  • To the editor:
    Here we are, months after Lindsay Graham introduced the Pain Capable
    Unborn Protection Act, still waiting for Majority Leader Harry Reid to
    bring the life-saving bill to the floor.
    Why isn't this the number one priority of President Barack Obama's administration? Let me explain.
    Last week, Obama called in leaders of Congress for consultation on the escalating violence in Iraq. I'm wondering why this violence apparently receives priority over those who cannot defend themselves, like the innocent girls kidnapped by Boka Haram and the 18,000 or so unborn babies aborted after 20-weeks during a period when they can feel pain?
    Now, why should this be the number one priority? In the words of Mother
    Teresa from her 1994 National Prayer Breakfast speech, "If we can
    accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other
    people not to kill one another?"
    And she said, "Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion."
    So who exactly does the Obama administration think it is telling others
    to stop violence and their wars when the U.S. is responsible for legally
    killing our own innocent babies?
    Who are we to tell other nations not to torture others when we are legally torturing unborn babies by aborting them at a stage when they can feel pain? It's sick.
    Quotes were taken from a Priests for Life brochure on the 1994 Mother Teresa National Prayer Breakfast address.
