Abortion clearly a 'difficult issue' for Alabama Democrats as Doug Jones pushes pro-choice stance


After Josh Crowley listened to Doug Jones' interview with NBC's Chuck Todd late last month, he took to Facebook and urged his friends to ignore the Senate hopeful's pro-choice stance on abortion."Too many Christians look at just the issue of abortion in making their political decisions, but there is so much more that has the potential for legislation at the national level," said Crowley, 27, a University of South Alabama student who describes himself as pro-life, and a Jones supporter. "I think it's obvious that the abortion issue can really get in the way for any liberal candidates."Jones, the Democratic opponent of strongly conservative Roy Moore in the Dec. 12 Senate election, raised some eyebrows among political observers in Alabama and elsewhere after he said during the Todd interview that he would not support legislation to ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
