You are wrong. Abortion is above all a moral issue not a political issue. When we stand judgment we won't be held to account for how successful we were but how faithful we were. Treating abortion as a tradeable political issue diminishes the value of each and every human life, uniquely created by Heavenly Father.
Nope, your path is foolish at best!
Nothings says that we can not do our best, politically, while also, morally, advising that ALL abortion is wrong.
Why must abortion be handled DIFFERENTLY than every other political issue?
Politics is the very ART of COMPROMISE!
And, if you refuse to get the best deal you can, at EVERY opportunity:
YOU CREATE MONSTERS LIKE GEORGE TILLER!
George Tiller would never have been as powerful as he was, in Kansas, if not for the pro life purists who refused to put him out of business with politically popular legislation THAT WOULD HAVE PASSED!
Same goes for self defense. Our forefathers were very wise men.
