LETTER TO THE EDITOR: To liberals, killing is only OK in the womb

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Liberals would have us all believe that the right to have guns leads to killings, such as the terrible massacre of little children last month in Newtown, Conn. What these people fail to see is that something they avidly support, abortion, has a great deal to do with the nationwide disrespect for life.

Mother Teresa said, "And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, then how can we tell other people not to kill one another?" That's a great question, isn't it? How can our nation allow innocent babies to be killed in what is supposed to be the safest place on Earth -- the womb -- and then turn around and lecture citizens on gun control?

In a way, supporters of abortion -- such as President Obama, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi -- are culpable in today's culture of disrespect.
