McCain, Obama clash on abortion during final debate
Catholic World News - October 16, 2008
Senators Barack Obama and John McCain sparred on abortion, among other issues, during the final televised debate of their presidential campaign. McCain said that the Roe v. Wade case was wrongly decided, but stopped short of saying that he would appoint only judges who agreed with him on that point; Obama said that he agreed with the Roe decision. McCain attacked Obama for his vote in the Illinois legislature against a bill that would have provided protection for babies born alive after an incomplete abortion. Meanwhile several other presidential candidates, virtually ignored by the mainstream media, prepared for their own debate.
