The Columbus Dispatch published an article by columnist Christine M. Flowers this week explaining why she is “holding her nose” and voting for Donald Trump.

Flowers has written several columns explaining her distain for the Republican presidential candidate. She even described him as “the single most disgusting substance I have encountered in my 54 years on earth.” Yet despite this blatant disregard, the columnist says she will vote for him in November.

Flowers explains that she cannot put Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the position of winning the presidency simply because of her distain for Trump: “The reason that I am turning myself into a hypocrite of the highest order at an epidermal level, is to keep myself from becoming a hypocrite at the deepest level of consciousness. I cannot put Hillary Clinton in a position to shape the Supreme Court.”

SIGN THE PLEDGE: I Pledge to Vote for a Pro-Life Candidate for President

Flowers wants a Supreme Court that will defend unborn children and uphold basic safety regulations in abortion mills. If Clinton becomes president, she has promised to appoint pro-abortion justices as she continues her fight for extreme abortion laws.

This was evident in Clinton’s statement regarding the recent Supreme Court ruling that overturned Texas abortion clinic regulations: “We need a president who will defend women’s health and rights and appoint Supreme Court justices who recognize Roe v. Wade as settled law. We must continue to protect access to safe and legal abortion – not just on paper, but in reality.”

This is why many pro-life leaders are supporting Trump. On June 21, Trump met with a group of pro-life leaders, and told them he would choose justices who are pro-life. Although his past statements regarding abortion have been varied, he is undoubtedly the candidate who will defend the most unborn lives.

As Flowers says, “…Ruth Bader Ginsburg was clinging to her gavel until a liberal could replace her, and the other four feminists (including Breyer and Kennedy) were in good health. Currently, the only thing standing between Clinton and the court is Trump.”
