Letter to President Obama #96

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

 September 29, 2014

 Mr. President:

While the American taxpayers are spending millions to bomb ISIS, we are also spending millions to protect the assorted thugs, dictators, and despots currently assembled at the U.N.  And while we spend millions to protect the tyrants of the world we are spending hundreds of millions of dollars every year to assist Planned Parenthood in the killing of our unborn children.

I have a suggestion; actually a couple of suggestions.  Tell the U.N. to get out of town and don’t come back.  Tell them to stick their diplomatic immunity where the sun doesn’t shine and to pay all their outstanding parking tickets or face arrest.  Tell them to hold their annual anti-America, anti-Israel lie fest somewhere else.  And while you’re at it, let them know that they will not be getting one more dollar from America.

When you finish with the U.N. get Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards on the phone and let her know that the U.S. taxpayers will no longer be funding her industry of death.  Tell her that if her organization wants to kill over 300,000 unborn children every year they’ll have to do it without the help of unwilling contributors like me.  Let her know that if Planned Parenthood can’t make it without our money, maybe they should think about doing something else for a living.

Mr. President, I’m under no delusion that the Narcissist in Chief would dare to insult his friends in the U.N. or the abortion industry, but a guy can dream can’t he?  Think about it.  If we sever all ties with the U.N. and the abortion industry we can save billions of dollars every year.  Instead of paying to have innocent children killed and paying to support rogue nations we can spend our money to feed hungry kids and to insure that every unborn child’s Right to life is honored.

Mr. President, the billions of dollars we waste every year represent the total lifetime earnings of millions of my fellow Americans.  Do you seriously think that any American wants to work his or her entire life to fund the latest government boondoggle or to pay an evil organization that kills our children by the thousands every day?  Most of my fellow Americans want the same thing.  They want to go to work, take care of their family, and live in peace.  Nobody goes to work every day hoping they can make enough money to pay for a couple more abortions by Planned Parenthood.

Mr. President; snap out of it!  You can’t phone in the last 2 years of your Presidency.  We all know right from wrong and we all know what to do.  Let’s stipulate that you’ve royally screwed up the first nearly 6 years of your Presidency and move on.  You still have time to institute change that we actually can believe in.  Step up, do the right things, and you’ll be amazed.

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 Planned Parenthood #52

 Ms. Richards:

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell came out last week and said he “got it wrong” with his recent disciplinary debacle over acts of domestic violence by his players.  I’ll give credit where credit is due.  He manned up, admitted he screwed up, and pledged to make it right moving forward.  We’ll see where it goes, but at least he is making an effort to do what we all know is right.  Ms. Richards, if only you and your colleagues in America’s abortion industry could do the same.

The civilized world knows in its heart that killing unborn children as a matter of convenience is wrong.  As the leader of the world’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, you are the public face of infanticide for hire.  One can reasonably assume that you are a marginally intelligent woman. You have to know that you are paid in blood money.  The industry that pays your salary and the industry that you aggressively promote will kill over a million unborn children this year.

The egregious behavior by many NFL stars has cast a spotlight, and rightly so, on the problem of domestic violence.  The lethal behavior that goes on daily in your clinics is hardly noticed.  Over 3,000 children die every day in America’s abortion mills.  If domestic violence caused over 3,000 deaths every day in America do you think it would be an even bigger news story?

Domestic violence is the flavor of the week for the news media.  In a short time they’ll move on to something else.  When will the daily killing of thousands of children get the same attention?  Our society gravitates towards the trendy topic of the moment while paying little or no attention to the true evil that your organization represents.  While Planned Parenthood is busy killing our children, many in our increasingly clueless nation occupy themselves with banal reality TV shows and keeping up with the Kardashians.  They don’t have time for the truly important things in life; things like watching an innocent child sleep or fighting to allow every unborn child to be born.

Ms. Richards, if you’re not working to solve the problem, you’re part of the problem.  Planned Parenthood is definitely part of the problem.  Not only will you kill over 300,000 children this year; you’ll lobby to be allowed to kill even more.  While most of my fellow Americans remain ambivalent towards the intentional killing of over a million innocent children this year, you’re organization will continue to kill them at a rate of 1 every 94 seconds.  Your industry, as a whole, will kill more than 2 unborn children every minute of every hour of every day.

I refuse to let the slaughter of my grandsons’ future friends and playmates continue unchallenged.  I will continue to fight, until I no longer can, to end the killing.  Your cooperation by immediately closing your doors would be greatly appreciated.

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 #3 to NARAL: One Year later

About this time last year I was engaged in a one-sided debate with NARAL’s Ilyse Hogue.  I was writing letters and she was not responding. Somehow, my letters got me on NARAL’s mailing list, so now I get copies of all their twisted mailings to their supporters, urging them to work against people like me; people they call anti-choice.  I’m not anti-choice.  I make hundreds of choices every day.  What I’m against is killing innocent children as a matter of convenience and paying the executioner to carry out the deed.

I was in the company of my preemie grandson when I wrote the following letter; one of hundreds I’ve written to members of the abortion industry over the last couple years, and one of hundreds that has gone unanswered.  I’ll keep writing and I won’t give up.  I know in my heart that I’m fighting for a righteous cause and that failure is not an option.

I’ll keep waiting for Ms. Hogue’s reply.

Attn:    Ilyse Hogue

 September 16, 2013

 Ms. Hogue:

Every time I visit your website I’m stunned by the distortion and lies you continue to spread about abortion.  Your references to safe abortion are absurd to the nth degree.  No logical argument can be made for calling a procedure designed specifically to kill a human being safe.  Your assertion that abortion is a right is equally absurd.  While abortion is legal in many cases, it is not a right.  Just so you know, rights cannot be conferred by law; they can only be protected by it.  No woman has ever been born or ever will be born with the right to kill her unborn child.  Rights such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are a package deal and are endowed upon each of us by our Creator at the very instant He grants us His animating spark of life; starting each of us on our individually unique journeys.

Ms. Hogue, my pro-life philosophy stems from my role as a father and grandfather.  Just before I composed this letter I fed my 5 week old grandson.  He was due to be born on the 14th but made his initial appearance 5 weeks early.  As I watch him sleep I can’t imagine life without him and still can’t believe that, as I fed him, the abortion industry you promote was killing his future friends and playmates at a rate of 1 every 26 seconds.  1 out of 3 of his future friends will be killed before they are born.

Ms Hogue, you advocate a pro-choice position on abortion.  You and I both know that pro-choice is the same as pro-abortion; all that’s lacking is the courage to say what you really believe.  I have the courage to say what I believe.  I believe that every unborn child, without exception, has the right to be born and is endowed with the same right to life as you and I.  While I’m saying what I believe; I also believe it is the epitome of hypocrisy for anyone who was allowed to be born to take a stand against allowing any other human being the same accommodation.

Despite what you profess, your cause is all about money and power.  If the abortion industry truly believes in what it does they should kill babies for free.  If you truly believe in your mission to protect, what you advocate to be, a woman’s right to have her child killed, you should stop accepting a salary for your services.

Ms. Hogue, after every visit to your website I feel that I’ve been in the presence of pure evil.  Your organization’s dedication to insuring that millions of innocent children can be killed as a simple matter of choice is a staggering display of utter disregard for the most basic of human rights; the right to life.  In spite of everything your organization has done and everything that it stands for, I believe in redemption.  Change your mission statement and work to protect our unborn children.  It’s never too late to do what you know in your heart is right.

Role Models

Like most guys in America, I’m a football fan.  And like most people, I’m appalled at the lawlessness of many of its players.  Whether they want to be or not, professional athletes are role models.  When they sign the big contract and, more importantly, when they sign an autograph for a young fan they are role models.  If they don’t want the responsibility of being a role model, all they have to do is walk away from the money and walk away from the fame.  And if they don’t want to be famous for all the wrong reasons all they have to do is live a principle centered life.

As much as many of us would like to blame our nation’s woes on the NFL, they’re not the problem.  Violence and drug abuse are much more prevalent in the general public than the NFL.  When a professional athlete commits a violent act against a woman or spanks a child it makes headlines.  When over 3,000 innocent children are killed every day in America’s abortion mills the news media remains silent.  Like it or not, we are all role models. Children who grow up in a society that allows its unborn children to be killed for money will become adults who think abortion is an innocuous procedure where no one gets hurt.  As role models to our children it is our responsibility to teach them the value of every human life.  As role models we have a responsibility to expose the horrors of abortion and to shine the light of truth on those in the business of killing children for money.

I can only imagine the role models that inspire an abortionist at Planned Parenthood to make his or her living by killing innocent children.  No child grows up wanting to kill other human beings for a living.  The natural inclination of all human beings from the moment of conception is toward life.  As role models, we have the opportunity to guide our children to a life of honor and integrity.  Our children and grandchildren are watching all the time.  Our actions and inactions speak volumes to them.   When they see us stand on principle and when they see us do the wrong things, they’re learning and their lives are being shaped.

None of us know how many lives we can change with a simple act of kindness or a selfless sacrifice when we think no one is watching. Teaching kindness to a child can touch countless other lives as the child models its life on your teachings.  Teaching kindness to a child begins with the ultimate act of kindness; allowing it to be born.  Respecting the sanctity of life doesn’t have to be taught; it only needs to be nurtured.  Teaching kindness isn’t difficult.  Just be kind.

One More Week

What would you do if you learned today that you had one more week to live?  No one else could know that you had just one week to establish your legacy and to finally realize what is truly important in your life.  Would you spend your last week in hedonistic pursuits or spend it in service to others?  Would you worry about that deadline at work or the co-worker that you just can’t seem to get along with?  Would you be standing in line for latest smart phone or staring at a moonlit sky in awe of an endless universe?

This morning in America the one week countdown to the end of their life is starting for the more than 20,000 unborn children who will die this week in our nation’s abortion mills.  They won’t be given notice that the end is near.  Instead, they will be ripped unceremoniously from their mothers’ wombs and discarded like so much trash.  They won’t get one final chance to make a difference in the world or to feel the loving embrace of another human being.  One more week of life for these children would give people like me one more week to convince the world that killing innocent children as a matter of convenience is not the way to go.

One more week doesn’t sound like much time, but when the end gets near what would you give for just a little bit more?  When you start the inevitable review of your life as the end grows closer, what would you give for a brief reprieve, just so you can make amends for the things you know need to be made right?  I can only imagine what goes through the mind of an abortionist as they spend their last days on earth.  Do they feel they are leaving the world a better place because they killed thousands of innocent children or do they feel a sense of impending doom as a result of the conscious decisions they made?  If I’m given the time for a life review before my time here ends, I hope I can look back and know that I made a positive difference and maybe even saved some lives.  I hope I can look back and reflect on the day our nation and the world abandoned the practice of abortion.

Maybe we should all live our lives like we have one week left.  Maybe we should all approach life with a sense of abandon and commit fully to working for the good of others and standing up for what we know in our hearts is right.  Mountains can be moved in a week and the world can change in an instant.  It’s never too late to change the course of one’s life or to finally realize the impact one life can have on the world.  Tick- tock.

Degrees of Outrage #3

As a non-participating member of the herd, I enjoy studying them as they bounce from crisis to crisis, each of them seeking validation by expressing more outrage over the most recent crisis du jour than their fellow herd members.  The most recent focus of their collective outrage is Ray Rice.  Domestic violence is a serious problem and Ray Rice got what he deserved.  I agree that outrage over acts of violence against anyone is the natural human response.  What I have a problem with are expressions of outrage with no intent by most of those expressing it to do anything to fix the problem that their outrage is directed towards.  How many of you reading this will do anything to prevent domestic violence, put the well-being of others ahead of yourself, or take a stand based on principle to protect those who can’t protect themselves?

Far too many of us are willing to jump on the bandwagon every time the news cycle jumps to the next big story, spouting our outrage and then moving on; the focus of our outrage quickly dispatched to the recesses of our short term memory.  As I’ve written before, I believe outrage is a waste of time and effort unless its energy is directed towards a remedy for the outrageous.  We all have a choice to make when we express our outrage over something.  We can remain members of the herd and compliment one another for caring enough to express our anger, then move on and do nothing productive, or break from the herd and take positive, measurable action.

About a year and a half ago I broke from the herd.  I made a conscious decision to spend the rest of my life, if necessary, to end abortion and to close the doors of those organizations in the business of killing unborn babies for money.   I quit caring about what the other members of the herd thought about me and made a commitment to a cause more important than myself.  I find it outrageous that the greatest country on earth allows over a million of our unborn children to be killed every year.  I find it outrageous that our elected officials, sworn to protect the rights of every American, look the other way as thousands of innocent children are killed every day by Planned Parenthood and our nation’s abortion industry.

I would be lying if I said I don’t sometimes feel anger or animus towards those who support abortion or actually perform them.  I’m more saddened than angry that it is legal to choose to have your unborn child killed in America.  I choose to channel these emotions towards the achievement of a worthy goal.  If my friends who choose to remain in the herd want to express outrage over something, I urge them to do so in memory of the thousands of unborn children killed today and the thousands doomed to die tomorrow.  I urge them to take definitive action to end the injustice that sparked their outrage and to commit themselves to serving others.

Letter to Planned Parenthood #16 Republished

Pro Life Pop Pop

Last year, on September 11, I was reliving the emotions I had felt 12 years earlier.  I couldn’t believe it had been 12 years since Islamic terrorists attacked my country and killed 3,000 of my fellow citizens.  On the eve of 9/11/14 I have a lot to be thankful for; 2 wonderful grandsons and a clear vision of how I want to spend the rest of my life.  Tomorrow, as America mourns for those we lost on 9/11, Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry will be busy killing tiny humans in their mothers’ wombs.  I will not allow their actions to go unchallenged and I will not rest until our nation stops allowing our unborn children to be killed for a fee.

Remember how you felt on 9/11 and resolve that by 9/11 of next year you will have taken positive, measurable actions in service to your fellow man.  Do…

Priorities #2

What’s the most important thing in your life; your home, your money, your job, being liked, being famous?  How many of these things will you take with you at the end of your life?  Do you want to make the world a better place or do you want to leave the heavy lifting to others while you pursue happiness with material things?  I live in a nice neighborhood, my wife drives a Mercedes, and I’ve spent a large part of my life in pursuit of the trappings of material success.  More and more every day I realize that happiness is found in the simple things, and comes from giving, not taking.

These days my happiness comes from the laughter of my grandsons.  I measure anything I consider beautiful against the indescribably beautiful sight of watching a hungry child eat.  A big weekend for me is one that I spend with my kids and grand-kids.  In my younger days I looked forward to going to work and advancing my career.  Now I look forward to the end of my work day so I can work at my night job; ending the practice of abortion and putting the abortion mills that kill thousands of unborn children every day out of business.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but as I get older I think more about what I want to look back on if I have the opportunity to reflect on my life when the end comes near.  I want to know that I did more with my life than just take up space and annoy more than just a few people.  I want to save at least one child from the horror of abortion and inspire others to pick up the fight if abortion isn’t ended in my lifetime.  I want my children and grandchildren to be proud of what I stood for and to know that living a principled life is the key to happiness and true success.

Living a life without priorities is about the same as target shooting with no idea where the target is.   How do you accomplish your goals if you don’t know what they are?  Being aware of human suffering and choosing to do nothing just makes you part of the problem.  Waiting for someone else to face down evil is just plain dumb.  Whether I succeed or fail in my fight to end abortion, only time will tell.   All I do know is that I won’t look the other way and leave the job of saving our children to someone else.

We all need priorities in our life.  We all need to have a goal that we are willing to sacrifice everything to achieve.  If you’re working for a cause that you’re not willing to lose everything for, you’re working for the wrong cause.  If you don’t have a burning desire to change the world and serve your fellow man, why don’t you?

Grandparent’s Day 2014

Without a doubt, the greatest joy in my life is being the grandparent of 2 wonderful grandsons.  My oldest grandson has had some significant challenges over the past year, and watching him struggle and overcome these challenges has been an inspiration.  My youngest grandson, born 5 weeks early, experienced and overcame his own set of challenges, spending 11 days in NICU while his tiny lungs developed to the point that he could finally go home.  Both my grandsons remind me of the fragility of human life and how quickly the things we take for granted can change.  They remind me that every life is precious and provide me the inspiration to fight for every unborn child’s Right to life.

Being a grandparent is everything I had hoped it would be and more.  I treasure the time I’m able to spend running through the grass and playing with my 3 year old.  My 1 year old is taking his first steps, and watching the look of sheer joy on his face as he teeters toward my outstretched arms is heartwarming.  I want every grandparent to experience the joy of spending time with their grandchildren.

Unfortunately, every year in America over a million opportunities to become a grandparent are denied by Planned Parenthood and our nation’s abortion industry.  They kill thousands of children every day and foster a culture of death instead of one of nurturing.  The very same people who kill children daily for money go home to their own children and grandchildren every night.  Those of us who were allowed to be born should not be deciding who gets to live and who must die.

Last night, after a fun day of running and playing, I embraced my 3 year old grandson as he lay his head on my shoulder and fell asleep.  Knowing that he fell asleep in my arms, knowing that his Pop Pop loves him beyond all measure means everything to me.  As I carried him up the stairs to his room I knew I was carrying one of God’s priceless creations and was overcome with gratitude for the privilege of having him in my life.  I tucked him safety into his bed, looking forward to all the fun days we have ahead of us, knowing that none of them are guaranteed and that all of them must be treasured.

Grandparent’s Day should be more than just a date on the calendar.  It should be a reminder to all parents and grandparents of the sacred obligation we have been entrusted with; the care and protection of our children and grandchildren.  This obligation doesn’t begin at birth.  It begins at conception.  We have a duty as the patriarchs and matriarchs of our families to instill a respect and reverence for the sanctity of every life, at every stage of life into our children and grandchildren.   Happy Grandparent’s Day!


Sept. 5, 2014

Right about this time last year the worst President in the history of our great nation was making noises about attacking Syria.  His sole intent was to garner political points, not to help anyone or save any lives.  In the end, just like every other time during his tenure that a tough decision had to be made, he was all talk and no action.  A year later he is all over the place with his statements about what he will or won’t do to to defeat ISIS.  The world is on fire and he is saying we can transform a bloodthirsty terrorist organization into a manageable problem.

Elections have consequences and poor decisions result in poor outcomes.  America gets the leaders we deserve, and like it or not, we’re stuck with President Obama for 2 more years.  Last Sept. 8th I wrote the following letter to the President.  I wanted to convey my contempt for his naivete and utter disregard for protecting innocent lives.  One year later it’s rather apparent that he didn’t get the message.


The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave.  NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

 September 8, 2013


Mr. President:

I just wanted to remind you that while the world watches with baited breath as you speak Tuesday night, America’s abortion industry will still be killing our unborn children at a rate of 1 every 26 seconds.  While we wait to see if you will unilaterally, albeit unconstitutionally decide to lob cruise missiles, at a million and a half bucks a copy, into Syria, America’s abortion mills will end another busy day with a final tally of about 3,300 dead babies.

Your friends at Planned Parenthood will be watching too.  They won’t be worried about the cost of this operation or the death toll though.  They know that they’ll still be getting their forced contribution from the American taxpayers this year of over $500 million; or the cost of somewhere between 300 and 400 cruise missiles.  Mr. President, Planned Parenthood will kill over 330,000 American babies with the $500 million they get from our government this year.  How many Syrian children will your ‘limited operation’ kill?  Have you done the calculation?  Do you care?

Mr. President, what is the logic behind killing innocent civilians with explosives because either their government or radical Islamists killed innocent civilians with chemical weapons?  Innocent children are killed every day in America with lethal chemicals.  Every day, toxic saline amniocentesis abortions are performed and every day lethal RU 486 drugs are administered to kill unborn American children and you say nothing. Every day the death toll in America’s abortion mills is more than double the highest reported number of deaths attributed to the chemical weapons attack you’ve chosen to make a “measured and appropriate’ response to.

Here’s a suggestion.  Make a “measured and appropriate” response to the killing of 1.2 million unborn children in America this year.  If you’re willing to spend billions of dollars to participate in a civil war between Al Qaeda supported rebels and a brutal dictator, surely you’re willing to put forth at least as much effort to defend the lives of America’s unborn children.  If you feel that the killing of millions of unborn children on your watch isn’t important enough for you to weigh in on, please explain why.  I’d like to know.

Mr. President, this is where I normally advise the recipients of my letters that I’ll be publishing them on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com.  I’m sure the NSA knows this already.  I’ll publish your replies and theirs too should either of you choose to reply; unedited of course.
