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.

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.

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