Speaking with Katie Couric, Cindy McCain first said Roe V. Wade should not be overturned, and then, when reminded (informed?) of John McCain’s position, Cindy said it should be a states’ rights issue.

CBS checked with the McCain campaign after the interview and was told that Cindy McCain’s position is that abortion should remain legal.


Couric: Where do you stand on abortion?

McCain: I’m pro-life. I’m on the record as being pro-life, like my husband.

Couric: So do you oppose it even in cases of rape and incest?

McCain: No.

Couric: So that’s where you two differ in terms of your position on that.

McCain: Uh-huh

Couric: And do you believe Roe V. Wade should be overturned?

McCain: No. no.

Couric: No. Why not? Your husband does.

McCain: No. I don’t think he does.

Couric: He believes it should be overturned. That’s what he told me, and that it should go to the states.

McCain: Well, in that respect. Yes, yeah, I do. I understand what you’re saying now. It’s a states issue.

Couric: So, you believe it should be overturned or shouldn’t be overturned.

McCain: I believe it’s a states issue. That I do believe.

Couric: How do you feel about creationism? Do you think it should be taught in schools?

McCain: I think both sides should be taught in schools. I think the more children have a frame of reference and an opportunity to read and know and make better decisions and judgments when they are adults. So, I think you know I don’t have any problem with education of any kind.
