Last year, on September 11, I was reliving the emotions I had felt 12 years earlier. I couldn’t believe it had been 12 years since Islamic terrorists attacked my country and killed 3,000 of my fellow citizens. On the eve of 9/11/14 I have a lot to be thankful for; 2 wonderful grandsons and a clear vision of how I want to spend the rest of my life. Tomorrow, as America mourns for those we lost on 9/11, Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry will be busy killing tiny humans in their mothers’ wombs. I will not allow their actions to go unchallenged and I will not rest until our nation stops allowing our unborn children to be killed for a fee.
Remember how you felt on 9/11 and resolve that by 9/11 of next year you will have taken positive, measurable actions in service to your fellow man. Do this in tribute to those both born and unborn who died senseless deaths on September 11, 2001.

Where were you 12 years ago today? I was standing in the break room at my office with my wife and a friend watching the horrible events unfold on a tiny black & white TV. We watched as a crystal clear Fall morning ended with the deaths of nearly 3,000 of our fellow human beings; all at the hands of a small group of radical Islamists; all without reason; and all but the terrorists having begun their last day on earth not knowing it would be their last. Over 3,000 unborn children also began their day on 9/11, safely nestled in their mother’s wombs; not knowing that it would be their last.
Ms. Richards, the 3,000 victims who died on 9/11 died horrible, painful deaths in senseless acts of violence. The thousands of unborn American children who died on 9/11 in America’s abortion mills also died horrible, painful deaths in senseless acts of violence. The victims of terrorism that fateful day were killed in the name of a radical ideology. The victims of America’s abortion mills that same day died in the name of a radical ideology. While the terrorists’ victims that day were considered the enemy by their killers, the victims of abortion on 9/11 were considered expendable by their killers and killed for money.
In the twelve years since 9/11 America’s abortion industry has killed over 14,000,000 unborn children. Planned Parenthood has killed about 4,000,000 of them. Memorials will be held across the world today for the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Today will be business as usual for America’s abortion industry as another 3,300 babies will be killed. No memorials will be held for these tiny victims and the only moments of silence that will be observed will be the silence that comes as each tiny heart stops beating.
Ms. Richards, on 9/12 Americans were united in their outrage over the terrorist attacks the day before. We were also united in our resolve that our country would carry on, stronger than ever. I remember how I felt that day. I was proud to be an American and proud to have served my country in its military. I was determined that terrorism would not change my life and willing to fight to protect my family and my country.
I’m proud to be an American today and determined to fight to my last breath to end the killing of our unborn children. America’s abortion industry is no less brutal than the terrorists in my eyes. While the terrorists kill their victims by stoning, beheading, and blowing them up, Planned Parenthood and its colleagues kill America’s children by ripping them apart, poisoning them, and suctioning their brains from their living bodies.
Terrorists place no value on human lives. The abortion industry places no value on the lives of unborn children aside from the fees they will receive for killing them. The world will never be without terrorism until the world is free of abortion.
