To the editor:

As I watched the president wipe away a tear in announcing his new gun legislation, I wondered, “Is this  the same man who proclaimed, ‘God bless Planned Parenthood’”?

Though President Obama’s compassion for the victims of Sandy Hook is commendable, what a tremendous disconnect to his callous support of an organization that kills, mutilates, and profits from the dirty business of abortion.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of deaths by guns in 2013 was 11,208, while deaths by Planned Parenthood numbered over 329,000 in 2015 (almost 30 times more).

If our president is sincere about reducing deaths by violence, he should start by making abortion illegal.
