Mr. Sharpton:

Like most Americans, I’m sick of seeing the likes of you and Jesse Jackson jockeying for position in front of the cameras any time you see an opportunity to promote racial tension.  The events in Ferguson, Missouri over the past week were a tragedy by any measure.  A young man is dead and a police officer’s career and life are in jeopardy.  The last thing Ferguson needs is a race huckster like you in town stirring things up.

Mr. Sharpton, you claim to be concerned about injustice.  Young black men are killing young black men in Chicago every day and you are nowhere to be found.  It doesn’t make headlines, so you don’t show up.  Thousands of unborn black children are killed in the womb every week and not a word from you.  More black children are aborted in New York City every year than are born and you say nothing.  The fact of the matter is that the only one you care about is you.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. didn’t die so clowns like you could run around, shaking down businesses and stirring up trouble.

In today’s America it’s considered politically incorrect to call out a black man as a fraud and huckster, especially if you’re white.  You’re called a racist if you dare criticize a publicity hungry opportunist like you.  Label me what you want; I really don’t care.  I care about the world’s children, both born and unborn, regardless of their race.  Maybe it’s time you actually did something productive instead of running your mouth and acting like you actually give a damn.

Like Joe Biden, you have years of experience, are never at a loss for words, and have never been right about anything in your so-called field of expertise.  Mr. Sharpton, if you are truly concerned about the fate of black children in America join me in my fight to allow them to be born.  Since 1973 over 14 million black children have been aborted in America.  Every one of these children deserved the same accommodation you and I were given; the opportunity to be born.

By any objective observation, your track record as a champion for human rights and justice is abysmal.  The good news is it’s never too late to turn things around.  If you care about children, prove it.  Use your public platform to fight for every child’s right to be born, and then use it to insure that they are safe and healthy.  Sir, in the end the only thing that matters is results.  It’s your move.  Will you continue to be an embarrassment to your country and your race or will you finally work for the betterment of mankind?

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.






I believe with all my heart that hope, without action, will always leave you with nothing but a handful of nothing.  I hope and pray to live to see a world without abortion.  I also know that I can’t just sit by and hope that someone else stands up for the world’s unborn children.  I  write my letters and posts to raise awareness and, quite frankly, to point a finger at those in the business of killing babies for money and those who enable and support them.  I don’t live my life hoping that those who feel that a woman has the right to have her baby killed will magically change their minds and like me.  I really don’t care if they like me.  My one and only goal with my work is to save children.

At my age I can look back and see how much my country and the world has changed in the span of my 60 years.  I’ve learned the hard way that if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.  I’ve watched heroes like Martin Luther King, Jr. give everything for a worthy cause and gained inspiration from their sacrifices.  I’ve seen how one person can change the world and I know in my heart each of us can do the same.  I know that setting a goal, visualizing its achievement, and working every day towards its fruition will lead to your goal.

My hope is that abortion will be a thing of the past in the very near future.  My vision is a world where every unborn child is recognized for what it is; a living human being.  Working to save children is a worthy cause and I know that I will receive help from people I don’t even know.  I know that whatever I have to sacrifice to reach my goal will be worth it.  I know that the One who watches all will be watching over me.  His work must truly be ours and He will guide us toward good.

As goes America, so goes the world.  That’s why I want to end abortion in America first.  I’m annoying China and other international child killers while I fight for America’s unborn children, but I want to clean up my own backyard first.  The thousands of children America’s abortion industry kills every day deserve their chance to make the most of the gift of life they have been given.  By necessity, they have to rely on others to protect them and to fight against those who wish to harm them.   As a country, if we refuse to protect our children, the consequences of our inaction will be severe and deserved.  As individuals, if we fail to take action to protect the unborn, the consequences will be severe and deserved.  Our unborn children don’t know what hope is, but they have none if those of us who can, fail to take action.
