Clinton won’t protect the unborn

Dear Editor:

None matters more than babies in the womb of the mother for they’re helpless and entitled to tender loving care. If you doubt this, I suggest you read Psalm 139:13-15.

According to the statistics, 3 million abortions are preformed each year in the United States.

The muted voice of the churches today and the voice of liberal religion contribute little toward emphasizing the need for the protection of the unborn.

Carefully consider the positions of the two major political parties relative to abortion. The Democratic Party platform seeks to repeal the 1976 HYDE Amendment, so that federal funds can be used to pay for abortions. The platform says, “We will continue to stand up to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood”. Democrats support ratification of the United Nations efforts that affirm the reproductive rights to women globally. The GOP asserts the sanctity of human life. The child has a fundamental right to life, which cannot be infringed. The party supports a Human Life Amendment making clear that the 14th Amendment protections apply to children before birth, and it salutes states that require informed consent, parental consent, waiting periods, and clinic regulation.

Hillary Clinton loves to tell how she’s spent the better part of her life working for the wellbeing of all children. However, she forgot to tell how she stopped short when it came to the unborn.

Eight years of the Obama administration has been a near disaster at home and abroad. We cannot afford these policies to be continued under Hillary Clinton by electing her as president.

God Bless America
