Palin a ‘Natural Choice for Catholics’ Fidelis Urges Catholic Support for Pro-Life, Pro-Marriage Ticket

CHICAGO – John McCain’s decision to pick a pro-family and pro-life running mate will make the McCain-Palin ticket a ‘natural’ for Catholic voters, said Brian Burch, President of Fidelis Political Action.
“A presidential candidate’s first major executive decision is selecting a running mate and John McCain’s unexpected choice of Sarah Palin inspires real confidence that a McCain Administration will be a strong ally in the pro-life and pro-family cause,” said Burch. “Governor Palin is the most pro-life vice presidential candidate ever to run.  We are thrilled with this choice.”

“John McCain and Sarah Palin have matched their public defense of life with their own personal commitment to life,” said Burch.

Burch noted that earlier this year Palin made news with the birth of her fifth child, whom she welcomed into life despite a pre-natal diagnosis that revealed the child had Down Syndrome. The governor made national headlines when she proclaimed: “I’m looking at him right now, and I see perfection. Yeah, he has an extra chromosome. I keep thinking, in our world, what is normal and what is perfect?”

John McCain also matched his 20-year pro-life voting record with his family’s own commitment to life. John and Cindy McCain brought two orphaned girls from Bangladesh to receive medical treatment in the United States. The McCain family adopted one of them, Bridget. McCain’s friend adopted the other girl.

“In both cases, we see true pro-family leaders. They stand up strong for life in the halls of power but also live the message of life in their families,” said Burch.

“The inspired choice of Sarah Palin highlights the radical views of Obama-Biden on life and marriage. Catholic voters couldn’t have a starker contrast this November,’” said Burch.

“Catholics, like most Americans, are cautiously optimistic that the troop surge has calmed Iraq. Catholics will naturally turn their attention to which candidate will stand strong on behalf of families,” said Burch.
“Barack Obama is not that candidate. Barack Obama wants to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. His first act as President has nothing to do with energy or Iraq. He wants to enshrine the right to abortion in federal law by signing the Freedom of Choice Act,” said Burch.
“Barack Obama is so extreme on abortion that he thinks that babies who survive an abortion and are miraculously born alive should be refused food and water and be left to die,” said Burch.
“John McCain, together with Sarah Palin, is a natural choice for Catholics. McCain has a strong pro-life record and he has made a commitment to selecting judges who will respect the Constitution. McCain has even bucked his own party on immigration and torture. We think these positions align John McCain closer to Catholic teaching and we are proud to stand with him as he prepares for a very difficult election ahead,” said Burch.
“The stakes of this election are too large to ignore. Abortion supporters are awaiting the opportunity to eliminate years of progress on pro-life legislation by electing a President who supports abortion. There are six justices on the Supreme Court over the age of 68, and granting President Obama the opportunity to fill possible vacancies would be disastrous.  America needs the experienced leadership of John McCain and Sarah Palin

  1. .. and pro-divorce? (McCain)

    … and pro-speaking in tongue and an evangelical church that’s mostly against the Catholic church? (Palin)

    I don’t think so, pal.

    ps: I’m not Obama supporter either. Just a reminder since every time I make comments about McCain, people think I support Obama.

  2. I worry about Palin’s impetuous emotional behavior. She herself had to get married just as her daughter did. Today, many women have the baby first and then get married, but Palin represented abstinence and wasn’t able to deliver on it. So, to me, that represents a lack of character! Additionally, she was unable to manage a town of 6,000 and had to call in help. She will be easily ruled by more powerful people.

  3. I am sick of catholics talking about the “catholic choice” in politics. It was the same during the G.W.Bush campaigns, when he was almost universally endorsed by catholics in the USA.

    I am a catholic, and I can under no circumstances ever support extremist right wing “christian” politics.
    If you look at the track record of extreme right wing politics, it’s about as anti christian as it can be.
    Bush, who apparently was the choice for catholics, has been one long disaster of war, violations of human rights, for the rich against the poor etc etc. I see no christian values there, just as i see no christian values in Sarah Palin, who will stop at nothing to gain power (her campaign is one long lie). She has ties to extremist militia groups in Alaska, she is anti environment, anti free speech (tried banning books in Wasilla where she was mayor) etc etc.

    It seems that being “pro life” in american politics just cancels out everything else for catholics. Indeed one would think if Hitler came back and ran for president, he would be endoresed by american catholics as long as he overturned Roe vs Wade.

    It’s irresponsible, it’s hypocrisy and it’s NOT christian!

  4. Abigail,

    There is nothing extreme about Catholics defending the right to life. We have been doing so from the apostolic age onward, and will continue to do so until this grave evil is abolished–despite the outcome of any election.

    As for talking to me about the travesty of war, violations of human rights, for the rich against the poor etc etc. they do not compare in horror to the 53 million people killed in the wombs of there own mothers in this country, nor the Tens of Millions of the same each year denied life throughout the world. (A travesty that can be placed at America’s doorstep do to our support)

    It is not possible to promote peace in the world while at the same time promoting the death of the innocent unborn–which the Democratic Party and Barack Obama are guilty of perpetuating.

    Speaking of Nazi’s–I suggest this article Abigail so that you have a better handle on the evil we presently face…

    Strengthen what remains,
    james mary evans
