McCain At Guadalupe

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: To make it clear, 'The Catholic Knight' does not endorse any political candidate in the running anymore. That being said, this is interesting news which I believe is worth reporting...

John McCain claims a pro-life voting record, and that would be true to a certain extent.

In this procedure, human embryos (unborn babies) are cloned and "harvested" for their stem-cells. They are essentially created for the sole purpose of killing - conceived to die. John McCain supports this, but to be fair, Barack Hussein Obama supports it too, and much much more. Obama supports abortion on demand, even to the ninth month of pregnancy.
