Re: May Catholics support 'compromise' abortion legislation?
Yes, we can support comprise legislation as a stepping-stone towards irradiating new abortions. If there are only two candidates running for a political position. One favors abortion on-demand throughout the entire pregnancy, while candidate # 2 favors abortion on-demand during only the first trimester. I could in good conscience vote for # 2, even though it is only voting to reduce abortions, not get rid of them altogether.
I've also seen this discussed in regards to politicians who hold office. Suppose the government currently pays for a million abortions per year (God-forbid), and a bill is introduced which would fund only 1/2 million abortions. The politician could vote for that bill in good conscience. Even though they appear to be voting in favor of 1/2 million abortions, they are voting against 1/2 million abortions.
