Caveat emptor

John McCain is surprisingly honest and direct about his desire to ban abortion:

John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned, and as president he will nominate judges who understand that courts should not be in the business of legislating from the bench.

[…]

However, the reversal of Roe v. Wade represents only one step in the long path toward ending abortion.

The pro-life movement has done tremendous work in building and reinforcing the infrastructure of civil society by strengthening faith-based, community, and neighborhood organizations that provide critical services to pregnant mothers in need. […] These important groups can help build the consensus necessary to end abortion at the state level.

Straight talk indeed.
