    • A Catholic cannot vote for a candidate who takes a position in favor of an intrinsic evil…if the voter’s intent is to support that position. In such cases a Catholic would be guilty of formal cooperation in grave evil…(A) voter should not use a candidate’s opposition to an intrinsic evil to justify indifference or inattentiveness to other important moral issues involving human life and dignity.
