I was listening to Patrick Madrid on EWTN Open Line (yeah, I know, not Catholic answers haha) and he mentioned that as far as the Church is concerned, it is immoral to vote for a candidate that supports abortion.
Now, we know that president Obama supports abortion, so obviously under Madrid’s statement, it would be immoral to vote for him.
Likewise Mitt Romney, though stating that he is “pro life” says that abortions should be allowed in the cases of rape, incest or to protect the life of the mother. Now, that isn’t totally pro life, that’s pro life mostly, though still advocating for abortion in some instances.
So, therefore, is it immoral to vote for either of the two main party candidates because at least in some circumstances, they support abortion?
