing some of the time; women need a senator who will be a leader all of the time,” Mindy Myers, Warren’s campaign manager, said in a statement Thursday.
Fox, the Citizens for Life leader, said Brown deserves credit for backing strong parental consent laws and opposing the procedure that opponents call partial birth abortion, among other stances.
She said she met with Brown last month and urged him to support a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks and would only apply to clinics in the District of Columbia. Brown did not rule it out and promised to study the bill, she said.
Fox said the group does not consider its support for Brown a formal endorsement because of Brown’s stated support for legalized abortion.But she said the group would urge its members to vote for the senator and enlist volunteers for his campaign.
In Brown’s 2010 race against Democrat Martha Coakley, the group ran a radio ad for Brown and recruited volunteers who made 460,000 phone calls for Brown, Fox said.
