The words of President Barack Obama on Dec. 16, Newtown, Conn.: "This is our first task -- caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged. And by that measure, can we truly say, as a nation, that we are meeting our obligations? Can we honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep our children -- all of them -- safe from harm?"

Words to consider as we approach the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Who is willing to stand up for those who have no voice? The weakest of our society?

Stand up for all of our children -- all of them.

- Jennifer Feeney, LaPorte
