McCain stands up for life in DebateJohn McCain clearly showed why he should be elected president tonight by stating clearly and unequivocally that he is pro-life and will appoint jurists who will respect the Constitution and the sanctity of life.
Barack Obama on the other hand embraced his pro-abortion position by stating that he would appoint judges who would keep Roe v. Wade legal under the guise of a right to privacy. Ass he attempted to assuage the public by stating that he opposed partial birth abortion, he then undercut his credibility by demanding that there be a health exception. McCain called him on it and pointed out that the pro-abortionists and the courts use "health" as an excuse for any reason to allow abortion.
Obama tried to soften his extreme position by claiming that his party had adopted new language to offer support for women who choose to have their babies. But McCain countered by saying that while Cindy and he had adopted a child, all children need to be protected and every mother should have an opportunity and the support to go through with the pregnancy.
The differences were clear and Obama was not comfortable trying to explain his votes against the Born Alive Infant Protection Bill in the Illinois Senate. He used a previous argument that it was only a tool to undermine Roe and that the law already existed to protect children in that situation. But the record proves otherwise and on this aspect of the debate, it was all McCain.
