"ABSTAIN from McCAIN" - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort. — LiveJournal
One person's lack of comprehension does not equal another's consent.
In the name of Reproductive Rights, that is going to be my new motto between now and the next presidential election, or at least the presidential primaries.

In case you have not heard, world champion waffler, John McCain was is quoted in the February 19th, 2007 interview in "USA Today" as saying "I do not support Roe versus Wade. It should be overturned..." and then proceeded to an abstinence-only event later that day.

I know lots of people who consider John McCain to be among the most palatable of Republican candidates, however being Pro-Choice as I am, I cannot condone any candidate who wishes to curtail reproductive rights and I will do all I can to expose this otherwise likable Republican candidate to any who might imagine he could be Pro-Choice

It isn't that I actually believe that any Republican candidates will be Pro-Choice, but I feel it is important to clarify where even the nicest ones stand well before an election.

If you are pro-choice and Republican, you may wish to reconsider your party. Regardless of your party, you should probably make sure your friends know what is at stake.

If you look at his voting record and explicit statements, he has been very consistently conservative including anti-choice. How this man has been so successful as portraying himself as a moderate and as a maverick is beyond me. I'm glad that it's starting to become more clear to more people that the man is just toxic.

I went digging into his record after he cozied up to Bush (which lost all my respect, after Bush smeared him in the GOP primaries in 2000) and found that. His voting record alone speaks volumes and in the end, it's what he votes on and not what he says that affects this country, so...phthp on McCain.
