Letter to Governor Perry #1

Governor Perry:

As the publisher of a pro-life blog, I seldom find myself in the position of writing a letter to someone I agree with.  This is one of those rare exceptions.  I’m writing to offer my congratulations to you for receiving the Texas Right to Life’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Governor, like you, I’m certain that a world without abortion is near.  The pro-life movement is making headway and principled leaders like you are taking a courageous stand against the pro-abortion lobby and the culture of death they represent.  Texas’s H. B. 2 is a model for the nation and the next in a long series of steps that will end abortion in America.  Sir, when Planned Parenthood has to pay protestors to fight against a bill that will save thousands of unborn children, you know you’re on the right side.

Governor Perry, character and grace walk hand in hand with honor and integrity.  These attributes are earned, not given.  Your very public expression of all these attributes speaks volumes about you as a man and serves as an inspiration to current and future leaders in a walks of life.  Sir, I can think of no higher calling than working to insure that every unborn child is allowed the most basic and priceless of all rights; the right to life.  You have fought and won the battles for our children and you are an inspiration for humble letter writers like me.

Every day I write letters to politicians and members of the abortion industry, and some days, for just a moment, I get frustrated.  The people I write to never answer, but frankly, I don’t expect them to.  It’s Ok though.  I know someone reads my letters; probably not the intended recipient, but someone reads them.  I know that one day, one of the people reading one of my letters will start to think about something I wrote and maybe I’ll change their mind.  A couple days ago I was wondering if what I’m doing will ever make a difference, and that’s when I came across the story saying you were “certain we will one day see a world without abortion.”  Governor, I don’t believe in coincidences, and I know that I was directed to stumble across your story for a reason. Just when I needed a little pick-me-up, there it was.  These things seem to be occurring more and more in my life lately and, like I said, I don’t believe in coincidences.

Governor Perry, I intend to do my part to end abortion in my country and the world; and I will continue to write letters until I can no longer write. I know you will continue to work with the pro-life movement for as long as it takes.  Today I’m more confident than ever that we will one day see a world without abortion.

Letter to President Obama #46

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave.  NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

September 19, 2013

Mr. President:

As quite possibly the worst President in our history, you’ve attained many milestones in your march towards the destruction of our constitutional Republic.  You’ve buried future generations under a mountain of debt, allowed Americans to be killed in Benghazi while you ignored their pleas for rescue, and violated the law by granting exemptions from ObamaCare to big business and your political cronies.  Since you have no problem overstepping the bounds of your authority, how about doing so to the benefit of America’s unborn children?

As the law of the land, Roe v Wade made it legal to have an unborn child killed in America.  Since you’re so adept at granting exemptions, how about exempting every baby from the constraints of Roe v Wade?  You already allow children to stay on their parent’s health insurance until age 26 so it only seems fair that you should also allow them to be born.  Mr. President, allowing our unborn children to be killed at a rate of 1.2 million a year is tantamount to a suicide pact between you and America’s abortion industry on behalf of our nation.

Sir, we are killing our future leaders, entrepreneurs, and innovators in numbers that dwarf any human disaster in the history of the world.  More importantly, we are violating a sacred trust with our children; a universally accepted trust that holds every life equally as priceless as any other.  Every unborn child represents the essence of innocence and pure potential, and deserves to be protected at all costs.  Allowing their slaughter to continue will only accelerate our nation’s death spiral and insure the demise of the world’s last great hope.

Mr. President, bending the rules is something you’re quite proficient at.  You and your friends on the left continue to declare gun-free zones and crazed killers continue to enter gun-free zones and shoot to their heart’s content, secure in the knowledge that their innocent victims won’t be shooting back.  Try declaring America an abortionist-free zone and save over a million children a year. Mr. President, think about it, what is the downside to saving over a million innocent lives every year?

Sir, 3 days ago you waived a provision of American law that prohibits the supply of weapons from the United States government to terrorists.  This is an impeachable offense and you know it.  Guess what? I don’t care.  My priorities are saving America’s children, and then I’ll worry about your abject incompetence and utter disregard for our Constitution and the rule of law.  You can change the world forever with a few strokes of your Presidential fountain pen. Do the right thing.  Step up and break some laws for a good cause; millions of innocent children.

As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com.  Should you choose to reply, I’ll publish it, unedited.

Letter to President Obama #45

The White House

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

September 18, 2013

Mr. President:

As part of my job I work with numbers all day; some really big numbers. At night, after I’ve finished working at my day job, the job that pays my bills, I punch-in for my night job; working to end abortion.  Unfortunately, I work with some really big numbers on my night job too; 56,000,000 babies killed since 1973, 3,300 killed every day, 1 killed every 26 seconds.  Mr. President, these numbers haunt me, and should horrify anyone who sees them.  Every one of these numbers represents a dead child; a child that was killed because now wasn’t the right time to have a baby, or because it had Down syndrome, or because the young mother didn’t want to disappoint her parents, or a myriad other choices that all required an unborn child to be killed.

Mr. President, my night job, an unpaid position, is the most rewarding job I’ve ever had.  I don’t have to worry about a budget or meeting a payroll.  I don’t have to deal with disgruntled employees or pinheads from the IRS.  Most people working 2 jobs dread checking in for the night shift.  I think about my night job all day and can’t wait to get started every night.  My night job is a labor of love and the only result I will accept is the sound of doors locking for the last time at Planned Parenthood and every abortion mill in America.

Mr. President, I take it personally every time another child dies at the hands of an abortionist.  I feel that I failed to protect every child that died today.  I’m committed to saving every child scheduled to die tomorrow, and tomorrow I’ll check in committed to save the ones scheduled to die the following day. Sir, every unborn child killed today was a member of my family and yours. Every frightened, confused mother entering an abortion clinic is intrinsically bound to you and me.

Mr. President, although I love my night job, I dream of the last night I’ll ever have to do it. I dream of a world that welcomes every new child as the gift that every one is.  I dream of the day I can relax and read a book instead of writing letters to you and the pro-abortion crowd.  And I dream of a world where the only mention of abortion is in a history book detailing liberalism’s last 100 years of failed policies.

The 3,300 American children who were killed today died in a country where the value of a human life has been set at the price an abortion mill will charge to kill a human being. Most of them died as a simple matter of convenience and were seen as an unwanted problem, not a living human being.

Tomorrow America’s abortion mills will open for business and the killing will continue.  Tomorrow night I’ll clock-in, more determined than ever to end the killing.

Ms. Richards:

Picture the capacity crowds at last weekend’s NFL football games.  Then, imagine every seat in every stadium being occupied by a child.  Ms. Richards, America’s abortion industry will kill more children this year than the stadiums for last weekend’s games could hold.  Your organization, Planned Parenthood, will kill enough unborn children to fill nearly 5 stadiums to capacity.  Over the course of a typical NFL football game America’s abortion mills will kill over 400 children.  And in the time it takes a fan to walk from their couch to the refrigerator another child will be killed.

Ms. Richards, the entire NFL has less than 1,700 active players at any given time.  Your industry kills nearly twice that many babies every day.  I know that you are intimately aware of the magnitude of the carnage, but most of my fellow Americans are not.  And I think we both know that most Americans, armed with the facts, would be horrified at the scope of the death and destruction your industry commits against our unborn children on a daily basis.  That’s why I do what I do.  My mission in life is to close the doors of Planned Parenthood and every abortion mill in America.  I know it sounds like a monumental task, but all I really need to do is let the ugly truth about what you do speak for itself.

Ms. Richards, have your held a newborn child lately; one that’s alive?  The innocence and vulnerability of a newborn is palpable.  While you know they are totally dependent upon the love and kindness of others to nurture them as they move forward on their universally unique journey, you can feel their instinctive determination to live and to grow.  I’m sure the abortionists in your clinics can sense this as they rip a living child apart and it recoils in pain from the brutal tools they use to end its tiny life.  Ms. Richards, life moves in 1 direction only; forward.  It’s a relentless force and the more you resist its power, and the more lives you end, the faster you are swimming against the tide of the most relentless force and most priceless gift in the Universe.

Ms. Richards, to you and everyone on the pro-abortion side, hold a baby, look into its eyes, feel its unconditional trust that you will love and care for it, and understand that it is a living human being and has been a living human being from the moment of its conception.  I challenge you and every worker at an abortion facility to interact with a living infant every day, and then write me to explain why you feel that killing thousands of unborn children every day is a necessary function of a civilized society.

September 16, 2013

Ms. Hogue:

Every time I visit your website I’m stunned by the distortion and lies you continue to spread about abortion.  Your references to safe abortion are absurd to the nth degree.  No logical argument can be made for calling a procedure designed specifically to kill a human being safe.  Your assertion that abortion is a right is equally absurd.  While abortion is legal in many cases, it is not a right.  Just so you know, rights cannot be conferred by law; they can only be protected by it.  No woman has ever been born or ever will be born with the right to kill her unborn child.  Rights such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are a package deal and are endowed upon each of us by our Creator at the very instant He grants us His animating spark of life; starting each of us on our individually unique journeys.

Ms. Hogue, my pro-life philosophy stems from my role as a father and grandfather.  Just before I composed this letter I fed my 5 week old grandson.  He was due to be born on the 14th but made his initial appearance 5 weeks early.  As I watch him sleep I can’t imagine life without him and still can’t believe that, as I fed him, the abortion industry you promote was killing his future friends and playmates at a rate of 1 every 26 seconds.  1 out of 3 of his future friends will be killed before they are born.

Ms Hogue, you advocate a pro-choice position on abortion.  You and I both know that pro-choice is the same as pro-abortion; all that’s lacking is the courage to say what you really believe.  I have the courage to say what I believe.  I believe that every unborn child, without exception, has the right to be born and is endowed with the same right to life as you and I.  While I’m saying what I believe; I also believe it is the epitome of hypocrisy for anyone who was allowed to be born to take a stand against allowing any other human being the same accommodation.

Despite what you profess, your cause is all about money and power.  If the abortion industry truly believes in what it does they should kill babies for free.  If you truly believe in your mission to protect what you advocate to be a woman’s right to have her child killed, you should stop accepting a salary for your services.

Ms. Hogue, after every visit to your website I feel that I’ve been in the presence of pure evil.  Your organization’s dedication to insuring that millions of innocent children can be killed as a simple matter of choice is a staggering display of utter disregard for the most basic of human rights; the right to life.  In spite of everything your organization has done and everything that it stands for, I believe in redemption.  Change your mission statement and work to protect our unborn children.  It’s never too late to do what you know in your heart is right.

A little over a month ago I began posting my letters to the President, various politicians, and members of America’s abortion industry on this blog. Occasionally, I also post my personal commentaries.  My page views are increasing and Twitter followers are too.  You won’t find a Donate button on my site because I don’t want your money.  I will accept your help though.  To anyone who would like to help; share my posts on your Facebook page and ask your friends to share them as well.  For those of you on Twitter who would like to help; retweet my posts and ask the same of your followers.   Everything published on my blog is written by me and represents the exact text of hard-copy, signed letters I send to the addressees.  I accept full responsibility for all my work.  My reason for doing this is quite simple.  I believe every unborn child deserves the right to be born; period.

I understand that abortion is not something that most people want to talk about or even think about.  I get it, but ignoring the slaughter of unborn children will not make it stop.  Love me or hate me, this is too important for me to look the other way and hope that someone else does the work that must be done to stop the killing.

Thanks for your support:

Ms. Richards:

Thursday, while Planned Parenthood spent the day killing American children, the citizens of Russia were celebrating the 8th annual Day of Conception.  So, while you were busy killing babies, Russians were busy making them. Citizens in eastern Russia were told to take the day off and, well; you know the rest. Vladimir Putin, the same guy who showed the world what an amateur our President is over the crisis in Syria, started the Day of Conception back in 2006 in an attempt to slow the population decline in Russia.  His logic, which appears to be sound, is that by having more kids, the decline in population will be reversed.  Aside from the obvious benefits of having the day off to make babies, the government ups the ante by awarding prizes for babies born exactly 9 months from the Day of Conception.  Last year the winners received a new Jeep.

Ms. Richards, I have an interesting theory on how we can increase the number of children in America. STOP KILLING 1.2 MILLION OF THEM EVERY YEAR.  In the spirit of détente, I’ll match Vladimir Putin’s prize offer.  Stop killing our children and I’ll buy you a Jeep.

Vladimir Putin is a really bad guy, a former KGB thug who was learning how to rip your heart out with a pair of toenail clippers while President Obama was smoking dope with the ‘Choom Gang;’ but even he knows that a nation’s future rests in its children.  Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry are killing our future at a rate of 1 every 26 seconds.  9 months from now the fruits of Russia’s Day of Conception will be born.  9 months from now over 900,000 more American children will have been killed in America’s abortion mills.

Ms. Richards, abortion in America is a zero sum game.  There are no winners, only losers. The death of every child diminishes our country and the world.  America was once a beacon to the world; an example of freedom and respect for life. Now the world looks to America as an example of how not to run a country and how not to treat its unborn children.  Every child killed in America’s abortion mills moves us 1 step closer to sealing our fate as a failed State; worse yet, it dooms us all to moral oblivion.  We all know the difference between right and wrong.  We all know that killing innocent children for money is an abomination.  And we all know that doing nothing renders all of us complicit in the crime.

I will not stand by and do nothing.  I will fight for life for the rest of mine.  I will see the end of abortion in my lifetime.

September 14, 2013

Mr. President:

At the risk of repeating myself, if you had read any of my previous letters you would know that Thursday nights are grandson night for me.  It’s the 1 night of the week that I make sure to spend quality time with both my grandsons.  I know it’s Saturday already, and you’re running third in my letter rotation behind Planned Parenthood and NARAL as I fight to save America’s children; but I always make time to tell you about my grandkids.

This past Thursday, as I fed my newest grandson, I was reminded that he wasn’t supposed to be born until today.  He was born on August 10th, 5 weeks early, and hasn’t taken a step backwards since.  He was a miracle at birth and a miracle at conception, just like every child killed by Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion mills every day.  Mr. President, it’s a tragedy that America’s abortion industry has killed over 112,000 unborn children since my newest grandson was born.  Every one of these children deserved to be spoiled by their grandparents as they exercised their God-given right to life and made their unique impression on the world.

Mr. President, as a grandparent it’s the simple things that give me the most pleasure; running in the grass with my grandson, reading to him, and holding his tiny little brother.  Abortion denies these simple pleasures to millions of potential grandparents and, more importantly, their grandchildren.  Sir, it’s not hard to see that America’s priorities are totally screwed up when you have a 24 hour waiting period to get a tattoo in D.C. while there is no waiting period for having an abortion in the same city.

America was inculcated into an abortion mentality by progressive leftists like you.  For years, Liberals have advanced an ‘instant gratification’ mentality that preaches no consequences for an individual’s actions; no winners, no losers; everyone gets a trophy.  Come to think of it, it’s the same mentality that lead a country to elect a dangerously unqualified, utterly inept President who had never held a real job before.  Sir, I think we all know who I’m talking about.

Mr. President, America is reaping the results of liberalism run amuck.  Murderous organizations like Planned Parenthood are promoted as health care providers.  Killing unborn babies is termed ‘reproductive health care’; all while Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry is working overtime to kill 1.2 million children a year.  You express outrage when children are killed in schools and either don’t know or don’t care that these incidents occur as a direct result of your side’s assault on the value of a human life.

Sir, with all due respect, get your ass in gear and start fighting for the lives of America’s greatest treasure; its children.

Mr. President, all my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com.  Unplug the teleprompter and write me a letter and I’ll publish it, unedited of course.

Ms. Richards:

This week America was reminded of man’s inhumanity to man. We remembered those who were killed 12 years ago when radical Islamists unleashed terror on our Homeland.  Forty years ago Roe v Wade unleashed terror on America’s unborn children.  The tally to date; 56,000,000 dead children.   Planned Parenthood was instrumental in the fight to make elective abortion, killing an unborn child, legal in America.  Your push for Roe v Wade was self-serving.  Planned Parenthood stood to make $ billions on the suffering and death of millions of innocent children once their killing was enabled under cover of the law.

Forty years later you continue to kill America’s children at a rate of 1 every 94 seconds.  You continue to promote your deadly services as women’s reproductive health care, not daring to call what you do what it really is; and you continue to make $ billions from the blood of innocent children.

Ms. Richards, on 9/11 America’s abortion industry killed more innocent human beings than the terrorists.  Today they will kill even more.  On the anniversary of 9/11 your organization killed over 1,000 American children.  September 11, 2001 will go down in history as one of the darkest days in our history.  Future historians will look back at the first 40 years after Roe v Wade and be horrified at the magnitude of the brutal assault that America’s abortion industry waged against our unborn children.

Ms. Richards, your industry is killing nearly 1 out of 3 children in America before they can be born. You promote abortion as a safer alternative for the mother than giving birth, while you know the facts don’t support your position; especially for the unborn child who will die.  In the hour it took me to compose this letter, Planned Parenthood killed another 45 babies.  You’ll kill 5 more while I print it, sign it, and place it in the envelope.  While I walk to the mailbox to mail it you’ll kill another child.  While I wait for your reply, that will probably never come, you may kill millions.

Today the pro-life movement is 1 day closer to putting you out of business.  Tomorrow my resolve to close your doors for the last time will continue to grow stronger.  While you’re reviewing the final body count for today, take a moment, since it’s Friday the 13th, and ask yourself if you feel lucky. Ask yourself how much longer you think you can sell what you do as anything other than killing babies for money. Then, start thinking about what you will do when killing children for a fee is no longer an employment option.

Letter to Harry Reid #3

Senator Harry Reid

522 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C.  20510

September 12, 2013

Senator 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.
