All lives matter


To the Editor:
We are so overwhelmed and shocked by all the terrible tragedies we hear about. They are happening in the United States, in Pakistan, Australia and elsewhere. They are carried out by terrorists or individuals with mental illness or fame seekers. They attack defenseless, innocent children. We’ve had way too many children slaughtered in their schools or homes by murderers.
Then we hear “Black lives matter,” which is true! Well, all lives matter. Unborn babies’ lives matter, too.
Schools are not the only place where children are attacked. The most dangerous place for children to be today is in their mothers’ wombs. They are being killed every single day by the thousands but that doesn’t reach the news. Have we become that immune to the plight of the unborn who are being aborted? They suffer just as surely as do the school children.
When our government ruled on abortion, it made a horrible mistake. I feel it’s the duty of our government to protect all people. We are the United States of America and should be a shining example to the rest of the world of how to take care of people, young and old.
God help us all.
