An Interesting Letter to Obama

Thanks again to JT for digging up the good links concerning Obama and the Unborn. This open letter to Obama from the National Review is very stirring. The evidence just continues to mount for me that if you are interested in seeing the pro-life causes move forward, then voting for a pro-choice candidate is not acceptable.

I'm still interested in hearing from those who are Pro-Life and Voting for Obama. I am in awe of Barack's speaking ability. And I am even excited by the way that he presents hope to our country. But I am saddened over his unwillingness to defend the unborn.

I really enjoyed how Sherif Girgis ended this letter:
Now is your chance, Senator Obama, to make good on the spontaneous slogan of your campaign, to adopt the more American and more humane answer to the question of whether we can secure liberty and justice for all: Yes, we can.

I know you have been writing a lot about this topic, and it interests me, too; especially the arguement that all the good a candidate could do might outweigh his pro-choice stance. Although Obama, or any other candidate, might do a lot of great things for the country in general, I wonder how one can justify which "good" is better? It seems to me as though people wish to play a game of political balance scales: how much "good" can someone do to outweigh one "bad" thing. I wonder how anyone who is convinced abortion is wrong can vote for someone who strongly supports it. Another thing I consider is this: from a Christian standpoint, foreign policies and economic opinions may cause harm by extension, but abortion directly and solitarily causes harm. In other words, economics and the like could be sinful policies, but abortion can be nothing but.

It seems simple to me; maybe I just think too simplistically about this, though.
