Greetings in Christ,
I live in the USA and this year we are having U.S Congressional Elections. Our Congressional Representative is strongly pro-choice. His opponent( for the general election, we aren’t having a primary) is a state legislature. She is not pro-life. She is personally pro-life, but she has suggested that she shouldn’t “impose” her view on other women who may be in very difficult situations. She does oppose abortion in the third trimester, she has voted against expanding abortion “rights” in our state law, and she seems friendly to the pro-life movement (unlike the guy she’s running against). She is also a great woman who has done tremendous good for our community and our state as a whole. Additionally, many she has many other positions that are fully in line with Catholic Social Teaching (also unlike her opponent).
Since there will be no pro-life candidate on the ballot, how would you vote? I am considering voting for her because she would limit abortion at least to an extent. Still, voting for someone who is (at least publicly) pro-choice feels impossible to do in good conscious.
