I wrote the following letter to Senator Lindsey Graham nearly 2 years ago. About the only thing that has changed since then is the fact that the Republican Party now controls the Senate. This week Senator Graham introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act before the Senate for the second time. This time it has a chance to pass the Senate before it meets a quick death at the hands of President Obama’s veto pen.
It’s at times like this that men and women of honor and integrity must stand up and fight for what they know is a righteous cause. President Obama must be forced to publicly declare why he is against a bill designed to save unborn children from agonizing dismemberment abortions. It’s time for men and women of honor and integrity to override the President’s veto and to stand on the side of life.
Lindsey Graham is still a dinosaur who should have been run out of the Senate a long time ago, but he’s doing a good thing and I applaud his efforts. Now he needs to finish the job.
Since I wrote this letter, 2 million children have died in America’s abortion mills and about 40,000 were killed after 20 weeks, the point at which they can feel the pain of being killed. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a small step towards ending abortion, but a step that must be taken.

In the interest of full disclosure, I feel that dinosaurs like you, John McCain, and Mitch McConnell should be run out of office and replaced with true conservatives. I must, however, applaud your efforts to bring the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act before the Senate for a vote. Senator Graham, if this bill is passed by the Senate and President Obama’s promised veto is overridden, the lives of at least 15,000 unborn children will be saved every year in America. Sir, these children will be saved from a ghastly, indescribably agonizing death and will go on to claim their Right to life, just like you, me, and every other American was able to, whatever side of this issue we may be on.
Senator Graham, the President seems to have a tenuous grasp, at best, on the truth, so here’s an incontrovertible truth. 100% of the people voting for or against this bill were allowed to be born. Don’t our unborn children deserve at least the same consideration? Should the most pro-abortion President in history, along with his cronies at Planned Parenthood, be allowed to continue the slaughter of America’s children? A third of America’s unborn children die at the hands of America’s abortion mills. Your pro-abortion colleagues in the Senate continue to say they want abortion to be safe, rare, and legal while 1.2 million babies are killed every year in our country. They all know that killing unborn children is neither safe, rare, nor should be legal, but it sounds good to their uninformed constituents and it gets them reelected so, what the hell, let the killing continue.
Senator, it’s gut check time for America. We are sliding into tyranny and it’s time for all men and women of honor and integrity to stand up for the things that really matter; God, life, freedom, and family. It’s time to stop worrying about elections or the consequences of doing what we know is right. Senator, you have some heavy lifting to do in order to get the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act through the Democrat controlled Senate. Ask your colleagues who are against this bill to explain to the American people why they feel that unborn children, who can feel the agony of being ripped apart, should continue to be killed in our country.
Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobbyists are hard at work twisting arms in the Senate to defeat this bill. Sir, the lives of our children are worth fighting for and worth whatever price we have to pay, personally or professionally, to stop the killing. Senator Graham, in closing, a simple quote from Ronald Reagan: “We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child.”
