LETTER: Newtown not America’s only national tragedyForty years of slaughtering these babies who will never have a chance to grow up to do anything.

To the Editor:
I’m looking back and pondering some of the things said and done concerning the massacre in Connecticut, especially when President Obama remarked of it on TV. He said things like, “those children will never have a chance now to grow up to have a job or career, get married and have children, go to college,” etc., and he was right about all those things.
But when he said that I was taken aback, shocked in fact. I thought maybe I was at a Right to Life or Lutherans for Life meeting to hear remarks like that, because that is what happens to all those babies who are massacred by abortions; 3,200 each and every day in this country. What about them?
Don’t get me wrong. It was indeed a tragedy and I mourned like everyone else. On Jan. 23, we will have the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. Forty years of slaughtering these babies who will never have a chance to grow up to do anything. Just think of the ramifications of that. Fifty-five plus million who could have been taxpayers or voters or any number of things. That is why it seemed so strange to me for his remarks, President Obama many times voted in favor of abortions at most any age. So as for me, the president has blood on his hands also.
In perspective you could say the shooter was just doing abortions. The only difference is the victims were of varying ages, but no matter born or unborn, all are humans created by God and precious in his sight.
Seems like since 1973 we have slowly become a nation obsessed with death.
Wake up people, God will not withhold his wrath forever. The day is coming.
