Meghan McCain Our Ally Voice in the GOP!

Failed republican presidential candidate John McCain's daughter has been a strong and outspoken ally of the LGBT community, in a party where alliance with queers is frowned upon, and downright politically suicidal. Meghan McCain feels free to voice her opinion, not as a candidate but merely as a concerned progressive republican who supports abortion rights and gay marriage.

She maintains that gay issues are a generational divide and that the younger generation supports gay rights in record high numbers. She goes on to say:

"If the Republican Party has any hope of gaining substantial support from a wider, younger base, we need to get past our anti-gay rhetoric."

She argues that one can maintain their conservative faith and values while supporting civil liberties.

Explaining that "if anyone is still confused, let me spell it out for you. I believe life begins at conception and I believe that people who fall in love should have the option to get married" (AOL).

Contact Meghan McCain and thank her for standing up for equality in a party where her views are largely ignored, shunned, and highly unpopular. She is certainly an agent of change!

Meghan McCain doesn't support abortion rights. In that AOL article you linked to she's quoted as saying, "So if anyone is still confused, let me spell it out for you. I believe life begins at conception and I believe that people who fall in love should have the option to get married." This would imply that Meghan does not support abortion rights.

electrcspacegrl she is personally against abortion but believes all laws should be pro-choice, she believes it is a womans decision not the governments.

Where is it on record that she supports a woman's right to choose?

It was an interview I watch on TV where she said she is personally "pro-life" but doesn't believe govt should dictate this to women, and believes in a womans choice.
