The New Republic has a piece by Sarah Blustain on John McCain and his position on abortion. While the piece is more than a little over-the-top it does contain some worthwhile quotes from various individuals who had contact with McCain in his early political career. This piece might offer some reassurance to prolifers concerned about McCain’s position on abortion.

CNN has a commentary by Steven Curtis Chapman on adoption.

Rick Garnett provides a possible response to a Doug Kmiec question regarding why someone shouldn’t vote for Obama though I disagree with Garnett's assertion about the certainty of the Freedom of Choice Act passing.
Because Sen. Obama voted against a law banning the killing of infants that survive abortions, he voted to filibuster Justice Alito (in a context where the leading arguments against the nominee involved his vote upholding abortion regulations) and would probably nominate judges and justices who, though entirely competent and decent, would have misguided views on religious-freedom and church-state matters, he opposes school choice, he would roll back the faith-based initiative, and his election means the certain passage into law of the awful Freedom of Choice Act. He looks great when he raises his chin, and some of what he says -- when he is not thundering in support of abortion rights -- sounds nice, but that's just not enough. For me. For what it's worth. . . .
