If I were Bill Simon (running for California governor), I'd be all over this issue. California is about to pass a law requiring all California medical schools to require abortion training for ob/gyn residents. [Mercury News story] The press has browbeat Simon into repudiating his former anti-abortion positions, and Gov. Gray Davis is holding on to Democratic support by saying how strongly pro-abortion he is. Simon could be anti-abortion on this issue, and be popular. The people who think that physicians should be forced to do abortions are not the people who are going to vote for Simon anyway.
