Pro-Choice AND Pro-Life??
August 6, 2007 1 Comment
I was glancing at some headlines from Baptist Press News and saw the following headline: Baptist Press – Romney: past pro-choice position ‘mistake’. This post is not about Romney but as I glanced at the article I started thinking about how popular this stance on child sacrifice (abortion) is for politicians today. So many will say something like “I do not personally support abortion but I do support a woman’s right to choose.” Let me be clear – I think this is the position of a spineless jellyfish who does not deserve to be considered for any office whatsoever.
The obvious question then arises as to how someone can support something publicly that they do not support personally. The answer is simple – they are trying to walk the fine line and not anger either side. The reality is that any true pro-life person could never (and should never) vote for a person this gutless. A politician cannot hold two opposing views at the same time. One will always become primary. Does this sound familiar? Does not the Bible teach that you can’t server two masters?
The simple truth is that if a person supports the murder of unborn children at any time for the convenience of the parents or to avoid the consequences of the actions of the parents then that person is pro-choice no matter what they claim to believe personally. These people need to repent. This is a moral issue to me and testifies to the character of the person who tries to put forward this position. Abortion should not be legal in any circumstance.
If you are a Christian then please vote but vote responsibly. Take the time to discover how the candidate you support stands on this very important issue. If he is on the wrong side of it and won’t publicly repent then you need to find someone else to cast your vote for.
That’s my opinion and it is worth exactly what you paid for it.
