Candidates FYI

Here is a brief look at the 2008 Presidential candidates and their views on abortion.

John McCain–

  • Consistent pro-life voting record
  • Supports his party platform which promotes a constitutional personhood amendment
  • Believes Roe v. Wade should be overturned and the decision given to individual states
  • Endorsed by pro-life organizations such as National Right to Life
  • “I am strongly pro-life and fully support the reversal of Roe v. Wade.”

Barack Obama–

  • Spoke out against a bill in the IL legislature that would protect a child who lives through an abortion and is born alive.  (In essence, he thinks that surviving an abortion is a crime punishable by death!)
  • Consistent pro-abortion voting record; NARAL gave him a 100% ratingin in 2005, 2006 and 2007
  • Declared that the first thing he would do as President is to sign the Freedom of Choice Act into law; this would overturn every single pro-life state measure enacted (Apparently, Obama is not a big fan of the 10th amendment!)
  • Promised to only nominate judges who pledge to keep abortion legal
  • Endorsed by pro-abortion organizations such as NARAL and Planned Parenthood
  • “I’ve got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old…if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.”
