 Ms. Richards:

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell came out last week and said he “got it wrong” with his recent disciplinary debacle over acts of domestic violence by his players.  I’ll give credit where credit is due.  He manned up, admitted he screwed up, and pledged to make it right moving forward.  We’ll see where it goes, but at least he is making an effort to do what we all know is right.  Ms. Richards, if only you and your colleagues in America’s abortion industry could do the same.

The civilized world knows in its heart that killing unborn children as a matter of convenience is wrong.  As the leader of the world’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, you are the public face of infanticide for hire.  One can reasonably assume that you are a marginally intelligent woman. You have to know that you are paid in blood money.  The industry that pays your salary and the industry that you aggressively promote will kill over a million unborn children this year.

The egregious behavior by many NFL stars has cast a spotlight, and rightly so, on the problem of domestic violence.  The lethal behavior that goes on daily in your clinics is hardly noticed.  Over 3,000 children die every day in America’s abortion mills.  If domestic violence caused over 3,000 deaths every day in America do you think it would be an even bigger news story?

Domestic violence is the flavor of the week for the news media.  In a short time they’ll move on to something else.  When will the daily killing of thousands of children get the same attention?  Our society gravitates towards the trendy topic of the moment while paying little or no attention to the true evil that your organization represents.  While Planned Parenthood is busy killing our children, many in our increasingly clueless nation occupy themselves with banal reality TV shows and keeping up with the Kardashians.  They don’t have time for the truly important things in life; things like watching an innocent child sleep or fighting to allow every unborn child to be born.

Ms. Richards, if you’re not working to solve the problem, you’re part of the problem.  Planned Parenthood is definitely part of the problem.  Not only will you kill over 300,000 children this year; you’ll lobby to be allowed to kill even more.  While most of my fellow Americans remain ambivalent towards the intentional killing of over a million innocent children this year, you’re organization will continue to kill them at a rate of 1 every 94 seconds.  Your industry, as a whole, will kill more than 2 unborn children every minute of every hour of every day.

I refuse to let the slaughter of my grandsons’ future friends and playmates continue unchallenged.  I will continue to fight, until I no longer can, to end the killing.  Your cooperation by immediately closing your doors would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Degrees of Outrage #3

As a non-participating member of the herd, I enjoy studying them as they bounce from crisis to crisis, each of them seeking validation by expressing more outrage over the most recent crisis du jour than their fellow herd members.  The most recent focus of their collective outrage is Ray Rice.  Domestic violence is a serious problem and Ray Rice got what he deserved.  I agree that outrage over acts of violence against anyone is the natural human response.  What I have a problem with are expressions of outrage with no intent by most of those expressing it to do anything to fix the problem that their outrage is directed towards.  How many of you reading this will do anything to prevent domestic violence, put the well-being of others ahead of yourself, or take a stand based on principle to protect those who can’t protect themselves?

Far too many of us are willing to jump on the bandwagon every time the news cycle jumps to the next big story, spouting our outrage and then moving on; the focus of our outrage quickly dispatched to the recesses of our short term memory.  As I’ve written before, I believe outrage is a waste of time and effort unless its energy is directed towards a remedy for the outrageous.  We all have a choice to make when we express our outrage over something.  We can remain members of the herd and compliment one another for caring enough to express our anger, then move on and do nothing productive, or break from the herd and take positive, measurable action.

About a year and a half ago I broke from the herd.  I made a conscious decision to spend the rest of my life, if necessary, to end abortion and to close the doors of those organizations in the business of killing unborn babies for money.   I quit caring about what the other members of the herd thought about me and made a commitment to a cause more important than myself.  I find it outrageous that the greatest country on earth allows over a million of our unborn children to be killed every year.  I find it outrageous that our elected officials, sworn to protect the rights of every American, look the other way as thousands of innocent children are killed every day by Planned Parenthood and our nation’s abortion industry.

I would be lying if I said I don’t sometimes feel anger or animus towards those who support abortion or actually perform them.  I’m more saddened than angry that it is legal to choose to have your unborn child killed in America.  I choose to channel these emotions towards the achievement of a worthy goal.  If my friends who choose to remain in the herd want to express outrage over something, I urge them to do so in memory of the thousands of unborn children killed today and the thousands doomed to die tomorrow.  I urge them to take definitive action to end the injustice that sparked their outrage and to commit themselves to serving others.
