1 Three members of the City Council and other community members stood out in front of the Memorial Building last night to support the disability community. SOURCE will have a report later, but the individuals who participated wanted to show that the community values all of its residents, including those with disability.
The stand out was prompted after the chair of the Framingham Democratic Committee suggested women pregnant should get an abortion if the baby would have a birth defect.
Since then the chair has apologized, and the Framingham Democratic Committee has condemned his statements made on their behalf, but the Committee voted down a motion to consider a change in leadership.
