Are You Asleep is right.

Goofballs like Sarandon & Nancy Pelosi and John Kerry & Teddy Kennedy, etc... claim to be Catholic but are all pro-death abortionists.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Advocating for the continuation of de-criminalized abortion is not the same as advocating for abortion. There's a HUGE difference.

What McCain and Palin advocate for is the re-criminalization of abortion.

Being pro-life also means being anti death penalty too, something which the Catholic Church is very consistent on: all life is sacred. Don't be fooled: McCain and Palin are NOT pro-life.
