Giuliani Supports Public Funding of Abortion

I'd just like to stir up some conversation about Giuliani's statement last week that he supports public funding for abortion. To me it seems he is in an early stage of establishing a pattern of making more liberal statements on his policies then trying to justify them by continually repeating his personal views. In the case last week when said he still supported funding for limited case abortions he followed the comment with,

"I'm in the same position now that I was 12 years ago when I ran for mayor -- which is, personally opposed to abortion, don't like it, hate it, would advise that woman to have an adoption rather than abortion, hope to find the money for it," he said. "But it is your choice, an individual right. You get to make that choice, and I don't think society should be putting you in jail."

Where are his comments about reforming abstinence programs, funding adoption programs, and other alternative methods to counter our more irrisponsible citizens? If he tries to continually validate his more liberal policies with just giving his personal views without including more Republican alternatives as well, he's going to lose support.
