Dear Editor:

Modern liberalism is the cancer of our times, something obscure or hard to understand.

A growing number of Democrats are pushing further left on abortion. Building a wall is immoral but killing a baby is OK. At 22 days, there's a heartbeat. You look back over the last century, close to 100 million babies have been terminated.

Nazi German effort — framed as a euthanasia program — to kill incurably ill, physically or mentally disabled, emotionally distraught, and elderly people. Adolf Hitler initiated a mandate in 1939 to kill anyone deemed to have a "life unworthy of living." Killing continued covertly until the military defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945.

Actor Kevin Sorbo's comments came after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law the "Reproductive Health Act," a bill John Stonestreet and G. Shane Morris of BreakPoint called "the most radically pro-abortion state-level initiative in recent memory" and after Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran introduced a bill that would allow abortions up to the moment of birth. Virginia's governor, Ralph Northam, suggestion "that a baby born alive could be 'kept comfortable' and then resuscitated if that's what the mother and the family desired — the implication being that the baby could be left to die if the family decided they did not want to keep their child," reported

"First New York, and now a proposed Virginia bill that would legalize abortion up to the moment of birth," tweeted Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin. "This is a sad commentary on the culture of death that continues to creep insidiously sly into the laws of our country." Unknown

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has repeatedly called on Congress to secure our borders and protect the American people, but Congress has refused to provide funding for a wall along the southern boarder between the United States and Mexico. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-California, even called Trump's proposed border wall "immoral," a difference between the then-incoming Democratic party-led house and the White House, which led to the government shutdown. President Trump has since suggested he "may" use "emergency power" to build a wall, but that he would rather "do it through negotiated process" reported

Auschwitz is gone, but as long as this attitude remains with us we shall not be safe from the criminal indifference to life at its core.
