Giuliani Defends Abortion Stance

Columbia, SC (AP) -- Republican Presidential Candidate Rudy Giuliani says he's sticking to his support for abortion rights, even if it means fewer votes.

Giuliani is in South Carolina, where he picked up three endorsements.

Support for abortion rights is unpopular with conservatives who dominate his party in South Carolina, an early voting state. South Carolina lawmakers are pushing a measure that would require women seeking abortions to first view ultrasound images of their fetus.

Giuliani says that's South Carolina's call. He adds that states should also make the decision on whether to use public money for abortions.
