Elections and the Importance of Voting Pro-Life

(Note to Viewers: For more election resources, check out the "Church & State" link page for more information.)

 

“...We get the public officials we deserve. Their virtue -- or lack thereof -- is a judgment not only on them, but on us. Because of this, we urge our fellow citizens to see beyond party politics, to analyze campaign rhetoric critically, and to choose their political leaders according to principle, not party affiliation or mere self-interest.” (1998, “Living the Gospel of Life,” n. 34)
