This is a good article, although I think voting for John McCain is a mistake as well. It's time to vote our conscience...not for the Republican party, which has failed over and over again in protecting the unborn.

By vote our conscience, let me clarify, I mean either a non vote or a vote for a third party, pro-life candidate. Obama is pro-choice and pro-war, so even those who think he'll end our global dominance aspirations are sadly mistaken.

Jeff,

I question your logic here. I think I could make the argument that wasting your vote on a third party or a non-vote is immoral. To do so and allow Obama (a huge pro-abortion guy) to be elected is indefensible. The GOP, although imperfect on pro-life issues, has at least given us pro-life judges like Roberts, Scalia, Alito and Thomas.

Hello,

Thanks for the interesting read. However, let's not forget that McCain stated in the forum that he supports stem cell research. Unfortunately, no follow up questions were allowed. It left me wanting McCain to define what 'Pro-Life' means to him.

Sam,
We'll likely just have to agree to disagree here. I don't think the Republican party is pro-life. Take a look at the loads of people throughout the world that have been displaced or killed through our collateral damage in unnecessary wars.
The Democrats are no different. Both parties are pro-war.
Republicans, by professing to be pro-life and pro-family, may be marginally better than Democrats, but that fine a line continues to blur.
If we continue to vote for the lesser of two evils, we'll always get exactly the government we deserve. Only the Catholic Church, through Jesus Christ, has the power to end abortion.
Pray.

Is there a national support group for Catholics with Cancer? I would like to know because I am doing a breast cancer project and I am trying to get resources together for people with cancer of all faiths but have not been able to find a resource for my own faith.

With all the discussion of pro-life, pro-choice candidates...Did not Obama state that "the choice for abortion is always the wrong one?" Can it be that those who say they are pro/choice really mean that they do not want to see the era of septic, coat hanger saline abortions come back to haunt us? The choice really does lie with the woman and not the federal government. It seems to me that she will do what she will do be it the right choice or the murder of the innocent. It is mainly on her conscience and no one can persuade me that she does not experience that.

The problem with this argument is that you are justifying the cause. Coat hanger, saline and all, legal or not, your saying a woman is going to do what a woman is going to do, or at least should have the right to do. To have government sanctioned abortions vs not is justifying the crime of murder. I don't understand how so many can be against the war in Iraq and turn a blind eye to this issue. Open your eyes. 1.2 million babies are aborted a year in the United States alone (2% related to rape and incest, 1% related to potential threats to the mother) and we are worried about the death toll in Iraq. Seriously, that means for every one person who has died in Iraq, 4-5 babies are aborted in the United States alone simply because they are not wanted (this is assuming that the death toll of 1.2 million in Iraq is correct, Only about 91,000 are actually verified).
