Suozzi enters abortion debate

"Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi this morning said he wanted to bring together "intelligent, thoughtful, compassionate and religious people" on both sides of the abortion debate by spending $1 million a year for three years on homes for single mothers, programs to encourage adoption, and education to prevent unplanned pregnancies."

Text of Suozzi's Speech

Suozzi mentions Patricia Shea and Momma's House and how he helped this pro-life group, as mentioned on this blog. Suozzi is clearly in a difficult position as a Democrat who must tow the party line on abortion. His stance on pushing abortion alternatives does predate the current Hillary Clinton-led push to the middle that Democrats have adopted since the election.
