LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Saline abortion is a chemical weapon
President Obama has warned Syria that the country would face consequences if it uses chemical weapons. He sounds pretty firm, right? You would thus think that Mr. Obama is against chemical weapon use. But I say that he does not oppose all chemical weapon use and, in fact, supports one in particular: saline abortion.
This injection into the womb of the mother causes the lungs and skin of the unborn baby to burn severely, leading to its death. Sounds like torture, right? I thought Mr. Obama opposed torture. Oh, that’s right — unborn babies don’t count as human beings because of their size and location.
Melissa Ohden is a survivor of a failed saline abortion. Go to melissaohden.com to read her story and learn about her pro-life activism. If it were up to Mr. Obama, Ms. Ohden would have been left for dead after she was born alive. She wouldn’t have been given medical care. As a state senator, Mr. Obama opposed Illinois’ Born Alive Infant Protection Act. He can come up with excuses why he voted this way, but the truth speaks loudly.
Before we worry about Syria’s president, let’s point a finger at our own.
