I’ve worked in the highway construction industry for over 30 years. In today’s economy, courtesy of you know who, my job can be very stressful, especially with the margins I have to bid jobs at in order to insure that my employer has enough work to keep his employees working. After a particularly stressful day today I began to wonder if feeling stressed out about anything is really necessary. I was allowed to be born. I’m in charge of my life and I control my actions and how I respond to any set of circumstances.
I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m alive. Last year Planned Parenthood, with your endorsement and approval, decided that 334,000 babies’ luck had run out. Every one of these living human beings was innocent and deserved the opportunity to live their lives. As a result, we will never know what contribution each and every one of these living children could have made to humanity.
Mr. President, as you would know if you had read any of my previous letters, last night was my weekly ‘grandson night.’ The world stands still on Thursday night and it’s all about my grandson. He’s one of the lucky ones too. He was allowed to be born, as will his little brother in September. Watching my grandson as he joyfully experiences all of life’s amazing gifts is my inspiration to follow my calling to fight for the lives of all our unborn children. Sir, it’s really not that difficult; you just let life do what life does. You protect every life like it’s your own and you respect the Right for every life to run its natural course from conception to natural death.
Today Planned Parenthood killed nearly 1,000 babies and tomorrow they’ll do the same. People like me will continue to write letters of protest to people like you and people like you will continue to ignore our letters; and life for us lucky ones will go on. That’s not good enough for me. Mr. President, every unborn child is at the mercy of us lucky ones. The lucky ones on the pro-abortion side are determined to kill as many children as they can for as much money as they can make. The lucky ones on my side don’t want anything for our efforts other than every unborn child being allowed to be born, just like we were.
Sir, you could end the killing with one speech, with one stroke of the pen, with one expression of support for the pro-life movement. You can save the American taxpayers over half a billion dollars a year simply by defunding Planned Parenthood.
Mr. President; it’s your move.
