Election Results: Pro-life Analysis

"The Lord said, 'Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says. Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them? I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?'" (Luke 18:6-8)

As I type this, I too am wondering where were the Catholic voters because if a Catholic did support an abortion-supporting candidate over a pro-life one, he/she committed a mortal sin!! If you did such an action, repent and confess your sins. Mortal sins are serious! Read St. John Vianney's Catechism on Sin.

To me it doesn't seem that Americans voted for abortion and against morality. It just seems that other national issues took precedence, and they voted for those issues instead of for morality like all Catholics/Christians should have done.

Update: Pro-life politicians have lost control of both the House and the Senate in the United States.


As a citizen of Illinois, I am disappointed in the results. Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) was re-elected, and since there was no clearly pro-life politician running, that is not a big loss. Unfortunately, pro-abortion candidates kept offices like Secretary of State and Attorney General.

Here are some of the top Senate Races and the Results:

A sad comment on the thinking (or lack of) of American Catholics: Rhode Island, the only predominantly Catholic state, voted in a pro-abortion Senator.

My husband and I were disappointed with last night's results.

I'm especially disappointed with what happened in Missouri and in South Dakota.

God "removes kings and setteth up kings" (Daniel 2:20,21)

To be disappointed is to be disappointed with God's Plan.

Yes, agreed. It's a tough thing to accept sometimes but maybe God has chosen these people for a specific purpose. Maybe one of the reasons why God has allowed these people to be in government is to encourage us to continue preaching...
