"This is our first task, caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.
And by that measure, can we truly say, as a nation, that we’re meeting our obligations? Can we honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep our children, all of them, safe from harm?
Can we claim, as a nation, that we’re all together there, letting them know they are loved and teaching them to love in return?
Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?" -President Obama, Newtown, CT : 12.16.2012
As he continued saying that inaction on our part is inexcusable, I felt as though he must be building up to something. Surely, at any moment, as he is holding back tears over this atrocity, he is going to finally come out and say that he would no longer endorse a woman's right to kill her unborn child. Surely, he is about to say these unborn children also "deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose."
...but he didn't.
In answer to his rhetorical questions above, I must agree with how the president answered: "If we’re honest with ourselves, the answer’s no. We’re not doing enough. And we will have to change" because as the president said about the Newtown killings, so could also be said about abortions: "What choice do we have? We can’t accept events like this as routine."
So, we feel grief over the 20 children unjustly murdered last Friday, and we feel grief for the 3,100 unborn children unjustly murdered every day. Unfortunately, the latter is permitted by our government and no one wears ribbons in their honor.
One last note for anyone who has had an abortion:
The blood of Jesus is sufficient to pay for any blood that you have spilled. Turn to Him and find forgiveness. Hope in Him and find life.
And for the rest of you:
The blood of Jesus is sufficient to pay for your sins, which are still many. Turn to Him and find forgiveness. Hope in Him and find life.
