GOP Vice Presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) opposes the right to an abortion in all circumstances, unless the life of the mother is at stake. In 2006, Palin said that even if her daughter were raped, “I would choose life.” But in an interview scheduled to air this evening on CBS, Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) wife Cindy said she disagrees with that position. When host Katie Couric asked if she opposes abortion even in the case of rape or incest, Cindy McCain said, “No.” Couric then asked, “that’s where you [and Palin] differ?” “Uh-huh,” she replied.
