    The “Slaughter of the Innocents” will continue to thrive as long as pregnant women and leaders of the world refuse to recognize the inviolable value of the innocent unborn child. Since abortion became legal throughout the world, human life has lost its intrinsic value and is no longer worthy of respect. Abortion, is the “Culture of Death,” coined by Pope John Paul II. It has taken over any and all civilized behavior in a world deluged by unfulfilled love, anger, sorrow, and pain. If a mother can commit a most heinous crime of killing her own child, what’s to stop a disturbed person from murdering his own mother and others. President Obama is continuing to feed the innocent to the slaughter, we are reaping what he is sowing.

    Thank you

    Excellent post, Mary! There is definitely a correlation to the premise that if one can kill the most defenseless of God's creatures(ie. the unborn child) then everyone is fair game. Such a tragedy, One must pray that this environment changes.

    What a terrible tragedy which has touched the entire world.
    The absolute insanity of this leaves us all shocked and with no words.

    The world truly is living in a 'dark period of history'– when life means nothing to many.
    I believe the words of Mother Teresa of Calcutta who said when a mother can kill her very own child – what is there to stop men/women killing each other.
    We are witnessing humanity at an all time low —- as God has been pushed out of the picture.. then what sense does it all have without God – .. none….
    Am I then shocked – yes – but am I surprised – no — and the answer, regardless of what Mr. Obama says, is not 'taking away guns' – the answer is to stop abortion — and to start valuing lives and families !!!!!!!!
