Letter to Lindsey Graham: Reposted

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.

Senator Graham:

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.”

Thoughts on Joe Biden

When it comes to politics, there’s little, if anything, I agree with Joe Biden on.  Having said that, I’m impressed with Joe as a family man.  The dignity and class he has shown, with the recent passing of his son Beau, is inspiring.  No parent should ever have to bury their child, and Joe has had to do it twice.  I watched yesterday as he comforted his daughter-in-law and grandchildren and saw a man placing the needs of others over his own.  At times like this it is only right that we place our differences aside and stand together in support and love for a man who has had more than his share of tragedy and loss.

Mr. Vice-President, we will continue to remain on opposite sides politically and ideologically, but I will forever respect you for your grace in the face of adversity.  May God’s blessings be with you and your family and may you take comfort in the fact that your beloved Beau will suffer no more in the Kingdom of Heaven.


Positive Outcomes

So far, over the course of my life, no matter how badly I’ve screwed things up it always seems to work out for me.  A few years ago I decided to leave the industry that I had made a very good living at for over 30 years to take a crack at a totally different career path.  I failed miserably and was fired 5 months later.  Within a day of being fired I was receiving unsolicited job offers, and a week later was working again in the industry I had voluntarily left, for more money than I had ever made. Looking back, it’s always been that way for me.  Fall down, get back up, end up stronger.

Trying not to take anything too seriously seems to work for me; for everything except working to end abortion.  For most things in all our lives we can fail repeatedly and try again as many times as we want until we get it right.  When you’re trying to save lives, failure is not an option.  The only positive outcome in the fight for life is to save a life.  And the only positive outcome for an unborn child is the opportunity to fully express its universally unique life.  I truly believe that if you make every effort to do right, good things will follow.  And I absolutely believe that standing on the side of life is the right thing to do.

Positive thinking is a good thing, but positive outcomes are what really matters, and they will only be realized as a result of definable action and measurable results.  Einstein once said “Nothing happens until something moves.”  He was right.  You can sit around thinking about what you want to do and the goals you want to achieve, but until you get off your ass and make it happen, nothing will.

A little over 2 years ago when I was called to end abortion I vowed that I would not leave this world without saving more lives than I could ever imagine I could.   Every family has at least one member that the others consider weird, eccentric, or just a little off.  I’m that guy in my family.  I’m really not sure what my closest friends and family members think about my pro-life views; whether I’m an embarrassment or whether they are proud of me. I would prefer the latter, but what I am doing is much more important to me than the good opinion of others; even my family.

Amid all the suffering and death that occurs daily in America’s abortion mills, I see a positive outcome.  I see a world in the not too distant future where the doors of every abortion mill are locked shut for the last time.  Whether my efforts or the efforts of someone else helps bring an end to abortion makes no difference to me.  A positive outcome, the safety of every unborn child is all that matters.


Not long ago, Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards tweeted “Black lives matter.”  As the President of Planned Parenthood, Ms. Richards heads an organization that was founded by a racist eugenicist named Margaret Sanger. Sanger’s stated intent upon establishing Planned Parenthood’s first abortion clinics in poor, inner city neighborhood’s was the extermination of the black race, to whom she referred as “human weeds.”  Since 1973, America’s abortion industry, with Planned Parenthood leading the way, has killed 16 million black children.  Every day in America, over 1,400 black children are aborted.

As an epidemic of young black men killing young black men is spreading throughout our nation’s largest cities, Planned Parenthood is killing thousands of unborn black children every week.  Black lives don’t matter to Planned Parenthood; neither do white lives or hispanic lives.  The only thing that matters to them is how many innocent children, of whatever race, they can kill and how much money they can make doing it.  Every minute and a half Planned Parenthood kills another innocent child, and every year, courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers, they are given over $500 million of our hard-earned money.

Planned Parenthood operates as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization while making billions of dollars killing children. A large portion of the income they get from killing children is used to support pro-abortion political candidates who, in turn, push legislation to make it easier to have your unborn child killed.  So, the money from unwilling taxpayers like me that is funneled to Planned Parenthood, from Planned Parenthood to their cronies in politics, and from their cronies in politics back to them, is then used by Planned Parenthood so they can kill even more children.  The circle of corruption is complete and everyone loses, especially our unborn children.

Every year Planned Parenthood bestows the Margaret Sanger Award upon some liberal sap in a Kabuki Theatre attempt to appear legitimate.  The award, in honor of their homicidal founder, is happily received by said liberal sap and everyone in the room smiles and basks in the glow of their collective ignorance and callous disregard for the lives of innocent children.  The next morning the killing resumes.

A few years ago Hillary Clinton received the Margaret Sanger Award.  During her acceptance speech she gushed that she admired Margaret Sanger’s vision.  That tells me all I need to know about her ethics and lack of character.  The woman who wants to be the leader of the free world is rabidly pro-abortion and quick to accuse anyone standing up for a child’s right to life of waging a war on women.

Hypocrisy, as I see it, is saying one thing and doing another.  It’s portraying yourself as caring and compassionate while supporting a cause that has resulted in 60 million unborn children dying senseless deaths since 1973.  Cecile Richards and Hillary Clinton are hypocrites.  They represent the smiling faces of pure evil.  Both have shown that there is nothing they won’t do for money, and the blood of millions of innocent children is on their hands.

Hypocrisy always results in the undoing of of those who practice it.  The universe’s perfect accounting system will eventually catch up with Cecile Richards and Hillary Clinton.  The price will be heavy and the debt will be paid.  The lives of Cecile Richards and Hillary Clinton are just as priceless as every life taken by the abortion industry they both support.  They both have had the chance to change the world for the better.  They both have failed miserably.
