In New York State there have been 53,925 deaths from COVID. In 2017 there were 105,380 abortions.
In California there have been 66,247 deaths from COVID and in 2017 California had 132,680 abortions.
When one looks at these numbers we have to ask why we are not putting as much effort into stopping abortion as we are trying to stop COVID? Some in our government seem to think we should even be paying to put the unborn to death. We can see that many of those who want to close down cities and states to save lives that could be lost to COVID are the same ones who want to take the lives of the unborn.

On the weekend of April 11, 2021 Father Robert Grosch, the parish priest at Saint Patrick Co-Cathedral in Billings announced his upcoming retirement, effective June 30th. I am excited to announce that I'll be appointed as the new pastor, effective July 1. I am excited to be returning to Saint Patrick. This was my first assignment as a newly ordained priest. Please pray for Father Bob as he transitions away from active parish ministry. Please pray for me as I prepare to make the move to return to Saint Patrick. Pray for Deacon John Pankratz who will be ordained to the priesthood on June 24th and will become the parochial vicar at Saint Patrick. Father Garrett Nelson will assume the role of pastor at our present assignment at Saint Mary in Livingston.

Obama says response to shootings has become too routine in wake of Oregon college shooting | Fox News
"I'd ask the American people to think about how they can get our government to change these laws and to save lives and to let young people grow up, and that will require a change of politics on this issue," Obama said.
He states in his speech, "We've become numb to this."
How easily he ignores the fact that over 3000 babies are aborted each day. We have become numb, and it starts with letting those babies be murdered every day. It continues when we see videos of Planned Parenthood selling body parts and think that it is no big deal. We are numb to the who business because it happens in a room, outside of the reports from the press.

I'd like to offer a few suggestions about why this may be happening.
Let's start with abortion. When we think that it is ok the kill the most defenseless in our society, is it any wonder that we care little about others as well.
What about the break down of the family? A family should be made up of a male father, a female mother, and children. Today there are many families that are fatherless because of a lack of commitment on the part of fathers. Without a mother and a father to form and discipline children, they are often adrift in their formation into caring adults.
Oh, and then there is contraception. Families are limiting themselves to one, maybe two children, and then spoil them excessively. The children tend to think that everything is about them and their wants. Children from larger families, with a mother and a father, tend to learn a little bit more about sacrifice and service instead of being pampered.
These are just a few quick thoughts. It is not a well developed blog post, but if I don't post what I've typed now, I might not get back to finish it.
Pray for our families, pray for life, pray for holy marriages, pray for our country.

According the the Huffington Post online, President Obama said the following:
Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, again according to the Huffington Post, said the following:
"Any death of this sort is a tragedy, any shooting involving multiple victims is a tragedy," he said. "There is something particularly heartbreaking about death happening at a place in which we seek solace and we seek peace.
"I've had to make statements like this too many times. Communities have had to endure tragedies like this too many times," he continued. "Once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun. ... We as a country will have to reckon with the fact that this type of mass violence does not happen in other advanced countries."
"We can have common sense gun reforms that keep weapons out of the hands of criminals and the violently unstable while respecting responsible gun owners," she said. "The stakes are too high, the costs are too dear, and I am not and will not be afraid to keep fighting for common sense reforms, and along with you, achieve those on behalf of all who have been lost because of this senseless gun violence in this country."
As I have asked before after shootings, where is the outrage for the 3,000+ babies aborted every day, most of whom are black?
