John McCain’s Strong Pro Adoption Stance

In 1993, John McCain and his wife, Cindy, adopted a little girl from Mother Teresa's orphanage in Bangladesh. This child was dying from a number of health complications.
That child is their teenage daughter Bridget.
However they also brought back another little girl as well. She was adopted by one of McCain's aides Wes Gullett.
The McCains have never trumpeted their sacrifices.

As President, John McCain has promised “to seek ways to promote adoption as a first option for women struggling with a crisis pregnancy. In the past, he cosponsored legislation to prohibit discrimination against families with adopted children, to provide adoption education, and to permit tax deductions for qualified adoption expenses, as well as to remove barriers to interracial and inter-ethnic adoptions”.

Barack Obama on the other hand is even more pro-abortion than Bill Clinton. When he was in the state legislature, Obama voted against the Illinois version of the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act and spoke out against it. This would prevent the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. He helped to scuttle the measure.
With Obama no longer in the state Senate, the Born Alive legislation passed in 2005.

Recently he stated that he would not want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" because of a crisis pregnancy. As far as Obama is concerned the innocent unborn child in the womb has no rights. God does not enter into the equation.
