As a pilot, I know that once I’ve reached my assigned altitude and heading I can engage the autopilot, and then the plane practically flies itself. All I have to do is scan my flight control instruments, monitor engine output and heading, and relax. If I accidentally or purposefully disengage the autopilot and fail to assume responsibility and control of the aircraft, I’ll crash and burn. That’s kind of how human life works. Immediately after conception the new life is cruising on autopilot. The animating spark of life that started each life’s universally unique journey has already programmed every stage of its development into its DNA. Left alone and allowed to live and grow, the tiny human being will make its entrance into the world and continue to flourish and grow, with the help of its family and the brotherhood of human beings that preceded him or her.
Ms. Richards, every year Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry turns off life’s autopilot for 1.2 million unborn children. If you and your colleagues simply do nothing, no course corrections, no intervention, no assuming the controls; 1.2 million new lives will enter the world. Instead, you choose to kill these children, most for just a few hundred bucks, and perpetuate a leftist eugenicist’s dream of weeding out those determined unfit to live.
In keeping with the flight motif of this letter, you and America’s child killing industry are on a Kamikaze mission. By killing millions of children you are on course to insure the demise of your industry and the country you peddle your culture of death in. Ms. Richards, at some point you won’t be able to recruit people willing to kill children for a salary. One day you will wake up and realize that you have dedicated your life to killing more human beings than the combined total of all the tyrants in the history of the world. I can only hope that you will someday realize the degree of torment and suffering your organization has inflicted upon the innocent children of the country that has given you so much.
Ms. Richards, I feel the pain of every child you will kill today. I feel the fear and confusion of the mothers you take advantage of. I feel the fear and the struggle to end the pain that every child being ripped apart must endure.
Ms. Richards, I’m tormented by the realization that hundreds of children will be killed in America while I compose this letter. I get comfort when I look into the eyes of my grandsons and know that their children and grandchildren will live in a world without abortion.
