Earth to PG

Regarding your Nov. 23 editorial "Earth to Rubio": How do you justify your double standard? When Barack Obama responded similarly to a question about the Earth's creation did you do an editorial about his unwillingness "to take on a question that is simple to answer in a fact-based world"?

If the truth be told, none know for a fact when the world began and the theories can't even be tested because you can't have a "do over." However, what is provable and has been accepted by scientists within the last 40 years is when life begins. Science is clear that human life begins at conception when a new human being with its own unique DNA is formed.

Yet, when Rick Warren asked Barack Obama, "When does a baby get human rights?" then-Sen. Obama refused to answer saying only it was above his "pay grade."

How scientific is that? Did you go after him for his unscientific answer? Of course not, because he agrees with you and supports the killing of the unborn even up to birth if the mother wants that baby dead.

You can advocate abortion acceptability, but that doesn't change the fact that by the time a woman has an abortion, there is a new unique beating heart within her. Abortion may be legal, but it is the taking of a new human life and that cannot be scientifically denied. Neither Sen. Rubio nor President Obama may know when the Earth began, but at least Sen. Rubio knows when life begins.
