Look, people, this guy is a bona fide war hero.
Yes, there's always a "but" isn't there, Mr. Monarchist? Yes, there is. I heard the Senator on the Michael Medved show earlier today talking about abortion and being pro-life.
So McCain says that he's a "federalist" on this issue, after a little prodding by Medved, and that should individual states decide in the case of the eventual overturn of Roe vs. Wade to create their own laws on abortion he thinks that's appropriate.
(Big, huge, Al Gore-mocking SIGH)
Let's take it from the top, shall we? Governments are instituted among men to protect our God-given rights. Among the rights given us by our Creator is the right to Life. Government at any and every level should be in the business of protecting the inalienable rights of citizens. To suggest that a state has the right to pass laws endorsing abortion is as patently absurd as suggesting that a state has the right to pass laws endorsing slavery. They don't, for the record. And anyone who tells you so is an utter fool. Well, that's a little harsh. Maybe they just don't dig on the Declaration of Independence, that's all.
That sound you hear is our greatest President, the Old Rail Splitter, rolling over in his grave.
