Is it okay to be a one issue voter when it comes to abortion?
This post is back by popular demand:
A reader of this blog has recently left a comment appealing to the other readers with the following words about single issue voting:
Please, please…don’t let one single issue [abortion] be your deciding factor. I don’t believe in abortion either, but this election is truly about much, much more than that.
I’ve been hearing this a lot from the left. For some reason “single issue” voting is seen as being shallow. Well, let me put it this way: Would it be okay for Germans to vote for Hitler because his “election was truly about much, much more than that” when his platform included the state-supported murder of Jews? Would it be okay to vote against Hitler simply because one objected to killing people based on creed or race? What if you agree with Hitler on national pride, unity, health care, tax structures, schooling, etc. Should one ignore the one important issue and vote for Hitler because “we agree on everything else?”
Barack Obama says it’s okay to kill infants and wants to use my tax money to assist in that diabolical practice. This one issue – the right for a human being to have life – is the one issue that supports all other rights. If a child does not have the right to life, then he or she doesn’t have the right to education, healthcare, etc.
How can any issue in this election be “much more” important than that?
Think about all the babies that have been killed. Can a war in a Iraq, gas prices, health care, or mortgages be more important than a single issue when that issue is the fundamental issue for all human beings?
We’re looking into the eyes of manifest evil. You have a vote. Vote to end the evil.
