Even though we live on different sides of the country we’re united as Americans. As a pro-life American I dream of a day when all our unborn children are allowed to exercise the same Right to life that you and I treasure. By now I’m sure you’ve figured out that we are on opposite sides of the debate when it comes to abortion. In spite of our differences, I’m sure we can agree as parents and grandparents that saving our pain-capable unborn children from the indescribable agony of abortion is the right thing to do.
Senator, the House has done its part and passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act; now it’s your turn. No reasonable person can justify the torturous killing of a living, but unborn 5 month old child. You have spoken out in the past against waterboarding and subjecting murderous terrorists to physical and mental discomfort. Please speak out now against killing innocent children.
Majority Leader Reid has indicated that he may allow a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The least you can do is consider this bill with an open mind and an open heart. Think of your own children and imagine the void in your life if they had never been given the chance to be born.
Senator Boxer, at 20 weeks old and older, unborn children are killed with a procedure known as dilation and evacuation. This procedure is performed by literally ripping the living, pain-capable child apart, limb by limb. No child should ever have to die in this manner; and as a politician who has spoken out against torture, I can’t imagine how you could justify your opposition to a bill designed to protect them. You and your fellow Senators have a chance to make history with this bill and the opportunity to save untold thousands of innocent children.
I plan to spend the rest of my life fighting for the lives of our unborn children. No child should fall asleep tonight nestled safely in its mother’s womb, only to suffer a ghastly death tomorrow at the hands of an abortionist. Please join me in protecting these children.
Senator Boxer, I respectfully request that you speak out in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and vote for its passage in the Senate. America’s children deserve no less.
