What if I agree with everything about a candidate, except his favor of abortion ?

As a catholic can I vote for a canidate who is pro choice in good conscience if I agree with what he stands for except for his pro choice stance.

Dear friend,

If both candidates are pro abortion, then you choose the one who’s stance is the lesser evil. But if the other candidate is pro life, then you cannot vote for the one who is in favor of killing innocent children. What is more valuable than innocent human life? It is the most basic matter of social justice. Of what value are programs for the poor if we don’t allow them to live? Unborn children are the poorest among us.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
