Even So...

April 14, 2015 MONTICELLO, Iowa—Hillary Clinton may have been speaking to just 22 people here at her Iowa kickoff event, but the now-official 2016 candidate was looking far beyond the voters in the room when she outlined in the clearest terms yet the rationale for her campaign.
"A lot of people in the last few days have asked me, 'Why do you want to do this?' and 'What motivates you?'" Clinton said at the event. "And I've thought a lot about it, and I guess the short answer is, I've been fighting for children and families my entire life. ... I want to be the champion who goes to bat for Americans."

Okay.  Families usually have children in them, and Mrs. Clinton wants to be known as a champion of both children and families.
Well and good.
Every baby aborted five years ago would be in kindergarten right now if they had not been killed in the womb. Oh, and they would be Americans. Someday they would be voters.
Two main political parties in America-one defends Abortion, protecting it as a 'right'.
Not a moral right. A political one.
The other political party says that it considers Abortion murder, but has been unable to do anything about it for 42 years? 
Here's my point-I do not expect any good to be achieved by any political party.
As a Christian, I am waiting for our Lord to return and set this world straight.
Until that day, my conscience will be my voter's guide.

I really do not want to get political-please note that this post does not 'bash' Hillary Clinton, or say anything about the Presidential election.
I was stirred to write this by her 'wanting to be considered a champion of children and families'.
That, coming from a person who defends Abortion just sounds wrong.
