After you finish your pitch tonight for starting an unconstitutional war with Syria, take a few minutes to review the 14th Amendment to our Constitution. Since you seem to have either lost or discarded your copy, allow me to refresh your memory. The 14th Amendment states the following:”nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Therein lies the pro-life movement’s case for asserting personhood for every unborn child to have begun at the moment of its conception. And therein lies the reason why you and your friends at Planned Parenthood are fighting tooth and nail to prevent states from passing personhood laws. Justice Harry Blackmun, the deciding vote for Roe v Wade, even conceded in his majority opinion that acknowledging the personhood of an unborn child would grant it human rights, and in his words; “If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.”
Codifying an unborn human being’s right to life, the same right to life that all human beings are endowed by their Creator with, will end abortion in America. This is the abortion industry’s nightmare scenario and has them sleeping in, of all things, the fetal position as they toss and turn, worrying about how they will make a living if they have to stop killing babies for money.
Mr. President, your recent actions, inaction, and world class attempts to delegate responsibility for your ineptness to others has proven once again that morality, courage of conviction, and regard for the welfare of your fellow human beings are concepts that you don’t have a firm grasp on. Don’t get discouraged. I believe that it’s never too late to change one’s life and listen to that little voice in the back of your head that will always give you the right answer as long as you’re willing to listen and move forward with boldness and purpose. Listen to it and do the right thing. Fight for the lives of America’s unborn children just like they’re yours, because in the big scheme of things they’re all ours.
Stop denying that every unborn child at every stage of its life is a living human being that has the same right to life as every other human being that was ever conceived. Commit to fighting for the basic human rights, including life, for all our children.
As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com. I’ll be happy to publish your unedited replies from whatever staffer you delegate the task to.
