Guantanamo and Planned Parenthood: Can You Close One And Not The Other?

President Obama signed an order today which could close the doors of the detention center atObama Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“The message that we are sending the world is that the United States intends to prosecute the ongoing struggle against violence and terrorism and we are going to do so vigilantly and we are going to do so effectively and we are going to do so in a manner that is consistent with our values and our ideals,” the president said.

Consistent with our values and ideals?  Well then, perhaps he ought to sign an executive order closing the doors of abortion clinics, especially those that receive tax dollars for their “services,” such as Planned Parenthood.  After all, if there is a problem with torturing adult terrorists, then surely there is a problem with killing defenseless babies.  Does the President not see the inconsistencies of standing against inhumane torture while with the same pen endorsing the expansion of abortion services both nationally and internationally?

So close Guantanamo, President Obama, but be sure you fight torture and unjust killing on all fronts, including those in our own cities.
