Ronald Reagan Signs a Bill Liberalizing California’s Abortion Law

A liberalized abortion law, one of the most emotionally debated issues ever brought before the state legislature, will go-into effect in California within a few months.

Was Ronald Reagan ever pro-choice? Did he champion and sign pro-choice legislation in 1967 when governor of California? Was he "adamantly pro-choice," and outspoken protector of a woman's right to choose?

It has been said that he was, indeed, "adamantly pro-choice." It's quite an accusation, and it is not true. First, if words mean anything, it is a false accusation. According to Merriam-Webster, for one to be adamant, he must be "unshakable or insistent especially in maintaining a position or opinion."
