Pal: Fred Thompson Worked With Pro-choice Groups

Fred Thompson

A former law colleague of likely Republican presidential candidate told CNN Monday that Thompson worked in the 1990s for a group trying to loosen abortion restrictions. Likely Republican presidential candidate has consistently voted in favor of anti-abortion legislation. Because many social conservatives see Thompson as their best hope for seeing an anti-abortion President in the White House in 2008, any perceived weakness in his position on abortion could damage his appeal among those voters. Former Democratic Rep. worked with Thompson at Arent, Fox, Kintner, Plotkin & Kahn
