I heard our President’s response to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. I heard his words. I saw him wiping a tear from the corner of his eye. I saw what he was trying to convey. I heard him say that he felt like any other parent in this nation about how sad it was that these 20 children were cut off before they had a chance to begin to live.
But I couldn’t help thinking about his callous feelings toward a baby that survives an abortion. I remember hearing him say that a baby in that situation should not be helped in any way. Nobody should be allowed to attempt to save the baby’s life or even hold or comfort the child as s/he is dying.
If you don’t know about this side of the man, research the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act and his actions as a senator in Illinois. You can start here. This Act is now federal law making it illegal to kill a baby that is born alive during an attempted abortion. But Senator Obama voted against this bill in the Illinois legislature even AFTER it passed unanimously at the federal level. He wants it to be legal to KILL a baby after it has been born alive.
Can a man who believes such a thing really feel the pain that a normal parent feels when a child dies? I question it.
