The Problem With Abortion

The following piece that I wrote a year ago brings to mind the choice that America has in November. If we elect Bernie Sanders or Monica Lewinsky’s ex-boyfriend’s wife, we continue the string of pro-abortion, pro-Planned Parenthood Presidents that we’ve had under B.O. America’s children deserve better than being conceived in a country where the likelihood that they will be intentionally killed before they are born is a little better than 1 in 3.
Both choices on the Democrat side promise freebies to everyone and punishment to anyone with the audacity to be more successful than the government thinks they should be allowed to be. They promise to support Planned Parenthood and to make abortion more accessible, and to pay for it with our tax dollars.
Bernie will never be President, and based solely on her position on abortion, I’m voting for ABC (Anybody But Hillary).

Contrary to popular opinion, the problem with abortion isn’t that it’s legal; the problem is that otherwise rational people don’t have a problem with it.  Abortion is the end result of a systemic erosion of basic values in our society and a conditioned response to a no consequences mindset.  We got to this point by entertaining ourselves with senseless acts of violence, and in the process became desensitized to senseless acts of violence; like abortion. We’ve abandoned the concept of personal responsibility and bought into a herd mentality that we’ve been tricked into thinking will absolve us of the consequences of our individual actions.

In January of 1973, five out of nine old white guys in black robes declared that Roe v Wade was the law of the land. Over the last 42 years nearly 60 million unborn children have been legally killed under cover of law.  The law isn’t…

Through the Eyes of a Child

The day before my oldest grandson and best buddy turns 5, I’m thinking about a piece I wrote last May. Him, along with his little brother, are my main inspiration to work on behalf of the pro-life movement. Watching a hungry child eat, or a happy child at play are two of the most beautiful things in life. Observing them noodling out a problem through the perspective of total innocence is a lesson on how to live.
While we twist ourselves into knots over problems that really aren’t problems, they’re happy playing with the box their latest toy came in.
Children know how to prioritize: sleep, eat, play, repeat.
Watch a child. View your next so called problem through the eyes of a child and learn again to approach every day with a sense of awe.

I marveled on Mother’s Day at the look of sheer joy on my grandson’s face as he romped barefoot through the lawn sprinkler in my backyard.  He wasn’t thinking of the thousands of innocent children who would die in America’s abortion mills just a day later.  He was living in the moment, and feeling the joy of being alive; knowing that he was safe with me.  I shared his joy, but knew that by the next Mother’s Day we spend together, over 1 million unborn children will have been intentionally killed in the country I love.

We can learn a lot from our children and grandchildren.  I watch my grandsons as they experience, for the first time, all the things that most of us take for granted.  They haven’t been taught how to hate anyone or to be biased against anyone who looks different or speaks in a different language…

Moral Equivalence

Very little has changed since I wrote this piece a year ago. The day after we celebrated Thanksgiving the killing resumed in America’s abortion mills. The day after Thanksgiving ISIS is still spreading terror, and our feckless President still doesn’t have a plan to stop them. Measured responses against evil never work. Evil must be addressed with the intent and effort to totally annihilate evil, or evil will prevail.
A violent organization like ISIS can only be defeated with violence. A violent industry like America’s abortion industry can only be brought to its knees through acts of non-violence and a return to respect for the sanctity of every human life.
Attempting to grant moral equivalency, due to a lack of courage, or in the name of a political agenda, is a zero sum game and only leads to more of what you don’t want.
Moral equivalence is tough to prove and sought by everyone and everything seeking to justify the unjustifiable.

I’ve heard a lot of talk lately about moral equivalence.  When Israel retaliated against Hamas, after enduring a barrage of thousands of rockets, our President asked both sides to show restraint.  How much restraint would America show if Mexico or Canada were lobbing hundreds of rockets across our border every day?  When ISIS began its murderous rampage across the Middle East our President called for a measured response.  Equivocating civilized behavior with that of brutal terrorists erroneously identifies barbarians as equals with the very ones they seek to kill.

The false narrative of moral equivalency put forth by our elected leaders has emboldened the ones wishing to do us harm and conveyed a sense of legitimacy to their cause.  The terrorists of the world see our leaders and our country as weak and unwilling to defend those who can’t defend themselves.  They look at a country that kills over a…

Perspective

As I look back on pieces I wrote nearly a year ago, not much has changed. ISIS is still spreading terror, I’m still stressed out at work, and thousands of unborn children are still being killed every day in America’s abortion mills. When we take the time to look at things in their proper perspective, most of the things we spend our time worrying about are simply not worth it. A bad day at work doesn’t seem that bad when you compare it to the day that over 3,000 innocent children had in an abortion clinic, as their lives were brought to an unceremonious and brutal end. When we view the events of our lives in perspective, if we’re lucky, we see our true purpose for being here at this time and at this place. If we then have the courage to act on our true purpose, we can move mountains. My mountain is the abortion industry, and my purpose is to chip away at it until it no longer exists; however long it takes.

The last few weeks have been a very stressful time for me at work, and based on my workload, I don’t see it getting any better any time soon.  At this stage of my life I’ve learned to look at the big picture and view things in perspective during times like this.  While I may not be having fun at work these days, it could be worse.  Every day that I think I’m overworked or over stressed more than 3,000 unborn children are murdered in their mothers’ wombs in America. It seems that in the big scheme of things my problems just aren’t that important.

My stressful job provides me the means to contribute to worthy charities and to spoil my grandsons.  I look at every day at work as 1 less day I have to wait before I can pursue my goal of working on a full time basis…

This time last year I was feeling confident.  Something was telling me that the end of the abortion industry was near, so I took a leap of faith and predicted that Planned Parenthood would be closing its doors in 2014.  While 2014 isn’t over yet, I may have gotten a little ahead of myself.   I still have the feeling that the end is near for the abortion industry, but I won’t put a timeline on it.

When I wrote this letter I asked Cecile Richards if Planned Parenthood gave its employees bonuses for exceeding their planned body count.  Little did I know at the time that they do.  In what kind of twisted world does an organization provide incentive bonuses to its employees for killing more innocent children?

As I wrote this letter the day after Christmas last year, I knew in my heart that I would spend the rest of my life, if necessary, to end the practice of abortion.  My determination has not wavered and I’m committed to changing minds and saving lives, however long it takes.

Ms. Richards:

I hope you and your employees at Planned Parenthood had a wonderful Christmas.  I also hope you and all your employees took the time this Holiday season to reflect on what you do for a living and the suffering and death that occurs every day in your clinics.  America’s abortion industry will kill over 1.2 million unborn children before we celebrate another Christmas.  Planned Parenthood will kill over 300,000 of them.  How you and your staff can look your children in the eyes before you go to work every day is beyond my level of understanding.

Ms. Richards, as a businessman I have to forecast how much work I intend to do and how much money I plan to make every year.  Have you prepared your forecast of how many children your organization plans to kill next year?  Does Planned Parenthood give its employees bonuses for exceeding your projected body count?  What metrics, other than body count and the amount of money you manage to fleece the American taxpayers out of, do you use to determine whether you have had a productive year?

Ms. Richards, I believe in going big or not going at all.  I also believe in the power of intention.  I intend to close the doors of Planned Parenthood forever in 2014.  Just in case you’re wondering how I will close you down; I haven’t a clue. I know it will be done without violence, within the law, and with the help of a higher power.  Who knows; maybe the right person will read one of my letters and set a chain of events into motion that none of us can even imagine.  Maybe next year the pro-life movement will reach the critical mass needed to invoke unprecedented changes in our society and a quantum level of understanding of the true value of every human life.  Maybe the 56 million children aborted in America since 1973 will collectively petition our Creator to soften the hearts of the pro-abortion crowd and return our country to a place where every new life is a welcomed addition.  Whatever it takes to end the killing, we need it now.

As I enter my 60th year in a few weeks, I’m paying more attention to what’s really important.  Money, success, and material possessions are all temporal, and of no intrinsic value in the big scheme of things.  How you conduct your life and the impact and impressions you make on the lives of others are what’s really important.  Human life is the most miraculous creation in a timeless and endless Universe and dedicating one’s life to preserving and protecting it is a worthy calling.

Ms. Richards, closing your doors is my life’s mission and I welcome the fight as a happy warrior.

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 #3 to NARAL: One Year later

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.

Attn:    Ilyse Hogue

 Ms. Hogue:

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.

Letter to Planned Parenthood #16 Republished

Pro Life Pop Pop

Last year, on September 11, I was reliving the emotions I had felt 12 years earlier.  I couldn’t believe it had been 12 years since Islamic terrorists attacked my country and killed 3,000 of my fellow citizens.  On the eve of 9/11/14 I have a lot to be thankful for; 2 wonderful grandsons and a clear vision of how I want to spend the rest of my life.  Tomorrow, as America mourns for those we lost on 9/11, Planned Parenthood and America’s abortion industry will be busy killing tiny humans in their mothers’ wombs.  I will not allow their actions to go unchallenged and I will not rest until our nation stops allowing our unborn children to be killed for a fee.

Remember how you felt on 9/11 and resolve that by 9/11 of next year you will have taken positive, measurable actions in service to your fellow man.  Do…
