When is it Acceptable for a ''Pro-Life'' Voter to Vote for a ''Pro-Choice'' Candidate?

by Gerard V. Bradley

You can read the article here.

Let me add the disclaimer here that I don't think that it is every acceptable to vote for someone who is pro-abortion.

I'm sorry, Shannon. This is where we differ GREATLY! When it comes to the life of the innocent, the one small thing I can do to help protect them is to ensure that I DON'T vote for someone who is in favor of giving the choice of whether they live or die to another human being. There are many issues involved in this election and I don't agree with either candidate on many things...but I'll do all that I can to protect the life of an unborn child.

Shannon, I can't insert a hyperlink here, but it would behoove readers to look at Justin Taylor's blog entry posted yesterday (Tuesday, Oct. 21), entitled "Ballad Box Blues". Very insightful. Love you, friend.

Teana, we don't differ at all. I am complete agreement with you!

I do think that the article allows us to see how someone might be able to overlook the abortion issue and tackle more "pressing" issues.

But I do not think it is ever acceptable to vote for a pro-choice, aka pro-abortion candidate.
