S.C. Voters Weigh Giuliani's Stance on Abortion

Coming out of the first Republican presidential debate two weeks ago in California, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani was on the defensive over his conflicting, even confusing, message about abortion.

In the second debate, Giuliani was clearer and more direct. It also gave him a chance to brandish his homeland security credentials. NPR's Mara Liasson spoke to people at a Giuliani town hall meeting in South Carolina to see how security concerns influence conservative voters when compared to abortion policy.
