That's the only way I can figure that Mayor Walsh calls himself Catholic.
Boston's Mayor Martin Walsh has apologized for referring to himself
as "personally pro-life," and said that he would never use that term in
Walsh, who is Catholic, spoke to the Boston Globe after
receiving an award from NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts. He acknowledged
that in the past he has described himself as "personally pro-life," but
said: "I don't even know where I came up with that."
When reminded that other Catholic politicians have said that they are
"personally pro-life" while defending unrestricted abortion, Walsh
responded: "Yeah, but I think you can get criticized for that statement
today.... Things change over time. I think there's [sic] clear lines today."
Leaving no doubt about his stand, Walsh said that in the future: "I
would just say I'm a pro-choice candidate. I'm a pro-choice mayor, I was
a pro-choice legislator."
From his biography:
Mayor Walsh continues to reside in Dorchester, where he shares his life
with longtime partner Lorrie Higgins and her daughter, Lauren.
