Connecticut gubernatorial candidate John DeStefano, a Catholic, supports forcing Catholic hospitals to provide chemical abortions. Turning his back on religious liberty and unborn children has won him the endorsement of the pro-abortion group NOW:

Although Mayor DeStefano’s opponent is a woman, it is crystal clear which gubernatorial candidate is best for the women of Connecticut,” she said without naming Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell.
One of the reasons for the endorsement was the controversy over a bill that would require all hospitals to provide the “Plan B” emergency contraceptive, the so-called “morning after pill,” to rape victims. Rell opposed the bill this year, saying there is no reason to change state law and that Roman Catholic hospitals should not be forced to provide pills that violate their beliefs. Rell’s running mate, former state Rep. Michael Fedele, said in a debate last week that the issue will become “moot” Jan. 1 when Plan B becomes available over the counter.

If, as NOW claims, DeStefano is “best for women” because he supports the pro-abortion attack on religious liberty, why does the latest Q poll show likely female voters preferring Rell by 65% to 27%? NOW’s endorsement is further evidence that—thankfully—they speak only for themselves and not, as they claim, for all women.

Also, the New Jersey court ruling imposing same-sex “marriage” or its equivalent is having repercussions in the fight for Congress:

NORFOLK, Va. — In the final stretch before Election Day, embattled Republicans feel as if they’ve received a gift from an unlikely donor: advocates of gay marriage.

They think that last week’s ruling by New Jersey’s Supreme Court ordering equal rights for gay couples — seven of whom had sued for the right to marry — is re-energizing Christian conservatives, who had been losing interest in and passion for politics. Republicans predict that could draw more conservatives to the polls next week, especially in the eight states that will vote on proposed amendments to their state constitutions to ban gay marriage.

The eight states comprise Virginia, Tennessee — coincidentally two states with razor-close Senate races that could decide which party controls the Senate next year — Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, South Carolina, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
