My number 1 litmus test for determining whether to vote for a political candidate is where they stand on abortion. Since you failed miserably on this test, you never did and never will get my vote. My second criterion is selflessness. Is the candidate willing to risk their political career by doing what is right even though it may be viewed as politically incorrect by government parasites and those who deem themselves to be society’s scorekeepers? You also fail miserably on this count, as do most of your colleagues on both sides of the aisle.
This is the dilemma of the pro-life movement and our country. Principled leaders are few and far between and courage of conviction is nowhere to be found. The abortion lobby and Planned Parenthood have you, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi in their pockets while all of you continue to feign your concern for America’s children. Without exception, every time your side is on the losing side of any issue your go to line is “it’s all about the children.”
Mr. President, for me it really is all about the children. While you’re throwing your 52nd celebrity music gala at the White House I’m wondering what I can do save my country’s unborn children. While you’re trying to shove ObamaCare up our, um down our throats I’m writing to your friends at Planned Parenthood trying to talk some sense into them. While you’re playing golf and hobnobbing in Martha’s Vineyard, America’s abortion mills continue to churn out over 3,000 dead children every day.
Mr. President, unless I’m missing something, the concept of public service is to actually serve the public. Is allowing over a million unborn children to be killed every year a public service? Is funneling over half a billion dollars in taxpayer money to the world’s largest abortion provider every year a public service? Is trotting out blithering idiots like Nancy Pelosi to insult the public’s intelligence with incomprehensible babbling in support of your positions a public service?
Mr. President, padlocking the doors of Planned Parenthood and shutting down America’s abortion industry will not only serve the public; it will increase the size of the public; by 1.2 million a year. Noodle this out Mr. President, over a million new citizens every year equals over a million potential new taxpayers every year. For a leftist ideologue like you what could be better? You have more people to tax and more people to rule under your thumb. Mr. President, if our nation continues to reject and kill our unborn children, we do so at our own peril.
Yesterday Pope Francis summed up the abortion debate much better than I ever could:” Every unborn child, though unjustly condemned to be aborted, has the face of the Lord, who even before his birth, and then as soon as he was born, experienced the rejection of the world.”
As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com. Reply to one. What do you have to lose?
