WOBURN — Massachusetts Republican Party Chairman Jim Lyons issued the following statement regarding Gov. Charlie Baker’s Christmas Eve veto of legislation that would radically expand the practice of late-term abortions in Massachusetts:

“Gov. Baker correctly recognized that this legislation simply goes too far, and he should be applauded for standing up and saying ‘no’ to the abortion lobby. Gov. Baker’s decision, made the day before millions celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, should send a message to the lawmakers that this legislation has no place in a humane society.”
