“Two temptations in public life can distort the Church’s defense of human life and dignity: The first is a moral equivalence that makes no ethical distinctions between different kinds of issues involving human life and dignity. The direct and intentional destruction of innocent human life from the moment of conception until natural death is always wrong and is not just one issue among many. It must always be opposed. The second is the misuse of these necessary moral distinctions as a way of dismissing or ignoring other serious threats to human life and dignity.” (Paragraphs 27-29)

The special prayer intention for this month is the protection of all human life from conception to natural death.
To aid you in doing your research on all of this year’s candidates (as you apply Catholic voting principles to decide who will get your vote) we have compiled a list of all the candidates as well as links to their websites. Feel free to print this out, mark your choices, and bring it with you when you go to the polls next month.
Where do you go to vote? Like in this year’s primaries, Howard County will again make use of voting centers. You can cast your vote at any of these centers spread throughout the county. For a full list of all the centers, their addresses with maps, and dates you can vote there (some, not all, are also used for early voting), go to: http://www.howardcountyin.gov/where-do-i-vote.
