* McCain opposes a woman’s right to choose

Posted by Lew Weinstein on September 18, 2008

Liz Sidoti of AP writes today …

  • John McCain is an abortion rights opponent with a conservative Senate record on the issue.

(LMW: John McCain has consistently voted against ALL women’s health issues.)

  • McCain opposes abortion rights except when the life of the mother is in danger and, unlike Palin, in cases of rape or incest.
  • Barack Obama supports a woman’s right to choose.
  • Obama is calling out McCain in ads that say the GOP nominee takes an “extreme position on choice” and “will make abortion illegal.”

 

LMW COMMENT:

John McCain has said that Roe v Wade should be overturned. He would appoint Supreme Court Justices who would do that.

Imagine what a return to the “back alley” abortions that preceded Roe v Wade would mean to many American women; they would be maimed and they would die.

Nobody favors abortion. Favoring a woman’s right to choose is not the same as promoting abortion.

We should do everything possible to prevent unwanted pregnancies, including programs of sex education and birth control that McCain-Palin oppose, consistent with the beliefs of their Christian fundamentalist supporters.
