McCain wants a constitutional ban on abortion
John McCain now says he supports a constitutional amendment banning abortion.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me ask one question about abortion. Then I want to turn to Iraq. You're for a constitutional amendment banning abortion, with some exceptions for life and rape and incest.
MCCAIN: Rape, incest and the life of the mother. Yes. [ABC]
McCain used to say that Roe should be overturned and the issue of abortion "returned to the states"--which would be functionally equivalent to an abortion ban for most women. Now he says he favors a South Dakota-style abortion ban for the entire country.
John McCain is not principled and not moderate. He's a power-grubbing old man who sees his last chance to be president slipping away.
