Does This Election Really Matter In Terms Of Abortion?

Why should Catholics vote Republican? We’ve had Republican presidents for twenty of the last thirty-six years yet Abortion is still legal and Roe v Wade is still the law of the land. What difference does it make to vote Republican? It is not like Hillary will legalize Abortion?
How many Catholics voted for Bill Clinton thinking it wouldn’t make a difference? Well it did; Congress passed a bill outlawing partial-birth abortions but Bill Clinton vetoed it. He also used federal funds to promote abortions abroad. How many children died because Bill Clinton was president?
Anyone with sense knows that Donald Trump will not ban all abortions in the U. S. But he will obey the Hyde Amendment, forbidding the use of federal funds to fund abortions. He will be able to stop the U.S. from using federal funds to promote abortions abroad. Under Trump the U.S. will not be pressuring countries to legalize abortions. He will not be pushing to make abortions free and paid for by taxpayers. Doctors and nurses will not be forced to violate their conscience and participate in abortions. Catholic hospitals will not be forced to perform abortions.
Under Trump there will be a real possibility of Congress passing a law banning abortions once a child can feel pain after twenty weeks. Late term abortions in the 9th month of pregnancy could be banned. Children born alive despite an attempt to abort could be saved rather than left to die. Millions of children would be saved from abortion and given a chance for life.
On the other hand the Democrats are pushing for free abortions. No doubt this will encourage young men to try harder since they won’t have any consequences and more young women will be used and hurt.
They are also talking about forcing doctors, nurses and hospitals to perform abortions. Religion doesn’t matter. After all Hillary believes we must change our religious beliefs. The First Amendment doesn’t matter. All that matters is for women to have the right to kill their pre-born children. We are moving towards a dictatorship and for what; unlimited sex and the unlimited killing of children!
Who knows what these children might have become. Maybe one of them will become the doctor who finally discovers the cure for cancer or some other horrible disease. And maybe we’ve already aborted the person God created with the right set of genes to develop into the scientist with the intelligence to cure cancer.
One thing is definite, with Hillary as president many more children will die.
