McCain receives endorsement of pro-life advocate couple

.- Austin and Cathy Ruse, who are known for their pro-life advocacy, announced their support for presidential candidate John McCain today.

In a statement explaining their reasons for backing McCain, Mr. and Mrs. Ruse said:
“Among the chief crises we face as a nation are Islamic terrorism and the tragedy of unlimited abortion imposed by Roe v. Wade.  John McCain’s character, courage, record, and life experience make him the best candidate of either party to meet today’s challenges.” 

The Catholic leaders also cited John McCain’s “true grit”, which they said is “something the nation needs now more than ever”. His grit, according to the statement, is shown by his campaign for president and the way he has lived his life.

Along with their endorsement, the Ruses also announced that they are “proud to join the National Steering Committee of Catholics for McCain”.
Cathy Ruse is the former spokesperson for the U.S. Catholic bishops on human life issues and has also served as the Chief Counsel to the Constitution Subcommittee in the House of Representatives. During her time as chief counsel, she handled civil rights and human rights issues, as well as religious freedom and free speech.
Austin Ruse is also active in pro-life issues and has experience working with the government. He is currently the president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) and has briefed members of the U.S. House and Senate on U.N. matters, as well as briefing White House and National Security Council staff.
