Abortion Rights Activist Weighs (PA)Senate Bid

AP -WASHINGTON - Abortion rights advocate Kate Michelman says she will decide soon whether to enter the Pennsylvania Senate race as an independent, a bid that could cause more of a problem for the Democratic challenger than for Republican Sen. Rick Santorum.

Michelman's entrance in the race could erode support for State Treasurer Bob Casey, an anti-abortion candidate who is expected to easily win the Democratic primary in May. For months, Casey has led Santorum, the No. 3 Senate Republican, in opinion polls and national Democrats consider the seat one of their best chances for a pickup.

Michelman, a former president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, said there is angst in her camp over Casey's endorsement of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito. She said Democratic Party leaders promised that Casey, if elected, would not vote to confirm justices opposed to abortion.

"He's a perfectly fine person, but not someone we can trust to defend our rights, not at all," Michelman said in an interview. "If that upsets the political establishment, so be it."<snip>
