John McCain's Tragic Pro-Abortion Record


ARTLA Presidential Scorecard

McCain Rejects the Right To Life of the Unborn: John McCain has funded the killing of 300,000 children by surgical abortion. And just as Germany had no right to determine that innocent Jews could by killed, neither do U.S. states have the right to determine that innocent babies can be killed. Yet John McCain rejects that an unborn child has the right to life:

-by approving of the abortion of an unwanted child if his father is a rapist;

-by his career-long refusal to vote for Human Life Amendments;

-by funding the killing of the tiniest boys and girls in embryonic research; and

-by promising to nominate justices, like Antonin Scalia, who promote the "states' right" to kill unborn children.

And he has authorized funding to surgically abort hundreds of thousands of children...

James Dobson Violates Pledge Made Invoking God

Colorado Springs, CO - American RTL Action, the political 527 group, is exposing Focus on the Family's Dr. James Dobson for violating his public pledge in which he invoked the name of God. Dr. Dobson violated his pledge by declaring that he is voting for John McCain. ARTL members will protest Dr. Dobson at his headquarters in Colorado Springs on Thursday, September 4.

On April 28, 1990 at the Washington D.C. Rally for Life on video and to hundreds of thousands of Christians, Dr. Dobson stated, "I want to give a pledge to you on a political level... I have determined that for the rest of my life, however long God lets me live on this earth, I will never cast one vote for any man or woman who would kill one innocent baby." (See pledge video below.) James Dobson has endorsed John McCain for president, a Republican who has recently voted to authorize funding to kill some children by surgical abortion.

American RTL Action calls upon Jim Daly, the president of Focus, to take down the video of Dr. Dobson's pledge which still plays for visitors at their Welcome Center. Dr. Dobson has broken the public oath which he repeated over a period of years including on his Focus on the Family radio program...

Romney Exit to Transform Pro-life Endorsements

‘Old Guard’ Leaders’ Candidates Fail

For Immediate Release: February 7, 2008

"National Right To Life had endorsed two candidates, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson," said Steve Curtis, president of the alternative American Right To Life Action. "Thompson, who opposes a human life amendment, withdrew on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and Romney withdrew on the opening day of CPAC" (Conservative Political Action Conference). "The partisan, old guard pro-life leaders like Paul Weyrich, Bob Jones, National RTL’s political architect James Bopp, and Jay Sekulow, all of whom endorsed pro-abortion Romney," said Curtis, "are thankfully losing their influence among those committed to pro-family issues."

The American RTL Action website states: "The Rev. Jerry Falwell has gone to be with the Lord, and his Moral Majority is deceased. The beloved D. James Kennedy has passed away, as did his Center for Reclaiming America. The Christian Coalition is long dead, and its founder Pat Robertson, who defended China’s forced abortion on CNN and endorsed pro-abortion Rudi Giuliani, is also dead though not physically but morally. Billy Graham at his last crusade and under no duress said positively that Hillary Clinton could run the country, and his own Christian Workers Handbook stated in 2001 that 'sincere Christians' may justify abortion when 'the unborn child has severe abnormalities' and in the 1997 edition: 'We should accept abortion in these cases: rape or incest…' This lie is the perverse foundation of the abortion industry and violates God’s direct command to never punish a child for his father’s crime (Ezekiel 18:20)." continues: “Focus on the Family’s Dr. James Dobson made a pledge to God which prohibits him from supporting the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, saying, ‘for the rest of my life, however long God lets me live on this earth, I will never cast one vote for any man or woman who would kill one innocent baby.’ Ann Coulter described the aggressively pro-abortion Romney as “manifestly the best candidate” and instead of correcting the obvious campaign deceit, she mouthed the candidate’s own sound bite, that ‘Romney governed as a pro-lifer.’ That is a provable lie. By Romney’s own signature written in 2006, two years after his politically-calculated 'pro-life' conversion, he allocated tax dollars to murder unborn children in Massachusetts by 'elective' abortions."
