Abortion is a significant voting issue for several compelling reasons.

Firstly, it involves the intentional killing of human beings. The foundational role of any society, harking back to the days of Noah, is to prevent the shedding of innocent blood. Protecting the lives of the most vulnerable among us is a moral imperative, and the unborn represent the epitome of this vulnerability.

Secondly, despite the gravity of this issue, none of the main political parties are taking decisive action. Imagine the outrage and immediate response if a primary school were tragically blown up; the public would demand swift and severe action, and rightfully so. Yet, in the UK, over 550 babies are aborted daily, a staggering loss met with political silence or even support. This dissonance between the value placed on lives already born and wanted versus those yet to be born and unwanted is a troubling societal contradiction that must be addressed. Assuming the main parties won't we must!

Additionally, our population is under-replicating, raising concerns about who will care for our aging population in the future. A declining birth rate, exacerbated by high abortion rates, poses significant economic and social challenges. Even if people cannot comprehend the huge moral weight of abortion, hopefully they can at the very least see numerically we are "shooting ourselves in the womb".

Lastly, history shows that every society has its settled evils, such as slavery, apartheid, and racism. It is the duty of morally conscious individuals to challenge and overcome these injustices through the democratic process. Being anti slavery was at one point a niche political stance, an eccentricity of the non conformist, yet through the work of the predominately evangelical abolitionists it became the defining issue of the day.

Abortion is no different, it demands our collective moral and political attention.

As voters, we must urge our leaders to address this critical concern with the seriousness it deserves.
