Like most of you, I sat transfixed over the past two weeks watching breaking and ever changing news about the civil war in Syria. We were rightfully horrified by the allegations that chemical weapons were used against their own people including 200 children. Would we use military force that may lead us into another war? Those arguing for a strike kept emphasizing the 200 children killed! As I watched I could not escape the hypocrisy that those who were voicing the loudest concern for the Syrian children were the strongest defenders of abortion on demand throughout all nine months of pregnancy in our own country . in 2012, they also allocated 542 million of our tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider!
Planned Parenthood's own research arm, The Guttmacher Institute, in their latest report (2008 ) estimates that 1.21 million abortions occur here every year. This includes both chemical and surgical abortions. This is over 3,000 per day. Where is the outcry? Where is the red line?
