82. Chaupette was only semi-anti-choice
He had a complicated set of criteria for when he though abortion should be limited, but was otherwise more-or-less pro-choice.

But Massachusetts was not (and still isn't) a handful of votes away from banning abortion. They were (and still are) a handful of votes away from banning gay marriage.

I figured (and still believe) that in Massachusetts, marriage equality is more at risk than reproductive rights.

A Progressive Republican who believes in Marriage Equality vs a pro-choice DINO beholden to the bigots... especially in a state where there are fewer Republicans in office than there are bathrooms in The State House. One progressive Republican would do a lot less damage than one right-wing DINO who can hide behind the cloak of calling herself a Democrat.

And I am so glad that Phil Dunkelbarger is running against Stephen Lynch in the Primary.
