If you ever get tired of destroying my country and get around to reading any of my letters you’ll see that my grandsons are my inspiration for working towards the end of abortion. Unlike the current occupant of the White House (that would be you) I respect the sanctity of every human life. Unlike the current occupant of the White House, I could never vote to deny potentially lifesaving treatment to babies who had survived botched abortions. Unlike the current occupant of the White House, I could never, in good conscience, impose a government takeover of my country’s healthcare system and make all its citizens unwilling funders of abortion.
Mr. President, there are probably few, if any things we agree on, but there is one thing we have in common. We were both allowed to be born. The gift of life we were both granted was allowed to pursue its natural course. As recipients of this gift we both have a moral obligation to do everything in our power to insure that every new life is allowed the same accommodation. Sir, I am working towards that end. Can you say you are doing the same? Maybe you already said you were, and just ‘misspoke’; just like you’ misspoke’ when you said Americans could keep their health insurance and keep their doctor if they were happy with them.
Mr. President, my grandsons, my inspiration, are what gives me the words to do this every day. If I’m at a loss for words, all I have to do is imagine my life without them, and the words come pouring out. My life has been enriched in ways I could never imagine just by knowing that I am Pop Pop to these two little guys. Sir, in the end, our lives have meaning only if we are able to love and protect our children and grandchildren and to have a positive impact on the lives of others.
Mr. President, as I write this your friends at Planned Parenthood have filed multiple motions with the Supreme Court to have the 20 week abortion ban in Texas overturned. They are also seeking to delay its implementation so they can continue to kill pain-capable children while the Court considers the matter. Organizations like Planned Parenthood would cease to exist without willing accomplices like you. A third of all unborn children in America would not be killed every year without your help and the consent of those on your side of the aisle.
Mr. President, I’m one of those who believes that the Universe has a perfect accounting system. No thought or deed goes unnoticed and every thought or deed comes with consequences. We all own our individual thoughts and deeds and the consequences they engender. Good luck with yours.
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.
