Joe Kyrillos on Abortion
"I have now been in three debates, and I've heard three different answers" from Kyrillos about abortion, said Menendez, who added he is pro-choice. "What I don't believe women in this state can afford is someone who goes to the Senate and is multiple-choice," he said.
The campaign has pressed for women's votes, noting that Mr. Kyrillos declined to vote on a resolution supporting an equal-pay act.
Mr. Kyrillos, more velveteen and affable, does not come off as an extremist. He said that he was unfamiliar with the questionnaire, but that he supported parental notifications and waiting periods for abortions--positions, he said, most voters also support.
At the debate on Thursday, Kyrillos declined to answer when asked if he would support a Supreme Court nominee who would most likely vote to overturn the law barring federal recognition of same-sex marriage. He said only that he would give a fair hearing to a president's nominees.
