SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser Available for Comment on 'Two Ways of Seeing Babies'

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser Available for Comment on 'Two Ways of Seeing Babies'

WASHINGTON, May 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser published a commentary in this week's National Catholic Register that examines how Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Barack Obama (D-IL) react to unexpected children. Selected excerpts follow:

"An especially telling difference exists between Senators Obama and McCain. How each perceives and talks about unplanned children is extremely illuminating. McCain is living the joy of his real-life response to a 'surprise child.' Obama, missing the mystery and blessing, sees only a burden."

"I understand Obama's position because I once held it. I considered myself 'pro-choice' because I did not believe the surprise child had separate rights from my own. In that case, a surprise baby is an invading visitor, an unasked for imposition."

"No matter who you are, how smart or slow you are, how beautiful or plain you look, how much or little money you have, how healthy and physically fit you are - you are necessary. Your right to life is equal to all others'. Even when it's not obvious. Even when your existence requires another's sacrifice."

Full text of the piece is available on the SBA List website,
