SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. (AP) — Gov. James E. McGreevey, a Catholic who supports abortion rights, moved his first public town hall meeting from a Catholic university after abortion opponents objected to his plans.

McGreevey said the meeting scheduled Tuesday at Seton Hall University would instead be held at Montclair State University.

Abortion opponents were angered not only because McGreevey was going to have the town hall meeting at the school, but also because it was scheduled on the 29th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court case that legalized abortion.
