This time last year, the House was about to vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. President Obama had already made his intentions clear. He had promised to veto the bill if it made it through the House and then the Democrat controlled Senate. The House passed the bill and, as of this date, nearly a year later, Harry Reid refuses to allow a vote on it in the Senate. I understand that reasonable people can disagree on what’s right and what’s wrong. What I can’t understand is why anyone would take a position against a bill designed to protect pain-capable unborn children from being killed, using a barbaric procedure such as dilation and evacuation. Ripping a living human being apart with the intention of killing it should be illegal whether that human being is yet to be born, or at any other stage of its life.
Pain-capable babies continue to be killed every day in America while Harry Reid stonewalls this bill and the President glad-hands with Planned Parenthood. I reached out to the President with the following letter on June 12 of last year. As always, I copied his good friends at Planned Parenthood just so they would know I was thinking about them too.
The White House

Washington, D.C. 20500
Attn: President Barack Obama
June 12, 2013
Since you claim that your inner circle doesn’t tell you anything, I just wanted to let you know that the House will be voting on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act next week. This bill, if passed, will ban abortions on living human beings 20 weeks old and older.
While I don’t think this bill goes far enough, I’ll take every small victory for our innocent children and be grateful for it. Medical experts say that unborn children can feel pain as early as 8 weeks into their young lives, so my question to you and the murderers at Planned Parenthood is this: Does the fact that these innocent children die an excruciating death at the hands of an abortionist bother you at all?
I’m quite sure that your surrogates and those representing the abortion industry are hard at work behind the scenes to protect their cash flow from late-term abortions, whatever the science says and regardless of the reality of the pain and suffering they inflict. Hopefully, enough men and women of principle will resist the arm-twisting and do right by our children.
Mr. President, I think we both know that whatever the House does, this bill is dead on arrival at the Senate. We both also know that a little arm-twisting of your own can get this bill through the Senate. Then, all you have to do is sign it, and countless thousands of innocent babies will be afforded the most basic and most important of all human rights, the right to life.
Try to forget for a moment that money is more important to your good friends at Planned Parenthood than the lives of our country’s children, and do the right thing. Sir, God knows you’ve made a total mess of this country in less than 5 years, but being remembered by historians as the man who stemmed the tide of abortion and stood up for the right to life of the most vulnerable among us will seal your place in history.
Mr. President, I’m a bottom line kind of guy so I’ll give it to you straight; your administration is the most corrupt in the history of our country, even the left-wing media is turning against you, and you could really use a little positive PR right now. Push the bill, sign the bill, and make a whole lot of new friends. Trust me; you’re going to need them.
