Statement from Mass Dems Executive Director on Mass GOP Platform Vote Opposing Choice and Equality

BOSTON, MA – Following the Massachusetts Republican Party’s overwhelming 52-16 decision to embrace a platform restricting the rights of men and women, Massachusetts Democratic Party Executive Director Matt Fenlon released the following statement:

“The same Tea Party wing that forced Republican Charlie Baker to pick Karyn Polito as his running mate is trying to bring Massachusetts back to the Stone Age by denying women the right to make their own healthcare decisions and denying men and women the right to marry whomever they love. No matter how many times Baker claims to be a different breed of Republican, he is the standard bearer of the Massachusetts Republican Party, which shares the same extreme goals of the National Republican Party: turning back the clock on human rights issues.”
