I remember reading recently–maybe on a Priests for Life site–about voting in the long term, keeping in mind future consequences of what you wish for today. Beware a society that doesn’t intrinsically value human life; how easily it could turn on you in your own old age, or through a disabled child you might one day have, seeing that both such circumstances might make a person “worth less” to such a society.
What point is there to society if it doesn’t care for its own citizens? What is the good of humanity without the good of humans?
And for those of you who are Christians, you should recognize your own duty toward those who are defenseless against those who seek to kill THEM. Put yourself in their shoes.
“[W]hatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me” (Mt 25:40, NABRE).
“[W]hat you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me” (Mt 25:45).
