From the Tennessee GOP:

LAST NIGHT, ON HANNITY & COLMES, CONGRESSMAN FORD SAID HE WAS NEVER “PRO-CHOICE.” YET, DURING HIS FIRST RUN FOR OFFICE, CONGRESSMAN FORD CALLED HIMSELF “PRO-CHOICE.”

Congressman Ford: “No, No. I Was Not Pro-Choice At One Time.” (Fox News’ “Hannity & Colmes,”” 11/1/06)

There is, of course, too his voting record.
