Sen.-elect Scott Brown, Massachusetts Republican, said Sunday that he opposes federal funding for abortions but thinks women should have the right to choose whether to have one.

Mr. Brown told ABC’s “This Week” that he disagrees with his party’s position that the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion should be overturned.

Mr. Brown said the abortion question is one that’s best handled by a woman, her family and her doctor. He also said more effort needs to go into reducing the number of abortions in the United States.

Mr. Brown has said the GOP shouldn’t take his vote for granted on every issue. He said he’s fiscally conservative but more moderate on social issues.

Mr. Brown recently won the Senate seat long held by liberal Democrat Edward M. Kennedy, who died last summer.
