ESPERANSA PROJECT: VOTERS GUIDE FOR PRIMARY ELECTION

The Esperansa Project normally puts out a voters guide for each election based on the candidates' positions on abortion. The Esperansa Project will have a more thorough guide for the general election. For now, the Esperansa Project can only advise on who NOT to vote for based on Bill 195's voting sheet. BILL 195-32 mandated normal medical care for children who survive a failed abortion. A YES vote on the bill means PROVIDE NORMAL MEDICAL CARE to the child. A NO vote means LET THE CHILD DIE. 

Also, if any candidate would like to express their positions on this issue, you are free to do so in the comments below.

  1. For the primary, vote republican and vote for everybody except Aline Yamashita. Best way to get rid of one of these abortion catholics. Useless to vote for dems at this primary because no one can be eliminated.
    Go Tim!

  2. Regardless of what their stances are on the matter, I'd have one thing to ask all of them: How did you arrive at your answer?

    1. Good suggestion. I'll get a copy of the session in which this bill was debated and you can watch it.

  3. Sorry, but the Republicans do NOT have a monopoly on conscientiousness in their vote. I'd suggest to stay away from secular politics as we have enough politics in trying to protect our church.

    1. As I've stated elsewhere, I have no person or party loyalty. I vote strictly on issues, and particularly this one. The Democratic Party National Platform contains a blatant pro-abortion plank while the Republicans are just as blatantly pro-life. However, it's different when it comes down to individuals and how they vote. In this case, the most active pro-life politicians were Democrats, however, so were the most active and vociferous pro-abortion ones, even though Yamashita is a Republican.

  5. Where does Narissa Underwood stand on abortion? She asked me to vote for her. She was my superintendent and I was happy with her leadership.

  6. Sen muna barnes passed twice before casting her vote. Yet in the publics eye she's pro life. What a slap in the face. I vote on issues and actions speak louder than words.
