Pro-life groups choose McCain (Stephen Dinan, February 18, 2008, Washington Times)

Sen. John McCain of Arizona, the likely Republican presidential nominee, has exhibited a striking opposition to abortion in most of the major fights, including partial-birth abortion.

Pro-lifers are the first part of the conservative base to rally around Sen. John McCain, overcoming past fights to embrace him as strong on their core issue and a clear choice over the two Democrats he could face.

"He is pro-life in his heart of hearts, in my opinion," said Rep. Christopher H. Smith, New Jersey Republican and a pro-life movement leader, who said Mr. McCain's commitment stretches back across decades of votes in the House and Senate.

The rest are wings.
