Pro-life Republicans: McCain seriously considering pro-choice VP

.- The Republican National Coalition for Life is calling on voters to contact the McCain Campaign to encourage them to select a pro-life vice-presidential candidate.

Executive Director Republican National Coalition for Life Colleen Parro explains, “Informed sources tell us that top-level officials in the McCain campaign have been calling certain state Party chairmen to find out what they think the reaction of Republican voters would be in the event that John McCain chooses a pro-abortion-choice running mate.”

She continues, “Why would they do that, unless McCain is seriously considering someone like Pennsylvania’s Tom Ridge, or even a liberal Democrat like Joe Lieberman?”

She recalls that Sen. McCain declared at the Saddleback Forum that he “will be a pro-life President and this presidency will have pro-life policies.  That’s my commitment.”

Parro points out that because “he has made that commitment, the expectation on the part of many pro-life and pro-family conservatives is that John McCain, if elected President, would nominate pro-life judges to the federal courts and the Supreme Court, would be totally dashed if he chooses a running mate who is not pro-life.”

“It is our position that a VP nominee who is not pro-life is unacceptable. It would be a slap in the face to the base of the Party and would most likely cost McCain and the Republican Party, the election.”

The Republican Coalition for Life is encouraging voters to contact the McCain campaign to make their views known:
