Let’s protect our children

To the editor: 

I think we all agree that it was tragic that 20 young children died in the school shooting at Sunnybrook Elementary. We have heard the outcry of the media and political leaders since Dec.14.In a speech on gun control President Obama stated, “We must protect the most vulnerable”.

He also spoke about the fundamental rights of all people. January 22 was the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. Since then, 55 million vulnerable unborn babies have been murdered as a result of legalized abortions.What about the rights of these children? Where is the outcry from our president and the liberal news media?

I would hope that we could all agree that the deaths of these young children are also tragic. I pray that President Obama will truly work to protect the rights of all people.

The good news is that because of the pro-life movement, the number of active abortion clinics in America has dropped from 2100 in 1992 to just over 650 today. There are at least 85 crisis pregnancy centers in Minnesota as these crisis pregnancy centers began turning the corner with the use of ultrasounds, pro-life state legislation began to take hold and the Internet allowed the pro-life prospective to flourish; abortions have declined.

I thank our Heavenly Father for the gift of life and that we live in a free country where we are able to speak up for the rights of all people.
