As the heartland of our country burns over the death of a young man, your abortion mills are busy churning out dead children by the thousands. No one knows for sure what happened in Ferguson, but what happens daily in your clinics is painfully obvious. You won’t find me or my friends on the pro-life side rioting in the streets or looting your facilities. We oppose what you do to the world’s children and we all are committed to ending the killing. We will do so peacefully and reject the use of violence to achieve our goals.
The handful of individuals in Ferguson, Mo. committing violent acts and destruction of property are hypocrites. They claim to oppose violence while being violent. They claim to be outraged by what they have pre-judged as a criminal act while they commit criminal acts. The handful of troublemakers in Ferguson are a lot like Planned Parenthood. You claim to be soldiers against a war on women while you kill their children and scar them for life. You claim to be a health care provider while killing hundreds of thousands of innocent children every year.
While a tiny percentage of the protesters in Ferguson are thugs, at least they haven’t killed anyone yet. You’ll kill thousands of children this week and do it all over again next week. In the 10 days since Michael Brown’s death over 30,000 unborn children have been killed in America by Planned Parenthood and your colleagues in the abortion industry. The news media isn’t covering these deaths 24/7 even though each and every one of these children was just as much alive as you and I when their mothers walked through your doors.
I’ve heard a lot about moral equivalency over the past few months. Many in the media and political left have referred to Israel and Hamas as equals even though Hamas is a terrorist organization. They portray the violent protesters and police in Ferguson as equals. They call abortion, the intentional killing of a human being, a simple medical procedure. I think a lot of people want to impose a moral equivalency upon diametric opposites because they don’t have the moral courage to stand for something. Claiming to be pro-choice is an example. If you don’t oppose the killing of innocent children you are for it. If you claim that a mother has the right to have her unborn child killed you endorse abortion on demand.
Ms. Richards, I proudly stand on the side of life. I was granted the gift of life just like you and I’m determined to make the most of it, and to fight for every unborn child’s Right to it.
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.
