I heard a short tidbit on CNN today stating that McCain and Palin differ on some issues and they gave stem cell research as an example, but they
didn't go into detail...so, did a little digging, and thought I would share what I found.
How will these differences matter in the coming election, if at all?
Palin - Favors drilling in the Wildlife refuge in Alaska (Like Bush)
McCain - Opposes drilling in the refuge, but wants more off shore drilling, which he has opposed for years.
Palin - Has stated that she wants creationism taught in school, alongside evolution.
McCain - Stated that he believed in evolution when it came to the origin of life.
Palin - Would like a ban on abortions unless the mother's life is at stake.
McCain - Opposes abortion, but would allow it in case of incest or rape.
Palin - Does not believe global warming is caused by man.
McCain - Stated that man contributes to global warming, and championed efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Stem Cell Research
Palin - Has stated many times that she opposes embryonic stem cell research
McCain - Agrees with stem cell research...and I quote..
I believe that we need to fund this. This is a tough issue for those of us in the pro-life community. I would remind you that these stem cells
are either going to be discarded or perpetually frozen. We need to do what we can to relieve human suffering. It's a tough issue. I support federal
