In the context of the discussion of individual rights in the aftermath of the Connecticut school shootings and the call for new gun control laws, I am writing to suggest there is a larger, more deadly menace threatening the young in this country.
During the last forty years, around 50 million babies have been killed in this country without a trial, without a lawyer and without regard to their liberties. A society must protect the young. This is a hidden form of racism, since almost 37% of those killed are black. Women killed represent almost 50% of the total.
These murders are not protected by the constitution. They government sponsored and approved. Stop abortion if the deaths of the young are truly important to us as a society.
