Your View: Support babies

WEBB CITY, Mo. — Lately, due to the upcoming election, Democrats have been claiming there is a war on women being waged by the Republicans.

I am totally shocked that the Democrats are not concerned about the atrocious war on defenseless babies in the mother’s womb. Some 55 million babies have been killed since Roe v. Wade was upheld in 1973.

As a born-again Christian, my conscience will not allow me to associate with the Democratic Party. The Democratic platform is for killing babies up until delivery.

While working in the Illinois Senate, our current president wouldn’t even sign a bill that to protect aborted babies who were born alive.

Christians unite. Vote for the party that supports defenseless babies.
