I have heard John McCain say many times before that he believed that Abortion is wrong and that the we should let the states decide it. He said it again tonight.
If the moderator raised the question, why didn’t he follow up with… “Senator McCain, if you believe that Roe V Wade is wrong and flawed, and that the states should decide it, then obviously you want the SCOTUS to overturn it and then turn it back to the states, right sir?”
A huge flip flop…
First, McCain said he thought Roe v. Wade should be overturned and said he would support exceptions to a ban on abortion in cases of rape, incest, and when the mother’s life is in danger.
Then, McCain said, “I’d love to see a point where Roe vs. Wade is irrelevant, and could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe vs. Wade, which would then force women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations.” A spokesman said that McCain “has a 17-year voting record of supporting efforts to overturn Roe vs. Wade. He does that currently, and will continue to do that as president.”
