Senator Sam Brownback (R-KS) spoke to NPR News about the issue that McCain must overcome in order to win in November. Abortion is a 'hot-button' issues for most evangelicals, and most are interested in hearing where Senator McCain stands on life and where his passions lie.
Brownback tells NPR's Robert Siegel that he expects McCain to run on the party platform, which allows for no exceptions for abortions. McCain, though, has said he would want to change the stance to allow for exceptions in the cases of rape, incest, and to save the life of the mother. But a group within the party has fought for this platform since 1980 — and it hasn't weakened in nearly 30 years, Brownback says.
With the continued support of Senator Brownback, McCain will win both the all important Catholic vote, as well as the Evangelical vote, as long as McCain can stay on topic on abortion, show to these groups that he is the man to elect the last justice to overturn Roe vs. Wade, and demostrate that his passion to treat America as "her native son" will also include all life, born and unborn, with the protection of the law every unborn American deserves.
