Palin: McCain believes rape and incest victims must give birth to assailant's offspring

All right, Bible Spice! Let’s put a laser-beam focus on that hot button issue of abortion at the very time John McCain is attempting to reach out to independent voters, many of whom are pro-choice. Methinks Sarah Palin is preparing for her 2012 run and it’s damn-the-torpedoes time. This is from her interview with Daddy D. (Mark Ambinder):

Dr. James Dobson today asked Gov. Sarah Palin about her private conversations with Sen. McCain about the Republican platform’s planks on life and marriage.

“In your private conversations with Senator McCain is it your impression that he also strongly supports those views? I know that he did not oppose that platform when it was written. Do you think he will implement it?”

Good question. A lot of social conservatives worry about this.

Governor Palin responded: “I do, from the bottom of my heart. I am such a strong believer that McCain believes in those strong planks and we do have good conversations about some of the details too, about the different planks and what they represent.”

The 2008 GOP platform is a bit more conservative than it was in 2004. If McCain is going to implement it – something of which Palin is convinced from the bottom of her heart – then that means that McCain will support a constitutional amendment to ban all abortion (including those cases where the mother was raped or was the victim of incest), a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, and he will oppose government-sponsored embryonic stem cell research.

The strange thing is, McCain does support embryonic stem cell research and has stated that abortion should be left to the states.  Will he correct her, or have his long standing postions morphed in this desperate time?
