July 15, 2014

On the evening of July 17 last year I punched in for another night of writing letters in pursuit of my goal of ending abortion.  At the time, Harry Reid was signaling that he was considering allowing a vote on The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  Since then he has changed his mind.  I was still on track last July to write one letter a day to the President on behalf of the pro-life movement.  Not long after this letter, I decided to branch out and write to all the key players in the ongoing slaughter of the world’s children.

Most of the ideas for my letters come from my perspective as a father and grandfather.  I think about the emptiness in my life had my children and grandchildren never been born, and the words come pouring out.  I was frustrated with the President when I wrote the following letter.  For a man who has shown nothing but contempt for the Constitution, he chooses to hide behind it with his flailing attempts to justify his opposition to a bill designed to save the lives of innocent children.

Since I wrote this letter, States have passed dozens of bills restricting abortion.  We are winning the battles and my hope is that the war will be won in the near future.

Attn:    President Barack Obama

 July 17, 2013

Mr. President:

The letters I am writing to you and members of the abortion industry are inspired by the love I feel for my 2 year old grandson.  As parents and grandparents we are entrusted with the sacred duty to care for and protect our children and grandchildren.  Sir, this duty applies to our unborn children and grandchildren too.

Last night my daughter purchased a flotation device and water wings for my grandson in preparation for a pool party he is attending this weekend.  She didn’t do this while thinking about a sacred trust or moral obligation of any sort. She did it out of love for her child and her desire to make sure he is safe.  Mr. President, the natural instinct to love and protect our children is in all of us.  Unfortunately, you, the pro-abortion crowd, and abortion mills such as Planned Parenthood have suppressed this instinct in favor of political expediency and money.

Mr. President, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, of all people, has signaled that he may be receptive to allowing a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  Getting this bill through a left-leaning, pro-abortion Senate will be a very heavy lift unless you weigh in on the side of life.  You recently said you would veto this bill if it passed because “it shows contempt for women’s’ health and rights, the role doctors play in their patients’ health care decisions, and the Constitution.”  Sir, with all due respect, this has to be one the most asinine and incomprehensible statements you have ever made; and trust me, the list to choose from is quite long.

Where to begin?  How does a bill designed to protect fully developed babies from a horrific death and women from unsafe medical procedures show contempt for women’s health and rights?  How does the requirement that doctors performing abortions have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the abortion clinic show contempt for women’s health?  How does protecting the lives of unborn babies and their mothers show contempt for the Constitution?

Since I’m batting a thousand on not getting replies to my letters I won’t hold my breath waiting for your reply to this one.  Hopefully, your interns or some low level staffer charged with reading your mail will see something in one of my letters that moves them to the pro-life side of the aisle.

In the words of Dante, “There’s a special place in hell for those who in times of moral crisis choose to do nothing.”  Mr. President, when comes to protecting our Nation’s unborn children, you have chosen to do nothing.

Letter to Planned Parenthood #47

Planned Parenthood Federation of America

1110 Vermont Ave.  NW

Suite 300

Washington, D.C.  20005

Attn:    Cecile Richards

 July 14, 2014

 Ms. Richards:

The ongoing humanitarian disaster at our southern border is a national tragedy.  The daily slaughter of innocent children in your abortion mills is, in all probability, the worst human disaster in the history of the world.  One can only wonder how many of the desperate little girls now flooding across our border will eventually become clients of your evil empire.  The chaos currently playing out in our border states was instigated by your friends in the White House.  Like you, pain and suffering is of no consequence to them as long as it leads to what they want.

For a few hundred dollars your organization will kill an unborn child on demand, with no regard for its Right to life or the health of its mother.  It’s all about the numbers for Planned Parenthood.  It’s how many babies you can kill and how much money you can get for doing it.  Nothing else matters.  Your business plan is a zero sum game and will eventually collapse under its fatally flawed premise and the weight of your collective immorality.  Until then, millions more innocent children will be doomed to die just as their lives are beginning.

An organization such as yours, founded by a racist eugenicist, is a blight on all of humanity.  Nothing you do serves the greater good or your fellow man.  Killing children for money is an affront to any civilized standard of human behavior; yet your doors will swing open tomorrow morning and the killing will resume.  Ms. Richards, why, in your mind, does an innocent child deserve to die?  Why were you and I allowed to be born and why should any other child be afforded any less consideration?

As I’ve stated many times before, The Universe has a perfect accounting system, and your account is way overdrawn.  The world’s children have paid a heavy price for your crimes against humanity, and you will pay a heavy price when your day of reckoning comes.  I wish you know harm, and I sincerely hope that you reach an awakening and realize the error of your ways before it’s too late.  You have to know somewhere in your heart that the work you do will eventually result in your undoing.  Spending one’s days killing children and fighting to be able to kill even more cannot, under any scenario, end well for Planned Parenthood and its enablers.

Ms. Richards, I’ll continue to ask you to stop killing children and I promise you I will never give up.  The world’s children deserve no less.

As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com.  Write back and I’ll publish it, unedited.

Letter to President Obama #87

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

 July 13, 2014

 Mr. President:

As much as you want to deny it, the current immigration crisis on our southern border was manufactured by your administration.  You put the word out in Central America that if unaccompanied children could make it across the U.S. border, they could stay.  The fact that this would subject tens of thousands of children to rape, abuse, and even death was of no consequence to you.  All you wanted to do was overwhelm our Border Patrol and try to pressure Congress into passing your fatally flawed immigration reform policy.

In your sick mind, human suffering and death are merely collateral damage if it helps promote your naïve, amateurish policies.  As I’ve previously written, you said exactly what you were going to do to America back in 2008.  You made it very clear that your plan was to “fundamentally change America.”  As America’s first ‘American Idol’ President, you’ve shown the world that an uninformed electorate will fall for just about anything as long as it is presented by a slick talker, even if the slick talker has never managed anything even as complicated as a front yard lemonade stand.

This same modus operandi is used by Planned Parenthood and the rest of your friends in America’s abortion industry.  Instead of saying they kill children for money; they call it women’s reproductive health care, a woman’s right to choose, and abortion care.  They propagate the myth of safe abortions when everybody knows that every abortion is performed with the expressed intent of killing a living human being every time.

Mr. President, those who support and endorse Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry are just as guilty as the killers themselves.  Politicians like you who put thousands of desperate children in harm’s way just to promote a political agenda are just as guilty as the coyotes and drug dealers their families pay to get them to our border.  The human suffering and death going on at our southern border is on you.

While thousands of unaccompanied children stream across our border every day, thousands of unborn children are dying every day in our abortion mills.  While we set up Welcome Centers and provide medical care and food for the children coming across our border, no such welcome is given to the over 3,000 babies killed every day on this side of our border.

Mr. President, your willingness to spend billions of dollars to care for these children you lured across the border under false pretences, while you spend hundreds of millions to allow our own to be killed, speaks volumes.   As a citizen of the greatest country on earth, I’m ashamed of my President and most of the 535 members of Congress who swore an oath to preserve and protect the values we hold dear.  We can do better.  We must do better.

Potential

At the moment of conception each of us has already been given an expiration date.  Most of us go through life in denial, thinking we’ll be the exception, while in the back of our mind we all know our time will surely come. Most of us will never begin our last day on earth knowing it is our last day on earth.  When the end comes we will all be held accountable for the time we were given and how we spent our gift of life.  As much as many of us would rather deny this reality, it is reality, none the less.

As I’ve written on numerous occasions, I believe each of us is conceived with unlimited potential.  There are no limits to what each of us can become and achieve other than the limits we impose upon ourselves. Since 1973 in America 56 million Universally unique human beings, with unlimited potential, have been murdered in their mothers’ wombs.  56 million chances to change the world have been lost forever.  When a mother allows her unborn child to be killed she changes the world forever.  There never was or never will be another human being exactly like the one she allows the abortion industry to kill.  56 million lives cut short before their expiration date represents 56 million lost opportunities to change the world.

Each of us has a finite amount of time to make our mark on the world.  We can pursue a life of instant gratification and not discover until it’s too late that we wasted the life we were given; or we can dedicate our life to performing good works, and know when the end comes that we did our best to leave the world a little better than it was before we got here.  I choose the latter.  I choose to tell anyone who will listen that killing unborn children is wrong and that as a society we continue to allow this practice at our own peril.  I choose to call out Planned Parenthood and everyone else complicit in the killing of thousands of American children every day.

I’m prepared to spend the rest of my life in this endeavor and hope to change a few minds and save a few lives along the way.  Every unborn child deserves to live.  Every child deserves to be nurtured and encouraged to express its Universally unique potential.  We are honor bound and morally compelled to protect our children at every stage of their lives.  We usurp this duty when we allow laws to stand that allow millions of innocent children to be killed as a matter of convenience.  We fail as moral human beings when we accept a status quo where evil organizations like Planned Parenthood are able to receive hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars every year while they peddle their industry of death.

The unlimited potential we are all conceived with is bigger than an abortion industry who’s days are numbered.  It’s more powerful than a pro-choice movement that knows in its collective hearts that they are promoting infanticide.  Human potential will always default to a life affirming position.  Human potential will eventually result in every new life being cherished as the priceless gift it is.

 

 

Letter to Nancy Pelosi #3

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi

235 Cannon H.O.B.

Washington, D.C.  20515

 July 11, 2014

  Congresswoman Pelosi:

I’m sitting here wondering if you are abjectly ignorant or simply a pathological liar.  Based on your recent statements, I’m thinking it’s both.  Your statement this week regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Hobby Lobby and other closely held corporations is a prime example.  As you know, or should know, Hobby Lobby’s case was based on its religious convictions that made it morally untenable for them to pay for birth control medications for its employees that would result in the destruction of a fertilized egg.  Their belief, and mine, is that a fertilized egg is a human life.  Hobby Lobby has no problem paying for 16 of the 20 most commonly used birth control products for its employees.  Its only objection is being forced to pay for abortifacients; but you know that, or should.

Ms. Pelosi, every word you uttered regarding this case was an outright lie; but you knew that, or should have.  You said the following: “We should be afraid of this court, that 5 guys are determining which contraceptions are legal or not.  It’s not her bosses business.”  Aside from the fact that your stammering delivery of this statement made it even more unintelligible than the words themselves, nothing you said was even remotely based on fact.   As Megyn Kelly made perfectly clear on Thursday night, every method of birth control that was legal before this week’s decision is still legal now.  The only thing that changed is that a closely held company cannot be forced to pay for methods of contraception that violate their religious convictions.  But you already know this, or should.

To your great delight, 5 guys gave us ObamaCare, and you celebrated.  In 1973 5 guys ruled that Roe v Wade was the law of the land.  41 years and 56 million dead children later, your side continues to celebrate this decision as one of the greatest moments in our history.  As thousands of children die every day in America’s abortion mills, you keep the pressure on to make sure that killing unborn children in the greatest country on earth remains legal.  If the 5 guys you refer to had ruled against Hobby Lobby would you still be referring to members of the Supreme Court as 5 guys?

Congresswoman, this was nothing more than the Court ruling that corporations can’t be forced to violate their religious beliefs, in compliance with a law that you, of all people, co-sponsored.  Your statement against the Court’s ruling was nothing more than your side’s never-ending efforts to devalue human life and to keep the sacrament of abortion on the altar of your radical Utopian vision of total government control.

Ms. Pelosi, shame on you, and shame on your equally clueless constituents who continue to send you back to Congress.

Letter to President Obama #86

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

 July 9, 2014

 Mr. President:

For a country that’s broke, we sure waste a lot of money.  $540 million a year to Planned Parenthood, and over $400 million a year to the Palestinian Authority, controlled largely by Hamas, a brutal terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel. So, just to be clear, your administration thinks the appropriate use of my tax dollars is to pay Planned Parenthood to kill innocent children and to fund terrorists so they can kill the citizens of Israel.

Mr. President, my focus is on saving the world’s unborn children and then protecting them after they’re born.  I work hard at my day job and I don’t want any part in paying for missiles that Hamas lobs into Israel or funding the world’s biggest abortion mill.  If you ask most Americans, I think they will agree with me.

Sir, we are being invaded at our southern border.  Your response, like everything else; throw money at it.  You request $3.7 billion to care for illegal aliens while you spend hundreds of millions of dollars to allow American children to be killed.  I understand why people want to come to America but we can’t just open the gates and let everybody in.  Like any other civilized nation, America has to enforce an orderly process for legal immigration.  The laws are on the books.  All you have to do is enforce them.

Mr. President, you, Nancy Pelosi, and all the other left-wing bleeding hearts say it’s all about the children when the subject of the mass border breach by thousands of Central American children is brought up.  Yet, you say nothing as thousands of American babies are killed every day.  The children streaming across our border are being encouraged to do so by your administration.  They are being exploited in a brazen political maneuver by you to bypass Congress on immigration reform.  They are entering our country illegally and being welcomed with open arms.

The thousands of American children killed today in America’s abortion mills are all here legally and are being executed for the simple act of trying to be born.  Israeli children in the path of Hamas rockets are in danger of being killed by weapons unwillingly paid for by me and my fellow Americans.  Mr. President, our children are our most priceless gift and Israel is one of our closest allies.  We have a moral obligation to protect our children and no less a duty to our allies.

Here’s a suggestion.  Do your job.  Thank you for your continuing inattention to my concerns and those of my fellow Americans.

As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com.  Write back and I’ll publish it, unedited.

Purpose

Last Friday, Independence Day, I had planned on taking the day off.  Unfortunately, the rigors of running a one man office and my plans for a day off didn’t work out.  Maybe next year.  The work I do on my own time on behalf of the pro-life movement really isn’t work to me.  The only challenge my pro-life work presents is the question of when will I finally take the leap of faith I know I need to take in order to work at it full time.  Subtle signs and hints are constantly entering my life, nudging me towards where I know I need to be.

Sitting in my office on July 4th, while I crunched numbers and stressed about multiple projects, I looked out the window and saw cars full of people enjoying their day.  This struck me as one of the more than subtle signs that maybe I should be spending my time in pursuit of something more rewarding.  When I list the things that are important in my life, my day job, where I spend most of my time, is nowhere near the top.  I can feel a quantum shift and massive change coming to my life, and I welcome it.

Over the past year numerous events have taken place in my life that have convinced me that my purpose in life is to protect children.  When the time is right I’ll discuss these events, but for now I will continue to make my case for every child’s Right to life.  We all make choices as to what is important to us.  We arrive at these choices through our life experiences, observations of others, and prayerful contemplation of our true purpose.  Even though the short span of our physical lives are no more than flashes of lightening against the backdrop of eternity, each of us has the potential to perform great deeds and to change the world forever.

Finding one’s purpose in life is only half the battle.  When you finally decide to act upon it, that’s when miracles are possible.  I don’t know if I will ever save a child through the work I do, but the process itself is enlightening.  The research I’ve done over the past year has left me stunned as to how brutal the abortion industry is.  Then again, what would you expect from an industry that thrives by killing innocent children for money?  Every day my determination to educate the world about these barbaric practices and to bring an end the practice of abortion grows stronger.

As I continue the fight, I’m looking into new ways to get my message out.  While my purpose in life is clear, finding the ways to fulfill it are a bit more challenging.  In the mean time I’ll keep paying attention to all the things I used to call coincidences and following the breadcrumbs that will lead me to the goal I have promised I will reach in my lifetime.
