And they Called Vietnam Vets Baby Killers!

Yesterday I prayed over a Vietnam vet dying of MLS. He didn’t want much, just time to pass on his faith to his grandchildren, time to see the boys rooted in their faith. That’s his priority and how he was raised. His faith, family, church and country were important. His country called and he answered. Most of his life he served his church. As a grand knight of the Knights of Columbus he helped to build a church and served many years as a lector and extraordinary minister. He’s also prayed outside abortion clinics.

Ironically, as a Vietnam vet he’s heard the words baby killer applied as an expletive to those who answered the call to serve in Vietnam. Funny that our brave soldiers were cursed as baby killers yet at this year’s democratic conventions women bragged about their abortions, about killing their children and received standing ovations from many of the people who were involved in protesting the Vietnam War. How far have we declined morally! How terribly we have changed!

They protested the war because too many American boys were dying, fighting for freedom. 58,000 + died in that war and maybe 2,000,000 Vietnamese. Well 58,000,000 + babies have been killed by abortionists and that is not enough. The Democratic Party wants to make it easier to have an abortion. They want you the taxpayer to pay for free abortions. Have we’ve gone crazy? Have the Democrats gone nuts?

I get sick every time I see them criticizing the Republicans and until Bill Clinton vetoed the partial birth abortion ban I was one. I voted for Clinton, McGovern, Ted Kennedy and Jesse Jackson. Except for their extreme positions on abortion I would have voted for President Obama and Hillary. I have always been liberal. I’ve spent 40 months as a volunteer in Appalachia and most of my teaching career in the inner city. I’ve taught about the Vietnam War, Black History and Women’s History. One of the courses I taught included 8 weeks on the Civil Rights Movement. John Lewis, Diane Nash and Medgar Evers were heroes to me.

Yet the Democrats sicken me. They’ve thrown away the moral high ground. How can they criticize the other party when they are pushing to kill more babies? How much lower can you go? We kill babies not fetuses not masses of tissue. These are real children with the entire DNA needed to develop into full fledged human beings. Stalin killed 20,000,000 in his programs. Hitler killed 12,000,000 in the Holocaust and we were outraged. The world was shocked and condemned both. We’ve killed 58,000,000. How dare we criticize any nation for anything they do! We kill babies and 58,000,000 isn’t enough for the Democrats! And we claim to be good Christians. How insane is that?

How dare they criticize anyone!
