As a resident of The Socialist Republic of Maryland, I’m used to being governed by far-left, clueless bureaucrats. Our current Governor, Martin O’Malley, is as far-left as they get. He’s also in the tank for the pro-abortion lobby. Governor O’Malley fought tooth and nail to abolish the death penalty in Maryland, sparing condemned murderers and rapists from from the ultimate punishment. Apparently, our unborn children weren’t as high a priority for him. So, I had an idea. Why not abolish the death penalty for Maryland’s unborn children and show them the same mercy we grant to convicted killers?
I ran this idea by the Governor last August with the following letter. His response; the sound of crickets chirping.

I know you’re busy so I’ll get right to my point. Since the death penalty has been repealed in Maryland, I propose that our state’s unborn children be given the same accommodation. The Guttmacher Institute estimates that 34,290 abortions were performed in Maryland in 2008. Incidentally, that’s the last year anything resembling reliable data was available and 2 years after the state stopped tracking abortions. Since Maryland is one of the most abortion-friendly states in the country, I’m curious as to why the Md. Dept. of Health & Mental Hygiene decided in September of 2006 that they would no longer track or report the number of abortions performed in our state. I’m gonna go out on a limb and speculate that maybe they just didn’t want people like me to know how many innocent children are killed in Maryland’s abortion mills every year.
Governor, I think it’s safe to say that you and I probably don’t agree on much of anything. We both know you’re toying with a run for the Presidency in 2016 so it’s a no-brainer that you don’t want to stir up the pro-abortion crowd and risk losing all the money they’ll be funneling to your campaign, so the chance of you seriously considering my proposal are just short of nil. Think about it though. Condemned criminals convicted of unspeakable crimes are under no threat of death in Maryland while unborn children are killed for a fee with virtually no restrictions, and little, if any, government oversight.
Speaking of government oversight, I recently wrote to both the Maryland Board of Physicians and the Md. Dept. of Health & Mental Hygiene about a physician operating an unlicensed, cash only, abortion clinic in Bladensburg, Md. This doctor was operating the abortion clinic while on probation as a condition of a 2 year suspension of his medical license. How about looking into this since the only communication I’ve received from the State of Md. is a 2 sentence letter from DHMH acknowledging that my complaint had been handed off to them from the Md. Board of Physicians.
Governor, as a pro-life conservative living in one of the most left leaning states in America, I’m used to incompetency in government and bureaucrats intruding into every aspect of my life. I’m a big boy and I can deal with the bean- counters. I refuse, however, to live in a state known as a haven for late-term abortionists without speaking out and drawing attention to the problem. In future letters I’ll name names and ask for your help.
I’m publishing my letters to you on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com. I’ll publish your replies too, should you take the time to do so. Sir, I’m committed to ending abortion in America. I invite you to help.
