Senator John McCain has an exemplary voting record against abortion. He has cast 31 pro-life votes since 1997. This includes voting for a bill that would prevent minor daughters from being taken across state lines for secret abortions without parental notice or consent, voting against taxpayer funding for abortion, and voting for a ban on the brutal partial-birth abortion procedure. He voted to confirm Justices Alito and Roberts. He has also voted against endorsing Roe v. Wade and believes it should be overturned. National Right to Life is very grateful for Senator McCain's pro-life votes.
In contrast, the Democratic nominee, Senator Barack Obama, has an extreme position and voting record in favor of abortion on demand. He strongly supports the appointment of only U.S. Supreme Court Justices who support abortion on demand.
During the next presidency, one to three U.S. Supreme Court justices may retire, which will determine the direction of the Court for generations to come.
Senator Obama is a co-sponsor of the so-called "Freedom of Choice Act", a bill that would make partial-birth abortion legal again, it would require taxpayer funding of abortion, and would strike down all current limitations on abortion such as parental notification laws.
Senator Obama even voted three times against a bill in the Illinois State Senate that would have provided protection for babies who survive abortions equal to protection received by babies who are spontaneously born prematurely.
I am so glad the birth families of Philip, Thomas, and Sarah did not choose abortion! I know that people have unplanned pregnancies. Still, I believe that all life has worth. I'm a strong believer in adoption not abortion! We should give more money to health care, support single mothers who want to keep their children, and make adoption more acceptable. Who are we to say one life is valuable and another should be killed? All life has value. Abortion is barbaric! Why is it noble to fight for babies that are born premature at say 20 weeks, and legal to kill babies at 20 weeks? I'm sorry but people are selfish and they want the right to kill! But if the church is not willing to adopt the children that are not wanted by their birth families, they lose the authority to speak on this issue. The church needs to be more active on adoption! They also need to demonstrate more compassion and practical help to single mothers.
