Senator Harry Reid
522 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510
September 3, 2013
Several weeks ago I wrote you asking that you bring the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to the Senate floor for debate and an up or down vote. As you know, the House passed this legislation on June 13, 2013. Since I haven’t heard back from you I can only assume one or more of the following things: 1. My letter was immediately fed into your shredder since key words such as pro-life and saving children don’t fit within your agenda. 2. The Zip Code on my letter indicated that I can’t vote for you so any issues I may deem important are of no concern to you. 3. Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby has already pressured/paid/coerced you into never letting this bill see the light of day. Although I’m not a betting man, I’m going with number 3, with honorable mentions for 1 & 2.
President Obama has stated that he will veto this bill if it ends up on his desk, so what do you have to lose by bringing it up for honest debate and then allowing a vote? Just so you know, I also wrote your fellow Senators, Mikulski, Cardin, and Boxer; and not a word from either of them. By the way, same result from multiple letters to the President. Is it something I said?
Senator, during your summer recess from August 5th to September 6th over 100,000 unborn children will die in America’s abortion mills. Sir, if 100,000 American children died from a preventable disease over the course of a month would your chamber show the same lack of concern? Senator Reid, it’s been estimated that the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will save at least 15,000 unborn, pain-capable children from agonizing deaths every year. Procedures such as Dilation and Evacuation, the abortion industry’s method of choice for killing babies at this stage of development, literally rip a child apart to remove it from its mother’s womb, and have no place in a world where every new life is endowed with the very same right to life that you and I are currently exercising.
Senator Reid, passing the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act won’t cost the American taxpayers a dime. All it will do is save at least 15,000 children from being brutally killed every year. If you disagree with me, say so and tell me what the downside is for saving the lives of innocent children.
America is currently lead by the most abortion-friendly President in our history. He’s against this bill for reasons that defy logic. With your endorsement, this bill can pass the Senate and then with enough votes from Senators and Congressmen of good conscience, the President’s inevitable veto can be over-ridden and thousands of children doomed to die a torturous death will be saved. Senator Reid, I’m begging you to do the right thing.
