    Would he ban IVF andThe MAP also? Hell, even the IUD, and some would say the pill. All of which kill can 'babies' (if you listen to the anti's he's begging to vote for him).

    My feeling is...Johnny, You grow yourself a uterus, then we'll have a discussion about this. Until then, MYOFB.

    I've heard McCain comment on Roe v. Wade a number of times and his arguement for overturning it was was always based on the fact that he felt it was an issue best left for the states to regulate - something I don't entirely disagree with.

    He said this stuff back in 2007 - so after seeing this video I went around trying to figure out where he was standing on it now - right from his website:

    Overturning Roe v. Wade

    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.

    Constitutional balance would be restored by the reversal of Roe v. Wade, returning the abortion question to the individual states. The difficult issue of abortion should not be decided by judicial fiat.

    However, the reversal of Roe v. Wade represents only one step in the long path toward ending abortion. Once the question is returned to the states, the fight for life will be one of courage and compassion. As John McCain has publicly noted, "At its core, abortion is a human tragedy. To effect meaningful change, we must engage the debate at a human level."
    I gotta be honest, with that line (that I underlined) he lost my vote.

    I don't have a problem with someone wanting to overturn RoevWade on its constitutional merits, but when you talk about ending a womans right to make decisions concerning her own body, I'm out. Obama '08 ... god help us all.

    I don't understand how any country can function with such a drastic patchwork of laws.

    Fuck McCain. He's pussyfooting around the issue by making it about "states' rights." It's about each and every American WOMAN'S rights, not a state's rights.

    Him flip-flopping on this doesn't change the fact that he doesn't want women to have control of their own bodies. It's just a matter of having the state government rather than the federal government try to control people's wombs.

    Unfortunately Roe vs Wade is a flawed decision....it lacks a constitutional foundation

    It is a right decision, but reached in the wrong way. Many liberal constitutional scholars agree with this.

    Nothing to do with abortion rights (which I fully support)...it upholds the right to privacy....which then was used to cover abortion...

    This is the reason that Roe has been under assault for so long...it was a poor decision, and it has so many holes in it regarding the constitution.

    A better legal decision to grant abortion rights has been needed for a long time.
