And what makes children's lives so important in the first place? Why would we think their lives are more important than our wives or husbands, brothers or sisters, parents or grandparents?

I have two grown daughters and I certainly value their lives and the life of my wife.
These idiots love to play the "for the children" game just like they love to play the race card when it suits their agenda.
Sorry, I don't buy it.
