This time last year the Kermit Gosnell trial had just ended and a statement from the President was not forthcoming. About the same time last year the President proclaimed “God bless Planned Parenthood.” The world was upside down and the time I was able to spend with my little grandson as our country imploded was the inspiration I needed to commit to my personal fight to end abortion. Over the past year or so I’ve written hundreds of letters to all the usual suspects in the pro-abortion crowd and the abortion industry. As I composed all these letters, my first grandson and then his little brother were always on my mind.
I’ve made a personal pledge to continue my fight for the lives of our unborn children until the fight is won or until I reach my expiration date. I wrote the following letter to President Obama last June, after spending a weekend of bonding with my 2 year old grandson. I want every grandparent and every grandchild to feel the love and gratitude that I feel every time I have the pleasure of being in the company of my grandsons. I hope President Obama becomes a grandfather some day. Maybe that will be his inspiration to move to the pro-life side.

Last weekend I had the distinct privilege of spending 2 days with my 2 year old grandson. Mr. President, I would not trade the last 2 years with this wonderful child in my life for anything. Looking into my grandson’s eyes and knowing that he knows he is safe and unconditionally loved is absolutely priceless.
Sir, it is no less than a national tragedy that hundreds of thousands of innocent children will die a brutal and horrifying death this year in America’s abortion mills. These children will never enjoy the loving embrace of a parent or grandparent. They will never feel the awe and sheer delight of watching their first butterfly take flight. These miraculous creations of God will never look into a loved one’s eyes and know without a doubt that they are safe and loved.
Mr. President, I believe the Founders of our nation were divinely inspired and that America was to be God’s example to the world that peace through strength, and respect for the dignity of every human life was the key to freedom and happiness for all. Our Founders even put it in writing. Sir, America has strayed from the foundation she was built upon. We are better than this, and I will never accept the indiscriminate slaughter of our unborn and newly born children as business as usual in the greatest country on earth.
Mr. President, your silence during the recent trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell was deafening. This monster brutally murdered thousands of unborn and newly born children in a house of horrors and not a single statement was issued by your administration before, during, or after the trial. The truly horrifying fact is that there are hundreds more abortionists in America who are as bad as or even worse than Kermit Gosnell.
Sir, if you are proud of your stance on abortion why did you back out as the keynote speaker at Planned Parenthood’s annual gala during the Gosnell trial? What do you think it says about our country when our President celebrates the success of the world’s largest abortion provider?
Mr. President, as I’ve stated in my previous letters, one short statement from you in support of the pro-life movement could literally move mountains. Sir, as the elected leader of our country you have the sworn duty to protect the rights of all Americans, born and unborn. All I ask is that you do your job.
I will do anything to help you save our nation’s children. Let me know how I can help you.
