In his speech on Syria, the President appealed to what he called his “friends on the left,” saying,
“I ask you to reconcile your belief in freedom and dignity for all people with those images of children writhing in pain, and going still on a cold hospital floor. For sometimes resolutions and statements of condemnation are simply not enough.”
It strikes me as painfully hypocritical to argue for the safety of children from chemical attack in another country when (especially among those on the left) we fiercely defend the legal right to abort millions of babies in this country.
In a country whose laws endorse the torture and dismembering of babies in their mother’s womb, how should our outcry be heard against another country who uses chemical weapons on their children?
