After President Barack Obama made the symbolic political gesture of leaving an open seat at the State of the Union speech for victims of gun violence, Iowa Congressman Steve King, left his gallery seat open for the 57 million babies who have been victimized by abortion in the United States since Roe v. Wade.

As far as we know, Obama has never shed a single tear for even one of the more than 9 million babies aborted under his watch. He is the most pro-abortion president ever.”

King remarked, “Obama twisted the ‘Allah Akbar’ … into an anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment tirade.” King left his own seat on the House floor empty during the speech, saying, “I will be in the Member’s chapel praying for God to raise up a leader whom he will use to restore the Soul of America.”
