‘Save one child’

EDITOR: After the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre President Obama said, “If we can ‘save even one child’ we should take that step.”

Every year we kill over 1 million children through our abortion policies. Mr. President, if you are urging us to take one step to, “save even one child” shouldn’t we (you) at least take “baby steps” to save millions of children?

    By Obama's logic then, I guess we should expect him to issues an executive order banning automobiles. Car crashes are the #1 cause of death for all youths, age 5-24 and the #2 cause of death for youths ages 1-4. And cars are not even constitutionally protected. http://www.cdc.gov/injury/wisqars/pdf/10LCID_Unintentional_Deaths_2010-a.pdf

    Out of all the murders that Kermit Gosnell has performed he has only be charged with 7, of which 3 have recently been dropped in the court. Planned Parenthood was aware of what this animal was doing and did not intervene. These were babies that were breathing on the table and he murdered them. This Friday, Obama will be the guest keynote speaker at the Planned Murder Gala. Remember back in July 2012 when Obama said "I've got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about VALUES and MORALS. But if they make a mistake. I don't want them PUNISHED with a baby." So it's OK with him if his daughters do the deed and then abort/murder his GRANDKIDS. This man and his wife are sick. Separate from forcible rape, incest or the life of a mother, abortionist and their supporters are murderous cowards! A lot of people believe it's OK to suck the brains out of a life because it's still in the womb and can't defend itself. They believe that a baby is not a baby until it's born and breathing. That unborn baby in a mother's womb is on life support systems while developing. It cannot breath on it's own, it cannot eat on it's own but it is still a living being. It is no different than having someone that is in a coma on life support systems in a hospital. Should we pull the life support system plugs on everyone that can't breath on their own or can't feed themselves? I remember years ago that prior to getting your drivers permit you had to pass a driver training class. In that class, one of the requirements was to watch numerous and very graphic videos of what can happen in a car accident. It gave everyone a very good mental picture of what can happen and served as a reminder for many years. If the pro abortion/murder advocates including the Obama's were to watch just a few videos of this heinous and barbaric act, I think they would come to their senses if they have any. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    DB - It's not as bad as you assert. One of the three dropped charges has been reinstated - LINK - The judge in the Kermit Gosnell murder trial admitted today he made an error when dropping one of the charges against the abortion practitioner " . . . Baby C, who was killed in an abortion-infanticide when he was a victim of an attempted abortion but was born alive and tossed in a shoe box, with Gosnell staffers confirming they saw him breathing for 20 minutes.

    Phil, very descriptive article. Don't even need a picture to envision the horrors that went on there. "Planned (murderers)Parenthood" and Obama should be held accountable as well. It's terrible to think about how many more cases that were not brought up due to lack of evidence. It's also terrible to think about how many more of these death shops are operating. Pennsylvania has the death penalty. But my hope would be that this coward murderous scumbag gets thrown in prison so that the inmates will get him.

    Today Obama decided to go ahead with his big speech at the Planned Parenthood/Murder Organizations gala event. Payback for the liberal Komen women votes. Open borders and amnesty for immigrant votes. Life time government entitlements for more votes. This guy really knows how to work it.

    At the Murder GALA Obama said "every woman should be able to make their own health decisions". Wow, I entirely agree with that for the exception of when there is another life onboard and that other life can't speak for itself. What about every man being able to make his own health decisions? What if a woman or man's DECISION was not wanting a damn thing to do with BIG GOVERNMENT'S DECISION to force OBAMANATIONCARE on us? Where's our health decision on that? He's a frigin idiot!
