"Anyone who does not think that babies have a right to life, does not deserve your vote."
During his meeting with Catholic leaders last Friday, Sen. McCain reminded Philadelphia Catholics of his pro-life voting record and emphasized that he would maintain that commitment if elected president.
Deal Hudson, one of the leaders present at the meeting, informed CNA that when it came to McCain vetoing FOCA, Nobody asked him that question. My view is that, of course, he would veto it.”
Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life agreed with Hudson, saying, I have no doubt that he would veto it.
Moreover, its so extreme, I really dont think it would ever reach his desk, even if the Democrats increased their numbers in Congress, Fr. Pavone said.
Barack Obama has made his position on FOCA clear by promising at a July 17, 2007 speech to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund that signing it into law would be his first act as president.
