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.

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

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.

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.

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?

I find it quite interesting to see folks praising this as some kind of pro-life championship on John McCain's part, when nothing could be further from the truth.

McCain says this about Obama:

this is a politician who long since left behind any middle ground on the abortion issue

This is the clue, one among many in this carefully crafted nothing of a piece, that John McCain thinks there's "middle ground" on the unalienable rights of the unborn. In truth, there is no "middle ground" on issues of life and death. A PERSON is either allowed to be killed or they're not.

None of this is any surprise, of course, to the careful observer. John McCain has always played footsie with both sides in this.

But, John McCain's true service has always been to the side that continues to allow the deaths of thousands of American children EVERY SINGLE DAY.

The bottom line is that not a single child will be saved by voting for McCain rather than Obama. Not one.

And the true principle that lies at the heart of the issue will be obscured more by McCain than Obama.

Doesn't mean I support Obama. But people need to wake up and quit allowing themselves to be deceived by this crop of consummate liars. And that most certainly includes McCain.

There is a growing consensus in America that we need to overcome narrow partisanship on this issue for both women in need and the unborn.


This is the formula for fifty million more dead American children.

No one is above the law, and no one is beneath its protection.

Oh really, Senator?

How about the children that are at the embryonic stage of their development, the ones you think are just fine to kill?

How about the children who are the product of rape or incest that you think should be killed for the sins of their fathers?

How about the children murdered with the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars YOU gave to Planned Parenthood?

How about the children unfortunate enough to reside in the womb of a mother who lives in a State that falls within your Stephen A. Douglas, Gerald R. Ford, Ron Paul, fake federalist position that State's rights trumps the unalienable right to life?

I thank God I was born. But I wasn't born yesterday.
