Here’s some more news from Obama’s PR wing of his campaign, the Associated Press. Headline is ‘Obama calls out McCain on abortion.’ Does he really want to go there? It is Obama that is in favor of retroactive abortions.
With the current state of technology in stem cell research, there is absolutely no need to use embryonic stem cells any longer. But, abortion being the holy sacrament of the Democrat party’s platform, they continue to cling to embryonic stem cell research.
McCain opposes abortion rights except when the life of the mother is in danger and, unlike Palin, in cases of rape or incest. He has voted for abortion restrictions permissible under Roe v. Wade and has said the 1973 decision that guaranteed abortion rights should be overturned, leaving states to decide. Advisers say he would not seek a constitutional amendment banning abortion, although he has expressed support for such a measure in the past even while saying he doubts one is likely.
Obama does not oppose killing babies born as a result of live-birth abortions. He voted against a bill that would protect ‘the least among us.’ His actions are contrary to his glowing ‘words, just words.’
