Framing the Abortion Issue

Today's Washington Times features a "Plugged In Politics" section with a side-by-side comparison of Obama and McCain.  Obama's position on abortion is described as "Favors abortion rights," while McCain's position is, "Opposes abortion rights." 

McCain opposes abortion rights???  Is there a "right" to abortion that I'm not aware of in the Constitution?  Clearly, there is a right to, "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness..."

Shouldn't that be Obama "Opposes the right to life" and McCain "Supports the right to life?"

... I would expect this from the WaPost or the NYT, but it's disappointing to see this framing coming form the WaTimes...
