Randy Alcorn offers an eternal perspective on your vote in this election:
On Tuesday November 4, don’t think you are merely expressing a preference between two men, choosing who you like, who you’d enjoy hanging out with. You’re not voting for a friend, a dinner companion, a dance partner, someone to sit next to at a ball game or to be seen with at a party. Don’t allow yourself to vote as if this were American Idol. In the arena of an unborn child’s right to live, these candidates stand for things far bigger than themselves. And when it comes to the right to life of coming generations of unborn children, they stand for two polar opposites.If you claim you’re prolife in its historic sense (which concerns unborn children), please don’t violate the sacred meaning of that term by voting for the legalized killing of unborn children. Instead, vote for their right to live. If it helps, substitute the pictures of the men with those of babies, then vote for the baby’s right to live.
If none of this makes sense to you, please reread the Scripture at the beginning of this blog. Then ask God what makes sense to Him.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” (Proverbs 31:8-9)
It would be worth your time to read the whole article which contains some video regarding the development of a child in the womb and also one that shows what abortion does to unborn children (warning: depictions of graphic injustice).
