In June of 2013 the House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Your gatekeeper in the Senate, Harry Reid, blocked a vote on this bill so you wouldn’t be forced to veto it. He ran out the clock so you wouldn’t be placed in the position of having to explain to the American people why you don’t object to allowing pain-capable babies to be killed.
The House is poised to pass this bill again on or about January 22 and new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised to bring it to a vote in the Senate. With any luck, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will be on your desk by the end of February. What will your justification be for not signing this bill? Do you know anything about the procedure that is employed to kill a late-term baby, or worse yet, do you not care?
Dilation and Evacuation, the procedure used to kill late-term babies, is brutally effective. The unborn, pain-capable child is systematically ripped apart, limb by limb, until it dies and all its body parts can be removed from the mother’s body. About 20,000 babies are killed in this manner every year in America. They experience the agony of every rip and tear until they die. They don’t have a voice and their screams can’t be heard. They’re totally at the mercy of a supposedly civilized society.
Over a million unborn children are killed every year in America’s abortion mills, so the 20,000 or so that this bill addresses may not seem to be a big number; some may even consider it insignificant; nothing more than a rounding error. Mr. President, every single one of these lives matters and every single one is priceless. Your cronies at Planned Parenthood don’t agree. They place a value on the head of every child they kill; that being the fee they get for killing it.
Mr. President, signing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a no-brainer. There is no logical reason to veto a bill designed solely to protect innocent children. I ask that you place politics aside, and look inside your heart when this bill reaches your desk. Imagine the pain and suffering that will come to an end with a simple stroke of your pen. Sir, you are on the record as saying that you have a phone and a pen and that you intend to use them. I implore you to use your pen in the name of every innocent child that is simply striving to exercise its God-given right to life.
