it is not wrong for a catholic to vote for a prochoice president, in this political climate
Debate Rounds (3)
the pope said a person shouldn't vote for prochoice politicians unless a proportionate reason exists to vote for them. this could include not just bigger genocides, but also the idea that voting on the issue of abortion likely wont change abortion. prolife presidents get elected, but not much changes. there's not enough people who are prolife to justify keeping voting on that issue alone, arguably.
The Catholic Church opposes all forms of abortion procedures whose direct purpose is to destroy an embryo, blastocyst, zygote or fetus, since it holds that "human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception". Maybe "wrong" isn't the best word because it varies on a persons morality. If the pope says you shouldn't vote for a pro-choice politician, who clearly supports something that the church says is immoral, then it is "wrong" to vote for a pro-choice politician.
you haven't said why what you describe would necessarily be proportionate reasons one way or the other.
