President Obama, while crying over gun violence, needs to learn to shed tears for the unborn, too, says a pro-life activist.
Judie Brown of American Life League says the president was a hypocrite for shedding a tear over violence in the United States, when he announced executive action on gun laws at a Tuesday press conference.
"When the root cause of all of that violence is killing babies in the womb," she says.
Not only does President Obama advocate that, Brown says, but he advocates for giving more federal dollars to the nation's biggest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.
President Obama shed a tear during his speech, when he recalled the first-graders killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.
Yet pro-lifers and conservatives have pointed out that Obama, when an Illinois state senator, repeatedly voted against legislation that would have forced doctors to attempt to save the life of an infant that survives an abortion.
Obama claimed at the time that he would have voted for the pro-life law if it contained a "neutrality clause," and he claimed that pro-lifers were lying by claiming that it did.
