THE BASICS: Nora Caplan-Bricker of Slate reports that Tim Kaine's pro-life voting record as governor reveals he is anti-abortion, whereas Karen Fratti of The Frisky argues it's hard to know whether Kaine is really anti-abortion since he has a pro-choice voting record as governor. However, Mary Elizabeth Williams of Salon believes Kaine's views are entitled to evolve, and argues that they have since he praised the Supreme Court's recent strike down of Texas' draconian abortion restrictions as "a major win for women and families across the country, as well as the fight to expand reproductive freedom for all."
