'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.

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Inventor of mRNA Vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD: "'Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò is calling for the creation of an Anti-Globalist Alliance 'under the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the only King and Savior,' to fight back against the establishment of the New World Order'"

T his is what the inventor of mRNA vaccines, Robert W. Malone MD himself, reported about the vaccines: Robert W Malone, MD @RWMaloneMD "We conclude that the mRNA vacs dramatically increase inflammation on the endothelium and T cell infiltration of cardiac muscle and may account for the observations of increased thrombosis, cardiomyopathy, and other vascular events following vaccination."
