To reply to jeratboy, I will use some of Berrycat’s stuff.
[quote:2ewsii3u]Whether or not a candidate is pro-life can and might actually tell you where his or her values lie. What I mean is if a candidate is pro-choice to kill, will he or she demoralize life in other places?[/quote:2ewsii3u]
But just because someone is against abortion does not make them pro-life. If they support the death penalty, remove programs to help the people who cannot live without those programs and kills hundreds of thousands of people (innocent not excluded) in a war on unfounded “evidence” then what kinds of values are those?
And don’t let the ban on partial-birth abortion fool you. There were so few of those being done in the first place, it’s not as if it had a major impact on stopping abortion.
There are so many more things to consider about a candidate than his or her stance on abortion that I think it is foolish to consider or not consider a candidate on that criterion alone. ” title=”Neutral” />
