Pro-Choice Activists To Protest Ernie Boch Jr.'s Donald Trump Fundraiser

NORWOOD (CBS/AP) — Pro-choice activists are planning to protest outside a private fundraiser in Massachusetts for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts says it will bring more than 70 protesters to the Friday evening event at the Norwood estate of car dealership owner Ernie Boch Jr.

Christian Miron, the group's political director, says Trump's "outrageous anti-woman views" are "far out of step" with Massachusetts values.

The real estate developer and television personality has also been accused of calling women he dislikes "fat pigs," ''slobs" and "disgusting animals." And following a recent television debate, he vigorously criticized Fox News' Megyn Kelly for treating him too harshly.

Boch expects more than 1,000 people to attend the $100 per person fundraiser, which will feature New England fare.
