If you are really concerned about dead children you should do something about the unborn children being killed by mommies by the millions. The mothers womb should be the safest place in the world for children, instead in America it is the most dangerous.
And what do you do to prevent "children being killed by mommies by the millions"?

And what do you do for those children who are born into a family who doesn't want them. The ones who are tortured, sexually abused, murdered, and go to bed everynight hungry?

Hhhhmmm?

I agree, and would venture a wager with these hypocrites that if children would be saved from a mass murder gun nut by someone with a gun they and the NRA would be pasting these pages with that news for political gain.

So yes, they are hypocretes they would be "dancing a political jig" with that so called good news.

I believe in taking care of my own family, and the rest of the citizens should do the same. Too civilized for you? Why should anyone else care if these women conceive children while they are drunk, or too high to say no. I have no use for the dregs of society. Obviously they don't either. We are all born the same, and they have the same freedoms as everyone else. Education is the answer, but that is too much trouble for so many poor people. Thank God for women like Ben Carson's mother that insisted he become educated. She produced a reknowned Doctor, and reknowned Scientist. How could she do that when so many others refuse to learn? Democrats cannot accept an example like that in the W H.

Exactly! Dr. Carson is the antithesis to the Left's "professional victim" mentality. God forbid if a black man ever becomes successful by his own merits. He's got my vote should he ever decide to run for the big chair.

The American people so thirst for the leadership of a man like Dr Carson. Pray every day that he is called to take on the satanic left in this country. Just imagine the type of highly educated people he would surround himself with, people who can lead us out of this awful mess the Democrats are creating.

I would not exclude the Republicans from the demolition derby we call America.

If you're going to reply to my post, please do not delete parts of my opinions.

That would be great if there were enough people who would adopt these children but do you realize how many children are of adoptive catagories who cannot find permanent homes. Foster homes are not even able to handle the masses of unwanted children.

Do not get me wrong I for the most part do not believe abortion is a good thing, in fact, being around the educational systems I sometimes see what unwanted children live or die with.

So you say "few"? What would be a sufficient number of dead children before your opinion would change? 100, 200, 300, 400, 1000, 2500.

How many?

In my opinion, that last statement is Unamerican. You may be wealthy where you would be able to pay for education for your children, or pay for toll roads whenever you drive on highways, or have your own military protection. Most Americans cannot afford these luxuries, that is why this great country is great because we all {some} hope and work for fellow americans.

What of those who cannot provide for themselves {mentally deficient, physically handicapped, injured veterans} would you still have the same theory on helping only your family members?

If so, that is why many believe republicans only wish to care for their own and to hell with the rest of Americans.

Now you in favor of gutting the first and second Amendments.

Why don't you grab a copy of the Constitution and delete all the sections you do not personally like and every one else in the country will goose step behind you.

You have your opinions on what the constitution regulates and I have mine. With that said who is wishing for the "goosesteppers"?

I'd wager you would believe the writers believed if a gun nut could kill 20 children in minutes with a hand held weapon they would not have had doubts or actions?

I would guess you also might be referring to my comment on the religion issue. If you believe Jim Jones would have been legal in his actions under your constitution beliefs then so be it.
