The day of the Las Vegas shooting, two U.S. representatives refused to acknowledge a moment of silence for the victims because of the Republican Party’s views on gun control. Doing such a thing when so many are grieving reflects a profound callousness toward the sacredness of life.
How do we know that? The next day, both representatives voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, H.R. 36, which would ban abortions from being performed 20 weeks or more after fertilization, except when the pregnancy is a result of reported rape or reported incest against a minor, or is necessary to save the life of the mother.
Out of a heart indifferent to the killing of innocent babies in the womb comes indifference toward the innocents killed in our streets. And that’s a problem gun control can’t fix.
