The always insightful Joe Carter has written a helpful piece for The Gospel Coalition titled “5 Ways Presidents Affect the Pro-Life Cause.” It’s a worthwhile read on this Election Day. You need to read the whole article, but here is Joe’s concluding paragraph:
Christians have an obligation to the most vulnerable members of our society to elect politicians who have both a robust view of human dignity and the temerity to govern accordingly. We betray this duty when we downplay the role the executive branch in advancing the pro-life cause. While judges and legislators are important for the protection of human dignity, presidents matter too.
