If only kids got the same attention as the abortion issue

Posted by:

I once thought it was just me, but I now see there are others out there who are concerned. Someone I respect very much has confronted the problem.

What’s the issue?  The amount of time and energy we spend in heated, vein popping, face reddening, take-no-prisoners argument about abortion in comparison to the time and effort we spend on child abuse. It’s as if we’re more concerned with the value of a fetus than we are with the life of toddlers who are physically abused and killed by adults. Ponder this: how much news do you read about the abortion issue, and how much do you read about abused kids? The comparison is way lopsided.

I would say more, but my words can’t compare with what Leonard Pitts wrote yesterday.
