On Jan. 22, thousands of Americans traveled to Washington, D.C., for the 37th annual March for Life to protest against the U.S. Supreme Court's decriminalization of abortion. President Barack Obama, who campaigned on reaching out to his opponents, left the city rather than engage us in discussion. Apparently our president is willing to sit down with America's enemies but not those people in his own country with whom he disagrees.
President Obama did issue a statement after the March for Life had concluded in which he praised the Roe v. Wade decision, but did not acknowledge the well over 100,000 Americans who peacefully marched against abortion earlier on that very same day.
President Obama, when will you stop turning a blind eye to the weakest and most defenseless among us? In your campaign you told us that you would help "the least of these." President Obama, when will you acknowledge modern science, which has proved that a new human life exists at the moment of fertilization? While it is my Bible that encourages me to defend innocent life, it is my biology textbook that informs me of when life begins. A new video from the Endowment for Human Development (www.ehd.org) shows actual footage, taken inside the womb, of human embryos as young as six weeks' gestation. There can be no doubt that these are living human beings. President Obama, please defend these innocent lives!
