Whether you are conservative, moderate, or liberal (yes there ARE pro-life liberals) you may find yourself in a bit of a dilemma for this election. You want to vote pro-life, but the Republican candidate is someone you can’t vote for in good conscience.
Solution 1 (which many are considering) is to NOT vote at all.
Solution 2 is better. Vote for a pro-life candidate in the Constitution Party (which I have done at times in the past).
I think any pro-life voter will be THRILLED with the Constitution Party! Really, I am not joking! On the very front page of their platform is SANCTITY OF LIFE. It is extensive and includes this:
The pre-born child, whose life begins at fertilization, is a human being created in God’s image. The first duty of the law is to prevent the shedding of innocent blood. It is, therefore, the duty of all civil governments to secure and to safeguard the lives of the pre-born.
Yes, you CAN vote for the Constitution Party candidate (Don Blankenship). It is NOT a write-in vote! And it is MUCH better than not voting at all! Hopefully this gives you another alternative to this election in addition to Republican, Democrat or NOT VOTING!
