No, never. I cannot in good conscience support anyone running for public office who believes it is ever acceptable to murder an unborn child.
Some would remind that there are other issues, and they’re right, but none of them are as important as this one. If I can’t trust a candidate to protect and defend our God-given right to life, I can’t trust him or her with any of our rights. I can’t believe they have enough sense, let alone wisdom, to make even diplomatic or economic decisions for our country.
What if all of the candidates are pro-choice?
I would abstain. I wouldn’t vote. That may not be the right answer—I don’t know—but I won’t vote for anyone who supports or even turns a blind eye to the mass murder of innocent people.
Nearly two-thousand-years ago, the author of the Epistle to Diognetus wrote, “[Christians] marry and have children just like everyone else, but they do not kill unwanted babies.” The world has always known disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ as defenders of life. The true church has always sought justice for and the protection of helpless people.
I don’t expect to vote for a fellow Christian, but if he or she is unwilling to protect our most fundamental right, the right to life, he or she will never get my vote.
