“I’m just sickened by his decision to sign House Bill 40.”
“He personally told me he was not going to [sign the bill] so I feel like he either lied to me or maybe he changed his mind, and thought this was a better strategic [political] tactic.
“I don’t know, but I literally feel sick to my stomach and I’m on the verge of tears.”
State Senator Pam Althoff, in the same article, said the following:
I did not support the measure, but I am not surprised he signed the bill.”
“Throughout this entire issue I have been very clear about my personal position and that is I am a pro-choice candidate.
“But I’ve always drawn the line at utilizing taxpayer dollars for abortion when this state is still almost 50 percent divided on this issue on whether it’s appropriate or inappropriate.”
