'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.

Flashback: Virtue Signaling Francis Trads did to Frank Walker what RINO "Conservatives" are doing, now, to Trump

For Virtue Signaling Banning the Mass Francis Trads is Frank Walker the New Trump?   March 25, 2020 British conservative Daniel Hannan said: "Virtue signaling is competitive. When all your friends are anti-Trump, you have to go further." After President Donald Trump took office the liberal virtue signaling was very competitive with them, calling him every name in the book with death threats as well as 12,000 Tweets for his assassination and the famous Kathy Griffin's beheading Trump photo. After Canon 212 publisher Frank Walker made a headline which he later admitted he made a mistake on it appears that banning the Mass Francis traditionalists decided to join in the liberal-like behavior in a frenzy of virtue signaling against him. The Francis trads like the liberals are very competitive in their virtue signaling. Remember, when all your friends are anti-Walker, you have to go farther. The banning the Mass Francis traditionalists have issued num

"Catholics for Trump" Taylor Marshall has sure Gone Dark on the Subject... Wondering... Whole concept of Bogus Elections (as per Francis) is just a Bridge Too Far

For a guy who headed up a group called "Catholics for Trump," Taylor Marshall has sure gone dark on the subject in recent days.  His "What If Trump Loses?" show features his claim of not giving up, but all he has really said all week is to focus on our own spiritual lives. Nothing wrong with prayer and penance, to be sure! But I can't help wondering whether the whole concept of bogus elections (as per Francis) is just a bridge too far. Important Note : The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge. " THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells rin

  Robert Barnes Retweeted Cerno @Cernovich “They lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us.” - attributed to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, and while the sourcing isn’t confirmed, it’s certainly more accurate today than ever in the USSR.
