MCDERMOTT'S VIEW ON ABORTION
Jim McDermott is known for his extreme views on foreign policy, but his view on abortion is equally extreme. He is endorsed by NARAL, which has given him a 100% rating. And in a May 18, 2005 speech, McDermott made his position crystal clear:
“The radical Republican right has an agenda and they intend to use every weapon at their disposal to enforce their will upon the American people. The radical Republican right wants to dictate what a woman can and cannot do with her body. The radical Republican right wants to abolish women's rights one court decision at a time. Republicans just gave the radical extremist the right to abolish Roe v Wade. Republicans just handed the radical right the keys to our democracy. Women's rights will be nuked.
“Republican extremists will replace a woman's right to choose with a requirement to be subservient. The Republican Party intends to stack the Court and stack the deck against women....
“Greed is God to these radicals who are attempting to subvert democracy with religious idolatry. Run for your lives, America, the Republicans are coming. Right wing extremists in the Republican Party control the House, the Senate, and the White House, and they want the new trophy, and it is called the Supreme Court.
“They want to send their militants into your homes, into your lives, next to your death bed, to force their will upon you. The Republicans in charge today want to replace the Constitution with the Bible. The Republicans in charge today would like nothing better than to enforce a literal interpretation of the Bible in every American home, every American school, and every American mind.”
The candidacy of Steve Beren provides a clear choice, with stark differences on a wide range of issues. Beren has been endorsed by the Human Life Political Action Committee and the Faith and Freedom Political Action Committee. With regard to protecting the unborn, Steve Beren has stated: “I am committed to the protection of innocent, unborn human life. Our Declaration of Independence proclaims that people are ‘endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.’ We have many rights, but it is no accident that our founding document lists the ‘right to life’ first of all.”
