'Republicans for Choice' Endorses McCain

'Republicans for Choice' Endorses McCain

(CNSNews.com) - The Republicans for Choice Political Action Committee has endorsed John McCain (R-Ariz.), saying he is the best candidate now that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is out of the presidential race.

The Republicans for Choice PAC supports Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, and also wants the Human Life Amendment removed from the plank of the Republican Party.

Republicans for Choice founder and Chairwoman Ann E.W. Stone told Cybercast News Service that McCain's pro-life position wasn't an issue.

"(McCain) is (pro-life), but it's not at the top of his agenda, not like Huckabee or the born-again Romney," Stone said. "He's shown his willingness to reach across the party, and we look forward to those discussions."

Another Republican pro-abortion group, however, has not endorsed McCain or any other Republican presidential candidate.

"We only endorse pro-choice Republicans," Jennifer Stockman, co-chairwoman of the Republican Majority for Choice, told Cybercast News Service, adding that her organization felt it was too soon to endorse Rudy Giuliani, who left the race after placing a distant third behind McCain and Mitt Romney in the Florida primary.

Stockman said that in a campaign where candidates are vying for the title of "true conservative," nods by pro-abortion groups might not even be welcomed.

"Our endorsement, quite frankly, wouldn't help anyone in the primary," Stockman said.

Colleen Parro, executive director of the Republican National Coalition for Life, said the endorsement should make some Republicans uncomfortable.

"My first thought was how embarrassing for the pro-lifers who have signed on for McCain," Parro said.

Another pro-life group, Democrats for Life of America, said they can't find a candidate to endorse.

"None of the candidates fit our criteria," Kristen Day, executive director of DFLA, told Cybercast News Service. "If we were to endorse Obama or Clinton, it would ruin our credibility.

"We are focused on the pro-life Democrats who are running for Congress, the U.S. Senate and in local races across the country."

The DLFA did not endorse Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) in the 2004 election.

Might Biden be a Liar & Predator like McCarrick?

September 15, 2020   Everyone knows that sexual predator ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick is a liar. His whole life was a lie of betrayal of the most sacred vows he took and the violation of the moral tenets of the Catholic faith which he desecrated. Most people don't realize that part of this desecration of lies included lying for "gravely sinful" Democrats like Joe Biden. McCarrick protected Biden when then head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later to be Pope Benedict XVI) wrote that bishops were not to admit to Communion politicians like "gravely sinful" Biden who supports the killing of unborn babies. McCarrick lied for politicians like Biden by ignoring the important parts of the Ratzinger letter and told bishops not to ignore the Catholic Church law.  Last year, Fr. Robert Morey denied Holy Communion to the “gravely sinful” Biden following a "2004 decree signed jointly by the bishops of
