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.

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.
My letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com. Should you choose to reply, I’ll publish it, unedited.
