Letter to President Obama #98

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

 November 8, 2014

 Mr. President:

BS and big words will only take you so far.  At some point you have to actually do something of substance.  You recently said that every one of your policies were on the ballot this year.  You were right.  And last Tuesday every single one of them was repudiated by me and my fellow Americans.  You came into office promising hope and change, and now after 6 years of incompetent leadership and failed policies, we are all just hoping for change.

I’m ashamed to be living under the leadership of the most abortion-friendly President in history.  During the first 6 years of your Presidency over 7 million unborn children have been killed by Planned Parenthood, the world’s largest killer of children, and their colleagues in America’s abortion industry.  Not only have you done nothing to stop the killing, you have actively promoted Planned Parenthood’s agenda.  You have even gone so far as to say “God bless Planned Parenthood.”  I don’t want to speak for God, but I don’t think He is throwing out a whole lot of blessings to an organization that kills hundreds of thousands of innocent children every year.

Mr. President, during the first 6 years of your Presidency the American taxpayers have unwillingly shelled out over $3 billion to Planned Parenthood.  How many hungry children could have been fed with the $3 billion Planned Parenthood used to kill them?  While the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act sat on Harry Reid’s desk for the last year and a half over 1.5 million unborn children died in America’s abortion mills.  Something is terribly wrong in America when the Senate Majority Leader is forced to sit on a bill designed to save pain-capable babies from agonizing death by dismemberment just so the President won’t have to explain why he vetoed it.

I’ve asked Harry Reid to allow a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act several times, and he has done nothing.  I’ve asked Mitch McConnell to do the same when he assumes Leadership.  I’m confident that the Senate, under Mitch McConnell, will pass this bill and send it to you for your signature.  You can then explain to the American people why you don’t feel compelled to prevent over 20,000 pain-capable unborn children from being brutally killed every year by your friends in the abortion industry.

Mr. President, even you know that killing children as a matter of convenience, and for a fee is wrong.  Allowing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to become law will be a small, but critically important step towards ending abortion in America.  Do the right thing and sign this bill into law.

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 Mitch McConnell #1

Senator Mitch McConnell

317 Russell Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C.  20510

  November 7, 2014

 Senator McConnell:

As the presumptive Majority Leader of the United States Senate, you have a lot of work to do.  You have to undo 6 years of incompetent, corrupt leadership by Harry Reid and President Obama.  Important legislation that your predecessor would not allow to be voted upon must be brought to the Senate and allowed to have an up or down vote.  The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act cleared the House nearly a year and a half ago and has yet to be brought up for a vote in the Senate.

Senator, I respectfully request that your first act as Senate Majority Leader be the introduction of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act for consideration by the full Senate.  Nothing you do on your first day as Majority Leader could be more important than allowing a vote on a bill designed to save thousands of innocent children from suffering horribly painful deaths every year.  Every member of the Senate knows that killing innocent children is wrong.  Make them take a public stand for or against allowing pain-capable unborn children to be legally killed in America.

Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry have lobbied and will continue to lobby heavily against the passage of this bill.  Killing children is how they make money and they will stop at nothing to deal with anything that threatens their bottom line.  President Obama has promised to veto it if it comes to his desk.  Passing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and overriding the President’s veto won’t be easy; few things in life worth doing are.

Last Tuesday Americans sent a clear message to you and your colleagues that business as usual has worn out its welcome.  The majority of the Senate is now pro-life.  You have the power to end the grisly practice of late-term abortion.  America will be watching to see if you and your caucus have the will and the courage of conviction to do right by the most innocent among us, our unborn children.

Senator McConnell, if men and women of honor and integrity know of an evil practice and do nothing to stop it, they offer their tacit endorsement of it.  Not taking action on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would be tantamount to signing the death warrants for over 20,000 American children every year.   I urge you to pass the bill, override the President’s veto, and to stand proudly on the side of life.
