I’m thinking the recent events in Texas and the voluntary closings of 12 Planned Parenthood clinics have the abortion lobby all atwitter. Yes, I said voluntary closings. As I’m sure you know, nothing in Texas’s strict new abortion laws require any abortion clinic to close. They only require that abortion clinic doctors have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic. After all, the business your organization promotes is all about protecting women, right? One could logically assume that if a doctor is so incompetent he or she can’t secure admitting privileges at a hospital, maybe they shouldn’t’ be performing surgical procedures on women. One could also logically assume that if a doctor’s sole purpose in life is to kill unborn babies, their concern for the welfare of the mothers takes a backseat to money.
Ms. Saporta, there’s a bigger picture here. While you, Planned Parenthood, and the rest of America’s abortion industry tout your services as women’s reproductive health care, when given the opportunity to have your clinics comply with the same medical standards as any other surgical facility, you choose to close. Maybe it’s just me, but this looks suspiciously like these clinics are admitting that they provide a substandard level of care. But, I have to admit that looking at this situation from your perspective, if your clinic is in the business of killing human beings why do universally accepted medical standards apply? Whether you kill a baby under sanitary conditions or not; it’s still dead.
The children you lobby to kill are the children that I and other grandparents love. I spent last weekend with my 2 grandsons, aged 2 ½ years and 3 months. I enjoyed every tiring minute and missed them terribly the moment they left for home. The time I have the privilege of spending with my grandsons represents, without a doubt, the best times of my life. I just wish every grandparent could feel the love I feel from my grandsons. Ms. Saporta, you are lobbying for the massacre of our nation’s future. The children America’s abortion mills are killing represent the last great hope for our country. While we’ve saddled them with debt and totally screwed up the country the lucky ones are allowed to be born into, we owe it to all of them to at least give them the same chance at life we were given.
Peter Singer, head of the ethics chair at Princeton University, advocates that the law allow for children to be killed for up to one month after they are born. I shudder to think that as the abortion industry slowly dies, you will begin to lobby for the post-birth killing of our children. You’ll, undoubtedly, see this as the next logical progression from killing them in the womb. Hopefully our society will regain its collective conscience before the madness of abortion mutates to another insane level, and we close America’s abortion mills once and for all.
As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com. Write back and I’ll publish it, unedited.
