Is it a mortal sin to vote for a pro-abortion candidate?

Except in the case in which a voter is faced with all pro-abortion candidates, a candidate that is pro-abortion disqualifies himself from receiving a Catholic’s vote. This is because being pro-abortion cannot simply be placed alongside the candidate's other positions on Medicare and unemployment, for example; and this is because abortion is intrinsically evil and cannot be morally justified for any reason or set of circumstances. To vote for such a candidate even with the knowledge that the candidate is pro-abortion is to become an accomplice in the moral evil of abortion. If the voter also knows this, then the voter sins mortally.

Did you know that Norma McCorvey (the "Roe" in Roe vs. Wade) never actually had an abortion? Do you know the true story behind Rov Vs. Wade? Why not read about her story in her own words about the lie that has been perpetuated for 30 years!!!

Your post is very correct and justified.
And I don't think it sounds angry at all.

Truth is the truth.
