Today in Pro-Life News

Let us go then, you and I, to certain half-deserted websites filled with tedious arguments–Pro-Life News.

Up pops everyone’s favorite 5-Percent Maverick, John McCain. Pro-Life News assures its readers that McCain won’t follow through on his past desire to change the GOP abortion platform so that it might (gasp) include exceptions for rape and incest. In his 2000 presidential campaign, McCain thought that might be reasonable. Not now, apparently. C-VILLE had a sidebar in its sex ed cover story that broke down the three remaining presidential candidates in terms of their stances on sex ed/reproductive rights/gyno-facsism.

But the money quote from Pro-Life News? Well that would be from Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council: "If he were to change the party platform, I think that would be political suicide. I think he would be aborting his own campaign because that is such a critical issue to so many Republican voters and the Republican brand is already in trouble."

And we all know, campaigns begin at conception.

The last item tackles the recent controversy at Charlottesville and Albemarle high schools regarding students wearing "Virginity Rocks" t-shirts. Both schools allegedly told students to ditch the t’s, and that is a sure-fire way to raise the ire of the Rutherford Institute. It sounds like the situation has settled into your basic "Did not/Did too" legal standoff. You know, technically speaking.
