Letter: It's weird to bomb Syria for gassing children while U.S. allows abortions

September 11, 2013 

President Obama's sense of logic and morality seem really weird to me. He has made a huge effort trying to get agreement from just about everybody to bomb Syria because Assad had gassed about 1,400 people, including about 400 children, which is despicable, of course. However, at the same time Obama has been supporting the right to an abortion, which results in the termination of more than 1 million pregnancies a year in the U.S.

If this isn't sick and despicable, I don't know what is. Talk about the need for punishment; who is worse?
