This speech today guarantees that McCain will choose a pro-life Vice President, most likely Mitt Romney, who is also an excellent debater and match for Joe Biden.

I JUST posted on the Biden thread my worries over this...that McCain has been excellent on attacking Barry on every issue but abortion. I must learn to be patient. Still I pray he'll make a pro-life VP choice. ;)

This speech today guarantees that McCain will choose a pro-life Vice President, definitely not a pro-abortionist like Mitt Romney,

If McCain chose RINO Romney after the forum and that speech this morning,

he would be a laughing stock with the Dems...

The Dems would have a field day...

and pro-lifers/conservatives would not trust him again...

Mccain’s VP better have spotless pro-life credentials...

The door is wide open for McCain to pick a woman.
There is no need for him to go even further to the right on abortion as Obama has taken off the left of the chart

I do not recall any other Republican nominee (Reagan, Bush 41, Dole, Bush 43) making abortion a major issue in a Presidential campaign. Sure, they supported pro-life, but no one ever really attacked the Democrats hard on the issue.

This is a big first for McCain, and I think to his credit.

To his new running mate, my congratulations and I’ll get back to you real soon on your debating opponent.

Is there any possible way it could be Dick Cheney?

At 5:33 PM CDST yesterday evening, I became a Grandpa for the first time. One by one, the family was taken in to see our new grandson. As I looked at him with tears of joy in my eyes, I suddenly thought about all the babies that would never see this same moment and how important it is that we have a leader who understands that abortion is the taking of a human life. Sen. McCain KNOWS this and must appoint a pro-life VP.

Dick Cheney would be a strong VP choice for McCain, and would “lock-in” Wyoming and possibly even Montana for the Republican ticket. /s

Nana, I think the most 'spotless' pro-life Republican on the short list is Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska. She is also 'spotless' on gun control and drilling. And since Barry picked an 'old white guy' maybe McCain choosing a woman could bring in the disgruntled Hillary voters. McCain/Palin...REAL HOPE; REAL CHANGE!

It will be either Palin or Cantor IF mccain believes ProLife is #1 issue for conservatives.

However, Romney remains the fav if mccain believes the economy is primary issue. Romney is also anti-amnesty.

McCain no doubt is a scapper...a fighter. He’s not giving one inch. It’s like one of the credos of our military...
“There’s no thing as a fair fight.” YOu play to win, you hit your openent hard.

Welcome to the big league, Obama. I guess you had no clue what YOU were up against....

Now all Mac has to do is pick a fabulous VP running mate, and then November won’t come fast enough..

McCain is Pro-Life. This is not a surprise. McCain must choose a Pro-Life running mate that never voted to increase abortions ever. That leaves out Romney so who will it be? We don’t need any blurring of the lines. We need a conservative that didn’t discover principles in his fifties.

Congratulations, teletech!

On another thread, a poster pointed out the following:

"We have Christians of every stripe, Catholic and protestant (Methodists, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Evangelical etc.) who consistently vote for pro-abortion politicians."

The following are my observations:

1) Perhaps they do not believe Psalm 139.

2) Perhaps they do not see that their own liberties, as individual citizens, are placed at risk when the liberty of the child in the womb to live is denied by force.

3) Perhaps they do not really think about the implications of the absurdity that one class of citizens (women) are legally protected in a so-called "right" to choose whether another human being lives or dies by the "hand of force."

4) Perhaps they never considered that the claim of the phrase, "endowed by their Creator," in the Founders' Declaration of Independence actually formed the founding principle underlying our Constitution's protections. That principle was succinctly capsulized by Thomas Jefferson: "The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time: the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them."

What clearer statement can be made on behalf of human liberty?

As late as 196l, John F. Kennedy summed up the same principle:

"The world is different now . . . And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forefathers fought are still at issue around the globe--the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God."

The "life" question for this election should be framed in such a manner that citizens can understand that our heritage of liberty has its basis in that very question, and that the "hand of force" may not necessarily be a totalitarian government's army, or even a terrorist attack.

I’d bet you’d find a huge majority of folks that grew up, especially young males, with a “pro-choice” (anti-responsibility) mindset,

and then changed when they grew up to be men.

McCain is not the only person who has a problem with Obama's stand on abortion. In my opinion, this issue, will shift the course of McCain's campaign. It will also cause a majority of Americans to vote for McCain.

Maelstorm wrote that Romney's change of heart would make him a weaker VP candidate. Perhaps so, if it's just left at that!

On the other hand, if he can articulate well the process by which he rethought the "pro-choice" position and decided in favor of life, then he might be the very strongest candidate of all.

Consider the potential effectiveness of a former smoker who speaks out about the dangers of smoking, based on his/her own experience, versus that of a lifetime non-smoker who may simply come off as a "do-gooder."

Were Romney the candidate, he needs to articulate a vision of life and liberty as being so entertwined that when the life of one innocent is left to "choice," then the life and liberty of each is endangered. After all, who's to say that the next class of citizens allowed the so-called "right to choose" might be the man or woman who finds the care of an elderly parent to be endangering to his/her health or happiness?

My gut tells me that Romney was always pro-life. He just said he was pro-choice to be elected Governor of Massachusetts.

You may have trouble with that, but it doesn’t bother me at all. He did some good for the state of Massachusetts, and he would not have been able to win there otherwise.

No, Reagan wasn't a flip-flopper on abortion. That's a widely-believed myth perpetuated by the media, the Dems, and some pro-abortion Republicans. As governor of California, Reagan signed a proposal known as the Beilenson Bill (named after its sponsor in the legislature). At the time, abortion was only legal in California if the life of the mother was in danger. Beilenson claimed there were a few cases per year (as in, one or two) where women bled so badly from problem pregnancies that their health was seriously jeopardized, but their lives weren't literally in danger. He thus pushed through a bill to allow abortions when the woman's health was in danger.

The legislature passed the bill after being assured it would allow a tiny number of rare abortions in legitimate health cases. Even so, Reagan hesitated to sign the bill, but his staff assured him the bill would only allow rare additional abortions, and only in cases where there was a real tragic medical situation. So Reagan signed the bill.

Unfortunately, it was only a year or two later that the courts began moving to the left on abortion (as they are now doing on same-sex “marriage”), searching for any technicality to mandate abortion-on-demand. They took the law Reagan had signed, which permitted abortions for health reasons, and “interpreted” health as meaning everything from a headache to “distress” at being pregnant. Their “interpretation” had the effect of sanctioning abortion-on-demand, something Reagan deeply regretted.

In later years, the media, Dems, and other liberals would sneeringly and falsely accuse Reagan of being an abortion flip-flopper, by asserting that as California governor he had “signed the nation's most liberal abortion law.” They left out that the law was never intended to be liberal at all. Romney, in contrast, has been a true flip-flopper on abortion.
