The Worst of John McCain

Planned Parenthood speaks out:

John McCain is ardently anti-choice — he wants to make abortion illegal and overturn Roe v. Wade. These positions put him out of step with mainstream voters and will hurt him in the general election.

However, as NPR reported on February 2, 2008, many Republican voters incorrectly believe that Sen. McCain supports abortion rights.

That’s why Planned Parenthood is educating voters about John McCain’s anti-choice record.


  • A recent poll found that 62 percent of voters support Roe v. Wade, with 64 percent of independent voters supporting Roe v. Wade.
  • Based on the same poll, by a 20-point margin, voters believe abortion should be legal (57–37); among independent voters, that margin increases to 26 points (59–33).
  • McCain received a zero percent rating from the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the lowest rating in the U.S. Senate.
“Sen. McCain believes government has the right to interfere with the most personal and often the most difficult decisions affecting a woman's health. Most Americans believe just the opposite and, as more voters realize Sen. McCain’s ardent anti-choice position, this will be an issue for him in the general election.”
— Cecile Richards, President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund
