Pro-Life Policies Not A Priority For Paul LePage

June 20, 2022

If Paul LePage serves another term as the governor of Maine, he says that pro-life policies would not be at the forefront of his agenda.

LePage, who has previously described himself as pro-life, said he wouldn’t seek to eliminate public funding for elective abortion in the state. 

“I wouldn’t touch that,” LePage told WMTW. “I’m not saying it won’t be brought across my desk, I’m saying it’s not anything I would initiate.”

MaineCare, the state’s Medicaid program, covers abortion. It makes Maine one of 16 states, including Massachusetts, to publicly fund elective abortions. 

LePage served as governor from 2011 to 2019. Maine prevents governors from serving three consecutive terms. He is set to face incumbent Janet Mills, a Democrat, this November.

 

New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
