John McCain is NOT necessarily pro-life

McCain is not necessarily pro-life

Let me start by stating that I still strongly endorse McCain, even on the abortion issue.

However, like a lot of you, I feel that the pro-life issue has been hijacked by the GOP inasmuch as has become a partisan issue. The issue used to be one of conscience that was beyond party loyalty. But in the last 30 years, the sanctity of life has taken a back seat because voters look at it in terms of political party rather than conscience. You can read an explanation of why abortion is murder here.

Judge Andrew Napolitano has one of the best takes on the abortion issue in regards to the candidates.

As a Christian, this is one of those issues in which I have had a problem with McCain. Yes, his voting record is politically pro-life and yet he would still allow abortion to be legal where some states rule it legal. This would encourage interstate travel and more deception by those seeking abortions.

But as a political conservative, I agree with him that, constitutionally, the federal government should not be involved in the issue. And McCain has promised to nominate SCOTUS judges that will interpret the constitution as it was intended. That is why he is the better candidate on this issue.

Despite Barack Obama’s mantra to reduce abortions, he will nominate judges that will follow the DNC’s platform to unswervingly uphold Roe v. Wade. This would make abortions “safe and legal.”

Sarah Palin is absolutely pro-life and will promote a legal end to abortions nationwide based on her Christian faith.

Joe Biden is simply a conniving coward when it comes to practicing his faith in terms of applying it to the abortion issue.

Now, I strongly believe that National Security is the main reason to vote McCain-Palin. If Obama is elected, our nation faces a physical and social invasion where Islamic law would become a standard. If that happens, abortions will be controlled by the government and there will NOT be ANY choice.

In conclusion, even though neither candidate would effectively put an end to abortion altogether, McCain is the candidate who would promulgate a stronger start to protecting the sanctity of life.
