Shea-Porter For Congress - Congressman Guinta More Extreme than Senate Candidate Mourdock

Manchester, NH— Congressman Frank Guinta is even more extreme than Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who, when making his awful statement about rape, at least said that he does believe that a woman should be allowed to live if she needs a lifesaving abortion.

Naomi Andrews, Campaign Manager for Carol Shea-Porter, released the following statement. "Congressman Frank Guinta’s chilling position of no exceptions at all—more extreme than Senate Candidate Richard Mourdock—is cruel and reflects his contempt towards women. For this and so many other reasons, New Hampshire voters should cast a vote on November 6th against Congressman Frank Guinta and his frightening extremism.”


·         In response to two questions on abortion, Guinta said he is pro life, and, were a repeal to Roe v. Wade come up while he was serving in Congress, he would vote for a no-holds barred ban on abortion with "no exceptions.”
