Kaitlyn Brower Dressman: This pro-life doctor is voting for Biden

https://www.sltrib.com/opinion/commentary/2020/10/16/kaitlyn-brower-dressman/

I am a medical doctor and an active sixth-generation member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As such, I am deeply committed to protecting the lives, rights and health of as many people as possible, both born and unborn.

I have also never voted for a Democrat for federal office. But, in keeping with my belief that every human being is a child of God of infinite worth and divine purpose, and that every life, both born and unborn matters, I will be voting this November for Joe Biden.

Democratic presidents have been three to six times more effective at reducing abortions since Roe v. Wade than Republican presidents. Pro-life voters can either focus on the end goal of eliminating as many abortions as possible, or they can continue pushing counterproductive restrictions that are proven ineffective at reaching their goal. They cannot continue to both pursue their preferred policy and reach their end goal.

Until Republicans address this mismatch and turn to evidence-based abortion policy, a vote for a Republican president is a vote for more abortions. If youíre a single-issue pro-life voter who is actually concerned about protecting fetal lives, youíll vote blue, not red.

2. That is because Democrats favor methods to reduce abortions

By promoting Education, sexual responsibility, proper use of contraception, to reduce the need for abortions. Becoming a parent when ready is as vital a pursuit. Most Doctors understand that.
