Abortion is not an “unpleasant procedure,” for the baby, Sen. McCain. It’s death.
Nate Madden, writing for Conservative Review exposes John McCain’s squishy position on the fundamental matter of life in his commentary, “McCain Challenger Hits Back at Pro-Life Group for Endorsing Incumbent.”
Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator, mother and physician — who is adamantly pro-life — is challenging the decades-long incumbent McCain, running for another 6-year term at age 80. Ward rightly questions the National Right to Life endorsement given to McCain despite his dubious record.
In 2010 Seeing Red AZ posted, “McCain refuses to answer pro-life questionnaire.” In 2007, John McCain called for returning to a Republican Party Platform which did not include the pro-life plank.
Listen closely as McCain, summoning up the weakest of adjectives to describe the gruesome death of a pre-born human baby, refers to abortion an “unpleasant procedure.”
“But we all know, and it’s obvious, that if we repeal Roe v. Wade tomorrow, thousands of young American women will be performing illegal and dangerous operations. I want us to be a party of inclusion. I think that we can all be members of the Republican Party whether we are pro-choice or pro-life because we share the same goal, and that is the elimination of abortion, because it’s an unpleasant and terrible procedure. We think, I think, that we must go back to the Platform of 1980 and 1984 and we include people who have this specific disagreement who share our same goals.”
Do these equivocating words sound like those of a candidate who is deserving of the National Right to Life endorsement? Give NRTL a call and ask them what they were thinking.
This is Dr. Kelli Ward. It’s time for a change.
