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.

Letter to President Obama #72

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

December 4, 2013

Mr. President:

I’ve had a rough couple days at work so far this week.  In my line of work, this time of year can be very stressful.  Not for me though.  I gave up on stress years ago.  As long as I have life and freedom I can make my situation better and deal with the curveballs that life will inevitably toss my way.  Unfortunately, the world’s unborn children don’t enjoy the same luxury.  They live or die based solely on the wishes of their mother and the whims of progressive activists.  Mr. President, I’m convinced that the only thing standing between our unborn children and the unbridled slaughter of them are men and women of good will and the pro-life movement.

Modern society and pro-abortion leaders like you have done your best to condition the dumb masses to accept abortion as a safe procedure that makes an inconvenient set of circumstances just go away.  You conveniently leave out the fact that a human being is killed every time an abortion is performed and that over a million American children are killed every year by the abortion industry.  Mr. President, your insidious quest to make abortion more accessible has resulted in the American taxpayers being forced to fund abortions through the unmitigated disaster you proudly refer to as ObamaCare.

Just like I gave up on stress, I refuse to give up on the fight for every unborn child’s life.  Each and every one of them was granted the gift of life for reasons I can’t explain and were granted that gift by the One I do not question.  With Christmas just around the corner, I have no interest or desire for worldly gifts.  The only gift I desire is that every unborn child be allowed to be born.  Mr. President, if a child misses out on the gift of life, nothing else really matters does it?  This is the season of giving.  It’s also the season of receiving.  From the One who grants the gift of life, who are we to refuse to accept it?

Mr. President, with the New Year coming up it’s also time for everyone to make their New Year’s resolutions.  I’m sure yours is to get that freaking website up and running and to hope for something to happen that will take the attention off your colossal healthcare disaster.  I’ve already made my resolution too.  I plan to pester the hell out of you, Planned Parenthood, and the rest of the pro-abortion crowd until you all see the error of your ways.  Happy Holidays!

As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at  Write back and I’ll publish it, unedited.
