In fact it IS automatic excommunication to vote for a pro abortion candidate at the national level if there is another alternative who is pro-life.

For the first time, I'm thinking no. The abortion issue will not go away no matter who is elected. I think the solution to the issue lies elsewhere, not politics. In this land of individual rights, I don't think Roe v Wade will ever be reversed. There are other issues that are very important and could be more influenced by who's in office. That said, I don't think I could EVER vote for a 'pro-choice' candidate. Especially not when they go out of their way to make it an issue by promoting their view in their campaigns.
