vote for those candidates that agree with the Church's teachings on the five non-negotiables, which are always wrong (abortion, embryonic stem cell research, gay marriage, euthanasia, and cloning). The Church never supports a candidate, but it supports views on issues.
So, please above all vote for the candidates
that are pro-life. Pro-life of course also means being anti-poverty and
caring for the less fortunate in society but opposition to abortion
should be our #1 concern. The Church teaches that it is a mortal sin to vote for a politician that supports abortion if there is a candidate running who is against abortion (read more)
According to the exit polls from the 2012 Presidential election, 51% of Catholics voted in favor of the pro-abortion, anti-Catholic Obama while 49% voted
in favor of the pro-life candidate. Even more discouraging is the
continued trend in which states that contain large number of Catholics -
even the majority of the state’s population - have consistently voted
for anti-Catholic Democrats (and anti-Catholic Republicans at times).
Why is it that New England is a Democratic stronghold even though 36.6%
of Connecticut’s population is Catholic? Why is 37.1% of New York is
made up of Catholics when the state always elects abortion supporters?
Catholics - the country's largest religious group with one-quarter of the population - have supported the winner of the popular vote in every presidential election since 1972.
To see how your politicians have voted, please see the National Right to Life legislative scorecard. Democrats for Life also has a list of some pro-life candidates. Let us stand up for the right of every little unborn child; let us further the Kingdom of God. I advise all people to vote against the pro-abortion candidates NARAL has endorsed for Congress. Check out Priests for Life for a lot of endorsement information.
