Brian Fisher on One-Issue Voting

Many Christians argue that we can't be one-issue voters. When choosing a candidate for office, we must consider the candidate's perspectives on the role of government, the economy, the environment, second amendment rights, and a host of other very important issues. Certainly we need to understand a prospective candidate's positions on all essential issues. We need to make informed choices when we vote.

However, as I've maintained throughout this book, abortion is the primary spiritual, cultural, and familial issue of our age. And the right to life, as articulated in the Declaration of Independence, is the first of all of the inalienable rights. In other words, if your favorite political candidate is in favor of fatally discriminating against the weakest among us, he or she is rejecting the foundational right upon which all other rights are based. And to vote for a pro-abortion candidate is, quite simply, to reject the clear teachings of the Bible. Your pro-abortion vote leads to the death of millions.1

Stand firm in Christ,
