Many conservatives found a letter from National Pro-Life Alliance in their mailboxes Monday. It specifically calls out AZ Sen. John McCain for repeatedly blocking pro-life initiatives. The letter, signed by Jenni Harris, the group’s executive director, cuts right to the chase. She explains that the Life at Conception Act which would legislatively bypass Roe v. Wade by using the Supreme Court’s own language against itself, now has a record 164 co-sponsors in both the U.S. House and Senate — including four of the five Republican Congressmen from Arizona. Harris says, “As I write this letter, John McCain is not among them, despite multiple meetings and calls to his staff.”
The letter further states, “In fact, Sen. McCain is the only candidate in the Senate Republican Primary who has not answered the Republican candidate survey.”
McCain’s deception on life issues is nothing new. May 15, 2016 Seeing Red AZ posted “Dr. Kelli Ward vs. McCain on life issues,” which includes a illuminating video displaying McCain’s bizarre view of the pro-life movement, in which he refers to the ending of a perfect and healthy pre-born human life as an “unpleasant….procedure,” though he made it clear he didn’t want to restrict them.
Dr. Kelli Ward, a conservative former two-term state senator, military wife, mother of three and a family practice 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 appalling record.
In July 2010 Seeing Red AZ posted, “McCain refuses to answer pro-life questionnaire.” In 2007, John McCain called for returning to the pre-Reagan Republican Party Platform which did not include the pro-life plank.
Hillary Clinton, referred to by John McCain as a ‘rock star he could support,“ and portrayed in the liberal media as a doting grandmother, isn’t ashamed to say that she supports aborting a baby even on its due date. During an appearance on ‘The View,” Hillary did not flinch from her support of the U.S. Supreme Court’s imposed policy of abortion-on-demand for the full nine months of pregnancy enshrined in Roe v. Wade. She was asked: “At what point does someone have constitutional rights, and are you saying that a child, on its due date, just hours before delivery, still has no constitutional rights?” Hillary’s swift reply? “Under our law that is the case. .I support Roe v. Wade.’ (Video)
By his words, actions and associations, John McCain continues to lie by declaring himself pro-life. The facts tell a different story.
Once again McCain expects to lure us all aboard his Forked Tongue Express. Vote for Dr. Kelli Ward and we can put this embarrassing chapter of Arizona history behind us.
