The San Fernando Valley/northeast Los Angeles branch of the National Organization for Women has endorsed the recall of state Sen. David A. Roberti, citing his record on abortion.
"There are many reasons we dislike him, primarily his anti-choice stand," said Linda McCabe, the chapter's coordinator.
While the members of NOW have mixed feelings about gun control--the central issue in the Roberti recall campaign--they are strongly pro-choice. NOW believes that the Van Nuys Democrat's record shows him to be an opponent of abortion, even though he claims to be a moderate.
Although the chapter has endorsed the Roberti recall campaign, NOW has refused to support any of the candidates vying to replace him for the remainder of his term, McCabe said.
