Single Issue Voting

Our nation has a long history of voters who go to the polls to vote for a candidate or against another candidate based on a single issue. From the abolition of slavery to civil rights for African-Americans and women, people have voted their principles and have made a difference for the better. This kind of voting is not new and is not something unique to only a few voters. In fact, single issue voting is critical, especially for the unborn.

To put health care, educational opportunities or better jobs before the protection of innocent human life is ethically questionable. Provided with scientific fact that the unborn are living human beings, how can we vote for a candidate who supports the unfettered killing of defenseless children? The legal "right" to destroy the life of an unborn child for social and economic reasons must end. One tool we all possess that can end this policy of destruction is our informed vote.

A political candidate's position on Roe vs. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court Decision which legalized abortion, is not about the availability of a medical procedure. It is about our government, through the courts and legislative bodies, giving one individual the legal right to kill another innocent human being.

We can change the political landscape by showing both major political parties that we will not accept candidates from either party who support abortion. We must send the strong signal that political candidates who support the killing of unborn children do not have the ability to adequately represent us at any level of government.

All human life has value and to make this a reality in the United States, we need to vote for candidates who are prolife. We need to be proud of our single issue voting. We need to share with others our selfless, focused approach to this critical issue of life.

With appreciation to Right to Life of Michigan for permission to share this position paper.
