WELL, HERE GOES.  IF MCCAIN'S VOTING RECORD AGAINST WOMEN IS NOT ENOUGH TO CONVINCE YOU THAT OBAMA IS THE MOST LEVEL-HEADED PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, THEN THERE'S NOT MUCH ELSE TO SAY:

THE POST BELOW WILL GIVE YOU THE REASONS THAT YOU SHOULD TAKE ACTION AT THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD WEBSITE AGAINST THIS ARCHAIC MCCAIN IDEOLOGY:

Know John McCain

For the past 25 years, Sen. John McCain has voted against women's health on issues ranging from funding for family planning programs to requiring insurance coverage of birth control.

 

Sen. McCain has also opposed all legislation that would help reduce the rate of unintended pregnancies and the need for abortion. This has earned him the lowest rating possible from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. 

Just as alarming, Sen. McCain wants to overturn Roe v. Wade, potentially putting the lives and health of women in jeopardy. Sen. McCain is out of step with America's pro-choice majority: 62 percent of all voters support Roe v. Wade and, by a 20-point margin, voters believe abortion should be legal.

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund recently polled 1,205 women in 16 likely battleground states, finding that

  • Despite his extreme voting record, 51 percent of women voters in battleground states have no idea what John McCain's positions are on women's reproductive health issues.
  • Forty-nine percent of women currently backing McCain express pro-choice views, and 46 percent of women supporting McCain over Obama want to see Roe v. Wade upheld.
  • In a match-up with Barack Obama, 36 percent of pro-choice McCain supporters say they are less likely to vote for McCain when told that he opposes Roe v. Wade.
