I feel this requires a discussion out of the realm of the ongoing abortion thread. I'm quoting from that thread: Is this really a scriptural position? Can we prove that God applies the sin of one person to another? When we vote for a person who believes that abortion is the choice of the individual, not the government, are we really responsible if someone choses to take the life of their unborn? I can't see it myself. God doesn't apply the consequences of someone else's sin to my account. My voting for a person who believes abortion should remain legal, doesn't force a woman to kill her unborn any more than my vote for a person who believes abortion should be illegal, forces a woman to bear a live child and then leave it lying to die in the woods. I am not responsible for the decisions of anyone but myself. The idea that voting for a prochoice candidate somehow encourages more women to sin is simply illogical. Women sin, because women sin. (just like men do I might add) What is being implied by the position that voting prochoice = responsibility is the same as those gun control advocates who try to make gun manufacturers responsible for someone using the gun to murder someone. It completely disregards the free will of the person making the decision.
