Can McCain be Trusted on Abortion?

“Certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe vs. Wade.

Those were comments made by Arizona Senator and GOP Presidential Candidate John McCain on August 19, 2000, during his last run for President. He attempted to clarify his position later by saying he does not personally support abortion and that he would work towards the direction of the overturning of Roe v. Wade. He also made remarks during the 2000 election that supported the “necessary evil” position on abortion. Furthermore, during the 2000 election he criticized “otherwise intelligent people” who choose who to vote for based on abortion.

If Mitt Romney can be criticized for remarks he made 13 years ago, then certainly McCain should receive the same scruitiny for remarks he made 7 years ago. Perhaps the real flip-flopper in the GOP race is not Romney, but McCain.

  1. In a world where 18,000 children die everyday from hunger, it seems silly to judge a politican over an issue like abortion.

  2. in a Country where there are more than 3,000 abortions a day, it seems silly not to take it into account.
