John McCain on Abortion

Every presidential election is one of importance to the daily lives of women and people of color. Recent political events notwithstanding, this fall’s race is no different. As a historian, trust me when I say, these connections are not always so easy to make.

Here, from today’s San Francisco Chronicle, are McCain’s evolving (or devolving) views on the issue of abortion.

“I’d love to see a point where (Roe vs. Wade) is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe vs. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to (undergo) illegal and dangerous operations.” McCain said he would support legislation banning abortions in the third trimester.
Interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, Aug. 20, 1999.

“After a lot of study, a lot of consultation and a lot of prayer, I came up with a position that I believe there should be an exception for rape, incest or the life of a mother…(the issue) is one of the most difficult and agonizing issues that I think all of us face, because of our belief — yours and mine — that life begins at conception.”
Reported in the New York Times, Jan. 22, 2000.

“John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned, and as president he will nominate judges who understand that courts should not be in the business of legislating from the bench.”

  1. McCain is an idiot. He’s older than the McDonald’s Co. and doesn’t have the slightest idea of how to use e-mail. He changes his stance on issues frequently depending on the direction the political wind is blowing. How anyone takes him seriously is a testament to just how deep in the shit our country is.

  2. Mc CAIN remains CAIN.

    Hey USA, hey USA.
    McCain remains a Cain.
    Hey USA,
    what’s your game,
    can anybody play
    the games of Cain.?

    Hey USA, hey USA.
    Oh, what a shame,
    if your President becomes Cain.

    Oh USA, there burns a shameful flame
    in the brain of Cain.
    And tell me who is Abel
    in your bad games.?

    Don’t you see the sign of Cain
    in McCain’s brain.?
    Can’t you see on the forehead of God’s enemy
    the sign of Cain.?

    Hey USA,
    what’s your game,
    can anybody play
    with atombombs.?

    Is it a sign of Abel or of Cain
    your bad mad game
    USA
    you lost long time ago the holy flame
    U-nited S-atanic A-ssociation,
    USA.

    Oh, what a shame
    the american way.

    USA, don’t you know,
    the american way of life
    is not the way of truth and light.

    Greedyness is the line of Cain and his sign.

    THE ONE WHO HATES THE TRUTH IS CURSED USA.
    USA THAT’S THE WRONG WAY
    DAY BY DAY.
