Jan. 22 marked 40 years of legalized abortion. Jan. 21 our liberal president was blessed with a second term in office. His words to America have violated the founding principles upon which our great nation was established. The president shed tears at the Newtown tragedy, but his legacy the day after his inauguration is tarnished by his stand on abortion, late-term abortion. He cried over the death of 20 innocent children in Newtown but he takes no responsibility for the daily carnage that takes place in America's abortion clinics. Obama's legacy is being tainted by the 55 million unborn children who have been sacrificed at the altar of human and political expediency.
The president cried over 20 children who died in Newtown but he is oblivious to the 26,813 abortions that take place every week in America. The president claims to be a champion of the disadvantaged in America. He should ask himself who speaks for the millions of unborn children who have no voice.
I pray God will open his heart to understand the true meaning of love.
