It is imperative that we remember that a Christian should not cast a vote which would support the pro-choice stance. It is also imperative to remember that not to vote at all is to fail to support the cause of life. Some have looked at Libertarian candidates as one option but if that Libertarian point of view leaves abortion legal and the choice up to the individual, that is not a choice we can in good conscience countenance. IF there is candidate who can be counted upon to stand for life and against the politics of death, we should cast our vote for the cause of life. While this is certainly true in the Presidential Election, it is no less true in state and local elections.
There is no righteous candidate out there whom we can support on every level or on every issue. We have candidates before us who are all flawed on many levels. But this is not a theoretical choice. It is a choice that will affect the hundreds and hundreds of thousands of babies routinely aborted each and every year. Millions and millions since abortion was legalized in 1973. And this is not simply about abortion. It is about the protection of the aged, the frail, and those whom society has decided are not living lives worth living. It is about the choice of people to end their lives at will with the help of physician and medicine to make that choice a painless death. It is about at least these and more.
Though some have tried to make abortion smaller, as merely one of many causes in the seamless garment of life issues, abortion is the center of the cause and the beating heart of the pro-life cause. I will not tell you who to vote for. I cannot and should not. But I will tell you as a Christian, you should vote for the cause of life wherever the option is available to you.
