The Role of Pro-Life in Politics
While it is not our intent to get involved in politics or to make political statements, we do believe it’s vital to understand why it is so very important to know where your favored candidates stand on the abortion issue. For, it isn’t simply an issue, it’s a moral and spiritual stand. Whether a political candidate supports life or stands for the preservation of abortion as a right, will have a resounding influence not only on the community in which you live, but on the trajectory of our country as a whole.
Lawmakers are the ones relied upon to sit in sessions wherein they propose and debate old laws, new laws, and propositions. Where they stand on this important topic influences their decision-making in many areas. As believers and as citizens, we are called to be voters of our faith and substance. God is our ultimate ruler, and He rules the government rulers, but it is our responsibility to vote for those who are in alignment with the word of God and the understanding of the sanctity of human life.
Whether an unborn child is seen as a person or a choice by state law is first determined by a lawmaker. These lawmakers are the individuals who have been voted into a trusted position to influence legislation that represents their constituents. While it seems that we’re often faced with choosing the “lesser of two evils” these days, it’s likely that, by choosing the pro-life candidate, you are choosing someone who also stands most similarly to you on the remaining issues. We are the hands and feet of Jesus and we are called to act as such in every action and decision we enter into – even political ones.
Remember, those voted into office are those influencing decisions within our communities and country that will affect all of us, our children and our generations to come. Protecting the lives of the unborn has been a battle we’ve waged since even before Roe v. Wade. As believers and as members of the pro-life movement, we are called to defend and honor future generations with those who will protect them now. Before you head to the polls in any election, educate yourself on each candidate’s stance on the abortion issue and whether their beliefs align with your Christian values.
He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; - Daniel 2:21
