Pawlenty was said to be touting his record as an anti-choice governor.  One can also assume he brought up the huge amounts of money his legislation funneled to anti-choice groups in the state via his “Positive Alternatives” program, a governmental cash cow for religiously-based crisis pregnancy centers.
