NRLC officials said pro-life voters should be very concerned about an Obama or Clinton presidency.
"Senator Barack Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton have strong positions and voting records in favor of abortion on demand and strongly support the appointment of only U.S. Supreme Court Justices who favor Roe v. Wade," the pro-life group explained.
Those differences are so significant and will affect so many lives of women and unborn children that NRLC officials told LifeNews.com supporting McCain made perfect sense.
The pro-life group says its political action committee will now work overtime to educate voters about the sharp contrast between McCain and his pro-abortion rivals.
While NRLC and McCain agree on stopping abortions, the Arizona senator has differed with the pro-life group on the issues of embryonic stem cell research and campaign finance reform.
National Right to Life strongly opposes any scientific research that destroys human life and wanted more free speech protections in the campaign finance bill McCain sponsored.
While McCain has voted to support embryonic stem cell research funding, he has recently indicated he is open to alternatives that don't involve the destruction of human life.
His campaign has also indicated he strongly opposes the purposeful creation of human embryos for their destruction and has backed a ban on both forms of human cloning.
I'm glad to read McCain is open to the alternatives of embryo destruction. I'm still a little leery, because of his voting record and support of embryonic stem cell research. I hope he does a 180, and goes against such horrific "research".
