If women take a moment to realize that on every issue important to women, John McCain is not in their corner, that would help them get over it.”Reiterating that sort of, 'only an idiot' perspective.
So how can I be pro-choice and pro-McCain? First, the number of people affected by the 'choice vs. life' issue is relatively small. While I personally feel that this is no place for the government to be imposing its will on the individual; I also recognize that some people like Senator McCain genuinely see this as a human rights issue. One of the things I admire about Senator McCain is his outstanding human rights record. Therefore I can accept that this is a difference of opinion. I don't buy the argument that being pro-life makes them anti-women. I also disagree with Senator McCain on education, but that doesn't make him anti-child. Finally, I have never heard Senator McCain preach morality. He isn't at the far edge of the pro-life movement talking down to women who have made this decision. He's even taken heat from some conservatives for not being divisive enough on this issue.
Issues that trump his pro-life stance for me are experience, his ability to work across the aisle, his coherent and substantive foreign policy, his on going fight against wasteful spending, and his backbone in standing up to people when fighting for what he believes in. So I don't agree with Senator McCain on all the issues including choice, so what? I base my vote on a myriad of issues, and the idea that all a candidate has to do is be pro-choice to win my vote is ridiculous.
