President’s concern for kids is lacking

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

Excerpt from USA Today, Dec. 14: “‘Our hearts are broken today,’ (President) Obama said at the White House, pausing at times to gather himself and brush back tears.

“Fighting back more tears, Obama — a father of two daughters — pointed out that most of the victims were ‘beautiful little kids’ from the ages of 5 to 10, and ‘had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.’”

These were very caring and emotional words from our president.

Let us pray that President Obama will be so moved by the tragic killing of 20 defenseless little children in Connecticut, that he will rethink his position on abortion, the killing of America’s defenseless little unborn children.

There have been 55,808,387 of America’s babies lost to abortion in the last 40 years since the Supreme Court legalized abortion on Jan. 22, 1973. They were not killed by bullets, but by “choice.” Not killed in a public place where TV cameras and reporters gather to tell us about their tragic deaths; but in government-funded killing centers which legally for profit kill more than 3,300 every day.

Sadly, Obama has no tears for the lives of these babies. He voted twice against providing them medical treatment in case they accidentally survived an abortion. Like the children killed today in Connecticut, America’s aborted unborn children are also “beautiful little kids” who “had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.”

Our hearts are broken today and every day. America should mourn its babies.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
