Last summer, after the House had passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, I began writing to various Senators, most of them with long histories of supporting the unrestricted killing of our unborn children, urging them to get behind this bill in the Senate. Two of those letters are included below. Since Harry Reid carries the water for Barack Obama, the most pro-abortion President in our history, there is virtually no hope of him allowing this bill to be voted upon in the Senate while he is the Majority Leader. While our children are being slaughtered daily by the thousands, I refuse to give up hope, and will keep trying to make our political weasels on the pro-abortion side of the aisle as uncomfortable as possible with their conscious choice to look the other way and pretend that their inaction is not enabling infanticide in my country.
The following letters were written to Barbara Mikulski, one of my state’s most embarrassing contributions to the Senate, and Barbara Boxer, California’s pride and joy.
Senator Barbara Mikulski

Majority Leader Reid has signaled that he may be receptive to allowing a Senate vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. As a pro-life advocate I support this legislation. Although I support the Right to life for all unborn children, I know that this fight will not be easy and will not be won quickly or without setbacks.
Senator, like many Americans, I’m a parent and grandparent. I treasure my children and grandchildren. My 2 year old grandson is the joy of my life and we are anxiously awaiting the birth of his little brother in September. I believe that my unborn grandson is just as much alive and human as you, me, and the rest of our family members. I also believe that it is unconscionable that my daughter could walk into any abortion clinic in Maryland tomorrow and have my unborn, yet alive, grandson killed as a simple matter of convenience.
Senator, the preferred method of abortion for children 20 weeks old and older is dilation and evacuation. This procedure is performed by literally ripping the unborn, pain-capable child apart, limb by limb. I can’t imagine the indescribable agony and suffering these children endure as they are killed in this manner. I also can’t imagine a civilized society allowing this procedure to be performed one more time.
Senator, I can think of no higher calling in life than the honor of protecting the most vulnerable among us; our unborn and newly born children. I don’t know where you stand on abortion and I really don’t care. What I care about is saving lives and insuring that every unborn child has the opportunity to experience the same Right to life that you and I were granted.
Senator Mikulski, an incontrovertible fact is that 100% of the politicians opposed to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act were allowed to be born. Wherever you stand on abortion, allowing pain-capable children to be slaughtered at the hands of an abortionist cannot be justified.
I therefore respectfully request that you speak out in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and vote for its passage in the Senate. Our children and grandchildren deserve no less.
Senator Barbara Boxer
112 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Even though we live on different sides of the country we’re united as Americans. As a pro-life American I dream of a day when all our unborn children are allowed to exercise the same Right to life that you and I treasure. By now I’m sure you’ve figured out that we are on opposite sides of the debate when it comes to abortion. In spite of our differences, I’m sure we can agree as parents and grandparents that saving our pain-capable unborn children from the indescribable agony of abortion is the right thing to do.
Senator, the House has done its part and passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act; now it’s your turn. No reasonable person can justify the torturous killing of a living, but unborn 5 month old child. You have spoken out in the past against waterboarding and subjecting murderous terrorists to physical and mental discomfort. Please speak out now against killing innocent children.
Majority Leader Reid has indicated that he may allow a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The least you can do is consider this bill with an open mind and an open heart. Think of your own children and imagine the void in your life if they had never been given the chance to be born.
Senator Boxer, at 20 weeks old and older, unborn children are killed with a procedure known as dilation and evacuation. This procedure is performed by literally ripping the living, pain-capable child apart, limb by limb. No child should ever have to die in this manner; and as a politician who has spoken out against torture, I can’t imagine how you could justify your opposition to a bill designed to protect them. You and your fellow Senators have a chance to make history with this bill and the opportunity to save untold thousands of innocent children.
I plan to spend the rest of my life fighting for the lives of our unborn children. No child should fall asleep tonight nestled safely in its mother’s womb, only to suffer a ghastly death tomorrow at the hands of an abortionist. Please join me in protecting these children.
Senator Boxer, I respectfully request that you speak out in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and vote for its passage in the Senate. America’s children deserve no less.
