The head of a national organization that backs female Democratic candidates who support abortion rights nearly had to shout today to make her comments heard over abortion opponents.
Ellen Malcolm of Washington-based EMILY's List spoke at a rally for Governor Granholm.
She said Republican candidate Dick DeVos opposes abortion except to save a pregnant woman's life and praised Granholm for supporting abortion rights.
Around 30 abortion opponents held up signs and chanted slogans such as "abortion hurts women" during the hour-long rally.
One critic, Monica Migliorino Miller, says Granholm should be ashamed as a Catholic to support abortion.
Granholm personally opposes abortion but has vetoed bills such as one that would have ended a late-term abortion procedure.
