This you choose life or death?

Some conservatives are skeptical of whether or not Senator McCain will keep his pledge to appoint justices in the spirit of Roberts and Alito. Especially if Republicans lose more House and Senate seats in November. With Senator Obama, you can be sure of not getting conservative Supreme Court Justices like a Thomas or Scalia nominated to the Bench: The Audacity of Death (worth the time to read, regardless of where you stand on the issue, to know the candidate).

via Confederate Yankee, via Rightwingsparkle in the comments at Ace of Spades:
Jill Stanek, a registered delivery-ward nurse who was the prime mover behind the legislation after she witnessed aborted babies' being born alive and left to die, testified twice before Obama in support of the Induced Infant Liability Act bills. She also testified before the U.S. Congress in support of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

Stanek told me her testimony "did not faze" Obama.

In the second hearing, Stanek said, "I brought pictures in and presented them to the committee of very premature babies from my neonatal resuscitation book from the American Pediatric Association, trying to show them unwanted babies were being cast aside. Babies the same age were being treated if they were wanted!"

"And those pictures didn't faze him [Obama] at all," she said.

I'm not suprised the pictures didn't phase him, wordsmith. Yesterday I saw him cuddling and cooing to someone's baby on TV... you know... the old "kiss the baby" politician's schtick! Made me want to upchuck! :(

I'm not at all worried about judges that a President McCain would appoint. He voted for Roberts and Alito. Senator Obama? No way, and there's no doubt the judges he would put in the courts, especially the Supreme Court.
