Voice for life muzzled

The Spokesman-Review

Our Spokesman-Review reported that the U.S. president spoke and received an honorary degree at the Roman Catholic University of Notre Dame.

The president of the UND, John Jenkins, was instrumental in having Alan Keyes arrested and put in jail with others who protested this event. Keyes is pro-life and was in a peaceful demonstration against the evils of abortion. Obama is pro-death.

Keyes wanted to meet with Jenkins before the demonstration, but Jenkins did not respond to Keyes’ request. Why did Jenkins resort to the police, who arrested Keyes and put him in jail?

Keyes and others have a right to protest. We read in the Holy Bible in Luke 1:44, “For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.” God says, “Thou shalt not kill,” in Exodus 20:13. Keyes and others wanted to exalt the Bible position. The killing of the unborn is evil and wicked.
