Saturday night as I watched football with my 2 ½ year old grandson, he began to inform me that the Pilgrims came to America on the Mayflower because the King of England treated them badly. He went on to tell me that they shared turkey with the Native Americans on Thanksgiving Day. I was floored and proud at the same time that my little guy was so smart that he could strike up a conversation with me about Thanksgiving. I have a lot to give thanks for on Thursday, and he is right at the top.
Ms. Richards, I will also be giving thanks on Thursday that America’s abortion industry is beginning its death spiral to oblivion. I’m thankful that for one day this week your organization will not be killing babies for money. And I’m thankful that states like Texas are stepping up for our unborn children and doing what our national leaders don’t have the courage to do.
Ms. Richards, I’m thankful that I have learned about people like you so I can become a better person myself. Unless you can see pure evil, you can’t fully grasp the contrast between good and evil. Planned Parenthood, in my humble opinion, represents evil incarnate. What greater definition of evil could one possibly have than the image of an organization that kills hundreds of thousands of living human beings every year for nothing other than the fee they receive for performing the execution? Will the thought of what you do for a living even cross your mind as you celebrate Thanksgiving with your family and friends? Will you entertain even the briefest acknowledgement of all the babies who had to die to put your Thanksgiving meal on the table?
In spite of our problems, America will have a lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. I will have a special embrace for both my grandsons for the joy and love they bring to my life. As I hug my grandsons this year I do so with my solemn commitment to do everything I can to save the children they should be growing up with. Ms. Richards, we have a lot of work to do in order to fix all of our country’s problems. The tragedy of abortion in America is not a hard fix; just stop killing babies.
Ms. Richards, as you enjoy your Thanksgiving meal, think of all the frightened, confused mothers who will be having their last Thanksgiving with their baby living inside them; the baby who is doomed to die in one of your clinics the following day.
