McCain Picks Palin as VP Running Mate

29 08 2008

All the news organizations are reporting that Senator John McCain has picked Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. This is excellent news from a pro-life perspective. Life News has more on her strong pro-life stance.

She is strongly pro-life and was a member of Feminists for Life of America, a leading pro-woman, pro-life organization that has championed reducing abortions by helping pregnant and parenting students with financial and other resources.

As reported in April, Palin put those pro-life views into practice.

As many as 80 percent of unborn children diagnosed with Down syndrome become victims of abortion, but Palin didn’t let her child become a statistic. Palin, who has deeply-felt pro-life views, gave birth to her fifth child and the baby was diagnosed with the condition.

Palin confirmed her baby, named Trig Paxson, has Down syndrome.

“Trig is beautiful and already adored by us,” Palin told at the time.

“We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives,” she said.

‘We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed,” the governor added.


Voters Don’t Know Candidates’ Stances on Abortion

15 07 2008 is reporting that a new poll shows that half of voters don’t know that Senator John McCain is pro-life or that Senator Barack Obama is pro-abortion.

The survey shows that, when pro-life voters know that information, they support McCain by a three-to-one margin.

A stunning 38 percent of voters don’t know where either Obama or McCain stand on the issue of abortion. Some ten percent wrongly identify Obama as pro-life and 17 percent think McCain supports abortion.
