Senator Harry Reid

Monday night 163,204 fans attended the Redskins-Eagles and Chargers-Texans football games. That’s a lot of fans. America’s abortion industry will kill 163,204 unborn babies over the next 7 weeks. That’s a lot of dead children. Since you’ve delayed the Senate’s vote to authorize an attack on Syria to avenge the chemical weapons deaths of 1,400 civilians, including 400 children, you now have time to take up the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Incidentally, the 400 children killed in the attack are 2,900 less than will be killed in America’s abortion mills today.
Senator, you claim to be a devout Mormon. Where in The Book of Mormon does it decree that America’s unborn children may be killed on demand as long as you pay the killer to dispatch the child? Does it also say that faithful Mormons have an obligation to allow 1.2 million American children to be killed every year and that you should do nothing to end the killing? Senator Reid, doing nothing as millions of unborn children are killed can only mean that it is being done with your approval and consent.
The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will save about 15,000 babies from a grisly, painful death every year. You may think that 15,000 is a small number since you’re used to racking up debt by the $ trillions, but I contend that every child is priceless and deserving of our protection from the moment of conception. Senator Reid, as a father and grandfather just like me, I have no doubt that you would do whatever you had to in order to protect your children and grandchildren from harm. So why, sir, would you do anything less to protect any child?
Passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will only put a small dent in the number of abortions performed every year by Planned Parenthood and the rest of America’s abortion industry; but it’s a start. Senator, you’ve taken a stand against torturing terrorists. Take a stand now against torturing innocent children. The torture techniques you opposed for ruthless killers resulted in temporary discomfort and no lasting side-effects. The torture you allow on unborn children results in agonizingly painful deaths for the most innocent and vulnerable of human beings.
If you pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act you’ll get pushback from the President and the abortion industry. Late term abortions are a cash cow for Planned Parenthood and its cronies, and they won’t give it up without a fight. President Obama, the most abortion-friendly President in history, is firmly in their corner, for reasons that defy logic, and he’ll be fighting right beside them. Pass the bill. Override the veto, and do the right thing. America’s children will thank you.
