Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A Catholic pro-life group has issued an endorsement for John McCain, the Arizona senator who appears likely to become the Republican presidential nominee. The political action committee for Fidelis says McCain is pro-life on abortion and calls the pro-abortion positions of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton "disastrous."
Brian Burch, the group's president, told LifeNews.com on Monday that his organization is joining "a growing chorus of conservatives" in backing McCain.
"Fidelis believes McCain’s pro-life record [and] his commitment to selecting judges who will respect the Constitution ... merit the support of Catholics," Burch said. "We are proud to stand with him as he prepares for a very difficult election ahead."
"Abortion supporters are awaiting the opportunity to eliminate eight years of progress on pro-life legislation by electing a President who supports abortion," Burch says.
"There are six justices on the Supreme Court over the age of 68, and granting a President Hillary or President Obama the opportunity to fill possible vacancies would be disastrous," he concluded.
