Ms. Richards:

Based on your 2012-2013 Annual Report, it looks like the world’s most prolific child killing organization had another banner year.  Between June 30, 2012 and June 30, 2013 you killed 327,166 unborn children.  At the same time, you received $540.6 million from the U.S. taxpayers.  That works out to a little less than $1,700.00 per dead child.  I would be remiss if I didn’t compliment you on your creative math, where you show abortion as accounting for only 3% of your services.  Anyone who has done any research into your deceptive practices knows that this is a result of bundling.  As an example, a woman comes to your clinic for birth control pills.  She receives 5 brochures, a prescription, 2 packages of condoms, a Planned Parenthood bumper sticker, and a brief consultation.  Planned Parenthood books this as 10 services provided.  A woman walks into a Planned Parenthood clinic, pays the fee, and has her unborn child killed.  This is booked as 1 service provided.  This creative math makes abortion look like a tiny portion of the services you provide even though the killing of innocent children is your cash cow.

Ms. Richards, the whole world knows that the viability of your evil empire depends entirely on your ability to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent children every year.  It saddens me more than I can express in words that during the 45 minutes it took me to compose this letter your organization killed another 30 unborn children.  Every tick of the clock signals the impending doom of another innocent child. If the 3,300 children killed every day by America’s abortion industry were killed in their homes, their schools, or on their playgrounds our entire country would mobilize as one to end the killing.  Yet, the majority of my fellow Americans remain silent as you kill thousands every day.

I believe with all my heart that revealing the truth about Planned Parenthood will result in its demise.  I also believe that most Americans, armed with the facts, will demand that your organization be closed forever.  My dreams are simple.  Let every living child be born.  Allow every child to realize its unlimited potential.  Respect the Right to life of every human being from conception to natural death.

Ms. Richards, as an arguably intelligent woman, you have to know that it can’t end well for an organization that kills babies for money.  The liberal elites who made it possible for you to do what you do for a living will turn on you as soon as their grasp on power is threatened.  My hope is that you will realize the extent of the slaughter you have visited upon America’s children and end the insanity long before your enablers end it for you.

Planned Parenthood Comes to My Town

In August of this year, while doing research on Planned Parenthood, I was stunned to discover that they had opened an office within miles of my home.  At the time I was anxiously awaiting the impending birth of my second grandson and was saddened by the fact that in the small town of Salisbury, Maryland a mother could walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic and have her unborn child killed.  I wasn’t born yesterday and I know that most of the letters I send will never be seen by the intended recipient.  The following letter was addressed to whomever drew the short straw and opened the mail at Planned Parenthood’s Salisbury, Maryland office.

Salisbury Health Center

1506 South Salisbury Blvd.

Court Plaza Shopping Center

Salisbury, Md.  21801

August 2, 2013

To Whom it May Concern:

I was recently appalled to learn that Planned Parenthood was alive and well at your location, less than 2 miles from my home.  I was even more appalled after visiting your website where I learned that you would accept a young woman’s high school I.D., report card, or class schedule as forms of identification.  I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that the abortion industry has opened shop in my Town.

Obviously, I don’t know who will be reading this letter, but in a town this size you’re probably a friend, a neighbor, or an acquaintance of an acquaintance.  Times are tough and work is hard to come by, but is it really worth it to work for an organization that kills over 300,000 babies a year?  Like it or not, you’re being paid with blood money.

Have you read your website?  Isn’t it ironic that your site says the following? “We do not provide childcare services.  We request that you please make childcare arrangements.”  I guess in a perverse kind of way your clients are making childcare arrangements, aren’t they?  I am confused, however, because under your abortion tab you clearly state “Please do not bring children with you to the health center.”  This presents a dilemma on many fronts.  How is a mother supposed to kill her child if she doesn’t bring it with her? Maybe you just don’t want post-birth children to see what happens at your facility.   Whatever the reason for your ‘no children’ policy, I agree with you.  A Planned Parenthood clinic is no place for a child to be, at any stage in its life.

Every dose of Mifepristone(RU486) that your facility administers to a pregnant mother will kill a living human being.  Every referral that you make to a clinic that performs surgical abortions will result in the death of an innocent human being.  Every time a desperate young woman pays you $375.00 for the abortion pill a living baby is about to die.  In my world, every life is priceless and ending one for a few hundred dollars is beyond repugnant.

You and I, and all your colleagues at Planned Parenthood were allowed to be born.  We weren’t guaranteed prosperity, success, or happiness; but we were given a chance.  You will never convince me that every unborn child doesn’t, at the very least, deserve a chance.

Every 94 seconds, somewhere in America your employer kills another innocent child.  I’m pretty sure that most of Planned Parenthood’s employees have never heard of Sophocles, but his work should be required reading for all of you.  He wrote the following: “There is no witness so terrible or no accuser so powerful as the conscience.”  I respectfully request that you dwell on this and rethink what you do for a living.

Letter to President Obama #74

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

December 27, 2013

Mr. President:

Aloha.  While you and your family are living it up in Hawaii, over 3,000 innocent children are dying every day in America’s abortion mills.  They will never feel an ocean breeze or the loving caress of a parent.  While you stumble through your latest round of golf and ham it up for your friends in the mainstream media, America’s abortion mills are killing 1 out of every 3 unborn children.

Mr. President, as the most pro-abortion President in history, you are presiding over a human tragedy of epic proportions with over 6 million abortions performed during your first 5 years in office.  If over 1 million Americans were killed every year by terrorists would you take action to stop the killing?  If over a million schoolchildren were murdered every year in their classrooms would you be concerned?  Why do you say nothing as more than a million tiny humans are killed every year just as they are beginning their life journeys?

Mr. President, as you well know, elections have consequences.  Electing inept ideologues like you gives your star struck supporters just what they deserve; an erosion of societal values and a growing indifference for the value of every human life.  Unfortunately, those of us who saw through your non-existent resume and slick talk are stuck with you for 3 more years too.  As adults, we can make our own choices and improve our situation in spite of leaders like you.  Our unborn children aren’t availed the same luxury.  They live and die on the whims of a nation in decline and politically driven morals that shift with the tides of public opinion.

America’s children are priceless.  They deserve better than to be slaughtered in the most barbaric procedures and tossed into medical waste containers like so much garbage.  Organizations like Planned Parenthood should never exist in a country founded on the principles of equality for all, with the Right to life as its basis.  A civilized country should never enact laws that allow a mother to walk into an abortion clinic, pay a fee, and have her unborn child legally killed.  America’s taxpayers should not be forced to send over $500 million a year to Planned Parenthood.

Mr. President, you swore an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.  You’ve had 5 years.  Don’t you think it’s about time you honor your oath?  Sir, if we turn our backs on the most vulnerable among us, our unborn children, what does that say about us as parents, grandparents, and human beings?  Just like elections have consequences, so do our choices in life.  I choose life and will never rest until America’s abortion industry is history.

Enjoy your vacation and think about the hundreds of innocent children that will die during your next round of golf.

Ms. Richards:

I hope you and your employees at Planned Parenthood had a wonderful Christmas.  I also hope you and all your employees took the time this Holiday season to reflect on what you do for a living and the suffering and death that occurs every day in your clinics.  America’s abortion industry will kill over 1.2 million unborn children before we celebrate another Christmas.  Planned Parenthood will kill over 300,000 of them.  How you and your staff can look your children in the eyes before you go to work every day is beyond my level of understanding.

Ms. Richards, as a businessman I have to forecast how much work I intend to do and how much money I plan to make every year.  Have you prepared your forecast of how many children your organization plans to kill next year?  Does Planned Parenthood give its employees bonuses for exceeding your projected body count?  What metrics, other than body count and the amount of money you manage to fleece the American taxpayers out of, do you use to determine whether you have had a productive year?

Ms. Richards, I believe in going big or not going at all.  I also believe in the power of intention.  I intend to close the doors of Planned Parenthood forever in 2014.  Just in case you’re wondering how I will close you down; I haven’t a clue. I know it will be done without violence, within the law, and with the help of a higher power.  Who knows; maybe the right person will read one of my letters and set a chain of events into motion that none of us can even imagine.  Maybe next year the pro-life movement will reach the critical mass needed to invoke unprecedented changes in our society and a quantum level of understanding of the true value of every human life.  Maybe the 56 million children aborted in America since 1973 will collectively petition our Creator to soften the hearts of the pro-abortion crowd and return our country to a place where every new life is a welcomed addition.  Whatever it takes to end the killing, we need it now.

As I enter my 60th year in a few weeks, I’m paying more attention to what’s really important.  Money, success, and material possessions are all temporal, and of no intrinsic value in the big scheme of things.  How you conduct your life and the impact and impressions you make on the lives of others are what’s really important.  Human life is the most miraculous creation in a timeless and endless Universe and dedicating one’s life to preserving and protecting it is a worthy calling.

Ms. Richards, closing your doors is my life’s mission and I welcome the fight as a happy warrior.

December 25, 2013

Mr. President:

As I sit here on Christmas morning waiting for my children and grandchildren to arrive, I’m reflecting on my purpose in life.  I have a stressful, albeit, well-paid job, but I feel the pull to work full-time towards the betterment of my fellow man, regardless of the compensation or lack thereof for doing so.  I’m conflicted over the financial obligations I have for my family and the unrelenting sense of purpose I feel to use the gift of life I have been given to dedicate my life to save the world’s children from the scourge of abortion.  Do I abdicate my duties as a father and grandfather and work to save the many, or focus on my own family and encourage them to join me on my mission to end abortion?

Despite the calling I feel to end abortion, my love for my children and grandchildren compels me to focus my efforts to insure they are all safe and happy.  The confliction I feel is this:  While I’m spending quality time with my family, always in the back of my mind is the realization that every 26 seconds in America, while I laugh and play with my grandsons, another child is dying at the hands of America’s abortion industry.  Mr. President, doing nothing as millions of children die every year in my country is not an option for me.  The principles our country was founded upon would never even consider the indiscriminate killing of our unborn children a Right that was granted by God to their mothers.  Evil empires like Planned Parenthood could have never been imagined by the men of honor and integrity that formed our nation as the one place on earth where our Creator’s intention that all men are created equal would stand as our foundational principle.

As the New Year approaches, Harry Reid has refused to allow the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to be voted upon in the Senate.  Mr. President, no debate should be necessary on this bill.  What man or woman with even a modicum of humanity could vote against a bill designed to prevent the killing of unborn children who have developed to the point that they can feel the pain of being killed?  Sir, you owe all Americans an explanation as to why you have threatened to veto this bill if it is passed by the Senate.

Thousands of American children will die in our nation’s abortion mills tomorrow.  Today, while millions of children celebrate Christmas, thousands of scared, confused mothers are preparing to have their unborn children killed tomorrow, many of them feeling they have no other option.  We are better than this as a nation and as parents and grandparents.

Mr. President, hug your children today and think about the ones doomed to die tomorrow.

Dec. 22, 2013

Last night I was reminded of the fragility of human life and how quickly everything can change.  I was babysitting my 2 grandsons, aged 4 months and nearly 3 years.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that my night would include a frantic call to 911, an ambulance ride to the hospital, and a stressful night of poking, prodding, and testing on my oldest grandson.

My evening started by feeding the baby and playing with his big brother.  We watched some Christmas movies, changed the baby’s diaper, and played some more.  My oldest grandson was exhausted from a long day of play with no nap and became increasingly cranky, eventually resulting in my placing him in timeout for a couple minutes.  He cried when I imposed the timeout and I felt bad for causing my best friend to cry, but knew that he had to be taught to be respectful and to listen when he was told to do something by his parents or grandparents.

After the timeout, play time resumed.  As I played with baby brother, big brother played with his cars 15 feet to my left.  When he stopped making car sounds a couple minutes later, I assumed he had fallen asleep and walked over to check on him.  The sight that awaited me resulted in a feeling of panic and helplessness that I have never experienced.  My oldest grandson was lying on his side, mildly seizing, eyes wide open, his mouth moving in a chewing motion as he hyper-salivated.  My immediate thought was that he had swallowed something or ingested something that was toxic.  I swabbed his mouth with my fingers to make sure his airway was clear and rolled him onto his back to see if I could elicit a response from him.  His eyes were still wide open and he was unresponsive.  At this point, the dreadful thought that my precious grandson may be dying right before my eyes began to creep into my mind.  I grabbed my phone and dialed 911 through my tears and made the call that no parent or grandparent ever wants to make.

After what seemed like a lifetime, I could see that he was breathing and had now closed his eyes.  Now, as I waited for the ambulance to arrive, I had to make the phone call to his mother to let her know that the child she entrusted to my care for the evening was unresponsive and awaiting transport to the ER.  By the time he arrived at the hospital, my grandson was awake and crying.  After hours of tests, all showing no problems, he was released.

While more tests await him, he is at home, healthy, and happy.  Last night reminded me to never take the next hour or the next day for granted.  Let your kids and grand-kids know that you love them and treasure every minute with them.  Never let your guard down and understand that everything can change in a matter of seconds.

Christmas came early for me this year.  I still have my grandson and I don’t need anything else.

Reflections #2

Back in October of 2010 I was hoping that the Obama administration’s stranglehold on America’s government would be broken in the upcoming mid-term elections.  I had been researching his history on abortion and was concerned that the longer he had unfettered power, the more unborn children would die.  At the time I was writing for several different blogs and websites and never actually finished the following piece.  It was a rough draft of a pro-life article I intended to clean up and add to, but it never happened.  I came across it today as I was going through some old files and instantly remembered how I felt when I began writing it and how concerned I was that the President and his pro-abortion allies would accelerate the growth of America’s abortion industry if they didn’t suffer losses in the upcoming election.  I began by titling the draft of what I intended to become a completed piece, Elections Have Consequences for the Unborn.

Elections Have Consequences for the Unborn

Before you cast your vote next month take the time to find out where your candidate stands on life.  Are they pro-life or pro-choice?  It makes a world of difference to the most vulnerable among us.

The pro-choicers will give you the standard talking point that they feel abortion should be “safe, rare, and legal.”  How can a procedure that results in the death of a human being 100% of the time be considered safe?  How can a procedure that has been performed in the U.S. over 50 million times since 1973 be considered rare?  And how can a society sanction the murder of innocent children under cover of the law?

Roe v Wade ushered in one of our nation’s darkest hours and sent America sliding downward to a point where the value of human life has been diminished.  This loss of respect for the sanctity of life has had a cumulative effect on our society, resulting in senseless violence in schools and neighborhoods that were once considered safe havens for our children.

The Obama, Reid, Pelosi regime has no problem with abortion on demand, and that speaks volumes on their stance on life and the right to life of America’s unborn children.

This is what Illinois State Senator Obama said on March 30, 2001 while arguing against a ban on abortions in Illinois: “Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or other elements of the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a child, a nine month old child that was delivered to term.  That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place.  I mean it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”  Mr. President: with all due respect; duh.

America deserves better, and has a lot of things that need to be made right. Reversing Roe v Wade is one of the most important.


As this year comes to an end I’m reflecting on some of my past work on behalf of the pro-life movement.  On August 21, 2009 I wrote a short piece titled Calling Murder What it is.  I knew at the time that I wanted to do my part to end abortion and save our children.  In the years since I wrote this piece my life has changed in so many ways.  I’m now the proud grandfather of 2 priceless little boys.  I no longer go to work every day just to get a paycheck.  I see the fruits of my day job as a means to provide for others and to be able to contribute to worthy charities.  As I near my 60th year of life I look forward to the time when I can dedicate all my time to helping others and hopefully fulfilling the silent promise I made to both my grandsons that I would leave them a world that was better than the one I was born into.  What follows was written on a steamy August day nearly four and a half years ago.  If you’re counting the days by the Planned Parenthood method, that would be about 5.5 million dead babies ago.

Calling Murder what it is:


The abortion mill at Planned Parenthood’s Sioux Falls, South Dakota clinic may be running a little slower today.  On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier ruled that under South Dakota law women are required to be told by their health care provider, prior to having an abortion performed, that abortion ends a human life

Judge Schreier’s specific ruling was that doctors must make the biological disclosure “that the abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being.”  From where I’m sitting that pretty much sums it up.  Anyone not understanding this disclosure, or worse yet, not understanding that life begins at conception, should not put themselves in the position where a child may be conceived if they are unwilling or unable to do everything in their power to insure that the new life in their control is allowed to flourish.   More importantly, any doctor not understanding the ramifications of performing an abortion should revisit the very first statement in the Hippocratic Oath: “First, do no harm.”

As I’ve written previously, over 50 million babies have been murdered in America since that dark day on January 22, 1973 when the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade protected a woman’s right to have an abortion.

Our country needs to realize that the senseless murder of innocent babies does not come without consequences, both moral and societal.  Planned Parenthood gets millions of taxpayer dollars every year to run its abortion mills, making every taxpayer involuntarily complicit in the murder of millions of innocent children.  I, for one, am outraged that even one dime of my hard earned money is used to kill babies, and beyond outraged that a supposedly civilized society could condone these grisly procedures.

My friends, we are better than this.  The rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as granted by our Creator; the very core principles that our country was founded on, are diminished, diluted, and ignored every time another baby meets its fate at the hands of an abortionist.  All Americans need to realize that you cannot break these principles; you simply break yourself against them.

This ruling is one more chip out of the abortion wall and hopefully is one more step towards reversing Roe v. Wade, and an irreversible move back to an America where every baby is guaranteed its God given right to life.
