Harry Reid is a despicable human being. The House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act almost a year ago, and Senator Reid has refused to allow it to be brought up for a vote in the Senate. He knows that passing this bill is the right thing to do, but in Washington, D.C. right and wrong don’t matter; it’s all about politics. He knows that President Obama has threatened to veto the bill and he doesn’t want to make the most abortion-friendly President in history look bad. Sorry Senator Reid, but that ship has already sailed. So what, if thousands of innocent children have to die; you can’t go against the President’s wishes, right? Lindsey Graham introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act for unanimous consent in the Senate yesterday. Harry Reid, predictably, moved to thwart a vote; showing just how much he cares about America’s children. His only response: “Wouldn’t it be great if the Republicans offered something, anything that would create a job?”
Senator Reid, if we stop allowing unborn children to be killed, just think about the job growth in the childcare industry, education, children’s products, and healthcare. America allows 1.2 million future consumers and investors to be killed every year. Even if you ignore the moral and ethical components of abortion, it makes good economic sense to allow every new life to realize its full potential.
I wrote the following letter to Senator Reid a couple months ago, and felt that now would be a good time to republish it. Do the right thing Senator Reid.
Senator Harry Reid
522 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510
March 25, 2014
I know you have a lot on your plate right now, what with the unmitigated disaster of ObamaCare, the reality that it will probably cost you the Senate this year, and the mass defections of your panicked Democrat Senators. Even though you have a lot going on right now, nothing is more important than bringing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to the floor for a vote; nothing except insuring that it passes, and then over-riding President Obama’s veto.
Senator Reid, as I’ve stated in my previous letters, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will save at least 15,000 unborn children from a torturously painful death every year. Sir, a few simple votes is all it will take, and thousands of unborn children get to live. You can debate the bill before you vote, but what logical argument could you possibly have for allowing the slaughter of thousands of babies who can feel the pain of being killed?
The 2014 and 2016 elections aren’t looking good for your party the way things stand today. You’ve been caught selling the American people a bill of goods with ObamaCare and you can’t blame this one on the Republicans. They didn’t cast a single vote for ObamaCare and they passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act through the House, so now it’s your turn. Sir, while you are deciding whether or not to allow a vote on this bill, remember that every 26 seconds another baby is aborted in America. Every day you delay a vote on this bill, dozens of late-term babies will be ripped apart while they are being killed in America’s abortion mills.
Senator, if you and your fellow Democrats continue to carry the President’s water on the issue of abortion, you risk the fate of drowning under the weight of his utter incompetence. Sir, you know it’s wrong to kill an innocent human being. You know that the Right to life applies to unborn, living human beings. And you know that every unborn child deserves to be born, just like you and I.
Senator Reid, at the risk of repeating myself, no logical argument can be made to allow pain-capable children to be killed under cover of the law. The greatest country on earth should not be killing over a million of its unborn children every year; and allowing pain-capable babies to be ripped from their mothers’ wombs is an abomination. Senator Reid, imagine the next baby in line to be killed at your local Planned Parenthood clinic is your grandchild. What would you do? The fate of thousands of unborn American children lies in your hands. What will you do?
