But... What About Abortion?

Is abortion the one issue that should determine how Christians vote?


In this insane election year, Christians are debating a whole host of issues. The character of the president. Immigration. Race. The environment. The police. COVID-19. But in all these debates, one issue arises that seems to trump them all: Abortion. And there is one solution to abortion: Overturning Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in 1973. Without Roe, abortion would still be illegal. Problem solved.


Except the reality is much more complicated than that. Starting with the fact that Roe didn’t make abortion legal, and overturning Roe wouldn’t make abortion illegal. Throw in the fact that the abortion rate in 1972 - before Roe - was actually HIGHER than it is today, and things get really confusing. Our friend David French, a pro-life civil liberties attorney, recently wrote about the reality of politics and abortion in America today. When Holy Post co-host Skye Jethani echoed French’s point of view on Twitter, people asked if we could summarize it with a video.


So we did.


This is a tough topic. You may disagree with David and Skye. And that’s okay. We just think it’s a conversation worth having.

Phil and Skye, do you have any thoughts on the arguments and premises of this video now that the supreme court seems poised to overturn Roe v. Wade? Anything you see differently or anything you might change?

This video is well done, thank you, for you have articulated with evidence, what I have been trying to make clear to my fellow Christians, without much success.

Great video Skye. I am pro-choice. I do wonder if Obamacare helped to reduce abortions.

This issue is a big one in determining how I vote, but I honestly don’t think about Row vrs Wade much (as far as overturning). I think more about the candidates and their beliefs on the subject. I can’t honestly support someone who thinks abortions okay and promotes it and passes bills and executive orders that use our tax money to fund abortion clinics in states and now abroad (what?). I think many agree, we don’t want to be any part of that. I desire a leader who honors life and fights for it, even if they don’t see abortion numbers drop.

I do agree with Skye about how working on our local level can be effective in helping moms…
