More of the Same

capitol3I had big hopes this year when the Republican controlled House and Senate were seated..  Both chambers had promised to move quickly on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and both have failed miserably.  If they ever get around to passing this bill it will be vetoed by President Obama.  His veto will spark a much needed debate and raise awareness of the brutality of our nation’s abortion industry.  I believe this debate will eventually result in the passage of this life-saving bill.

While our elected officials play politics and cook up backroom deals, children are dying by the thousands.  I was optimistic that this year it would be different.  Now I see that I was duped again into believing that some politicians would actually do what they said they would do if I would just vote for them.  Both the House and Senate have pro-life majorities.  They can save lives and pass legislation to make it harder to have your child killed in America, but they would have us believe that they have more important things to do.  On a national level, it is just as easy today to walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic and have your unborn child killed as it was before last November’s elections.  From my perspective, our country is being run by elected leaders who fail to see or choose to ignore the wishes of their constituents.  We can and must do better.

It makes no difference to the thousands of unborn children who will die in America’s abortion mills tomorrow, whether the person killing them is a Republican or Democrat; they will still die.  Unlike you and me, they can’t decide what course their life will follow.  They can’t protest their own killing, and are powerless to defend themselves.  Every unborn child must depend entirely upon the good will and kindness of others for their very survival.  As a society, we have failed the ones who need us the most.  We’ve made it legal to kill them for any reason, at any time, right up to the moment of their birth.  We even send evil empires, like Planned Parenthood, hundreds of millions of dollars every year so they can kill even more children.

We get the leaders we deserve, and the consequences of our actions against our unborn children have placed us in the position we are now in.  We could end the killing tomorrow, but we don’t have the will to accept the undeniable truth that every new life has the absolute right to simply live.  We take it upon ourselves to decide which child should live and which should die, all the while doing everything we can to preserve our own lives.  We look forward to all of our tomorrows, and deny thousands of children one more tomorrow every day.

Our elected leaders will not lead unless they are lead by us.  They will only take action if it leads to them keeping their jobs.  We have a moral obligation to do right by the weakest among us.  We must demand that our elected leaders do our bidding.  We must hold them to the highest standards and we must individually do the same.  Our children deserve no less.

Letter to President Obama #100

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

Washington, D.C.  20500

Attn:    President Barack Obama

 January 13, 2015

 Mr. President:

In June of 2013 the House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  Your gatekeeper in the Senate, Harry Reid, blocked a vote on this bill so you wouldn’t be forced to veto it.  He ran out the clock so you wouldn’t be placed in the position of having to explain to the American people why you don’t object to allowing pain-capable babies to be killed.

The House is poised to pass this bill again on or about January 22 and new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has promised to bring it to a vote in the Senate.  With any luck, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will be on your desk by the end of February.  What will your justification be for not signing this bill?  Do you know anything about the procedure that is employed to kill a late-term baby, or worse yet, do you not care?

Dilation and Evacuation, the procedure used to kill late-term babies, is brutally effective.  The unborn, pain-capable child is systematically ripped apart, limb by limb, until it dies and all its body parts can be removed from the mother’s body.  About 20,000 babies are killed in this manner every year in America.  They experience the agony of every rip and tear until they die.  They don’t have a voice and their screams can’t be heard.  They’re totally at the mercy of a supposedly civilized society.

Over a million unborn children are killed every year in America’s abortion mills, so the 20,000 or so that this bill addresses may not seem to be a big number; some may even consider it insignificant; nothing more than a rounding error.  Mr. President, every single one of these lives matters and every single one is priceless.  Your cronies at Planned Parenthood don’t agree.  They place a value on the head of every child they kill; that being the fee they get for killing it.

Mr. President, signing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a no-brainer.  There is no logical reason to veto a bill designed solely to protect innocent children.  I ask that you place politics aside, and look inside your heart when this bill reaches your desk.  Imagine the pain and suffering that will come to an end with a simple stroke of your pen.  Sir, you are on the record as saying that you have a phone and a pen and that you intend to use them.  I implore you to use your pen in the name of every innocent child that is simply striving to exercise its God-given right to life.

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 to Mitch McConnell #2

Senator Mitch McConnell

317 Russell Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C.  20510

 January 6, 2015

  Senator McConnell:

Last November I asked you to bring the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act up for a vote as soon as you assumed the role of Majority Leader in the Senate.  Your predecessor blocked this bill for over a year and a half so President Obama wouldn’t have to veto a bill designed to save pain-capable babies from indescribably painful deaths.  He chose politics over the lives of innocent children.  What will you do?

Senator, there is no downside to standing up for life.  There will be no political price to pay for banning abortions of unborn children who can feel the pain of being killed.  The new Senate has plenty of work to do, but nothing more important than passing this bill.  Stand up for life and make President Obama explain to the American people why he approves of killing pain-capable babies by the thousands.

America has a lot of problems right now, and most of them can be traced back to how we treat the most vulnerable among us.  Sir, our unborn children don’t have a voice and don’t have a vote.  What they do have is the gift of life; the very same gift of life that you and I were granted by our Creator.  We are honor bound to protect each other and morally bound to protect our unborn children.  The American people soundly rejected the policies of the most abortion-friendly President in history last November.  They sent a message to you and every other elected official that business as usual will no longer be tolerated.

Senator, you have the votes in the Senate to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  Your colleagues in the House passed it in June of 2013.  All it will take from you is the courage to allow an up or down vote in the Senate. There is no logical reason for delaying a vote on this bill.  There is no logical reason for President Obama to veto it.  There is no logical reason to not pass this bill even if the President does veto it.

You and your colleagues serve at the pleasure of your constituents.  Most Americans oppose abortion and an overwhelming majority opposes abortion beyond 20 weeks.   Common sense would seem to dictate that you and every other elected official serve the best interests of the ones that put you in office.  Common sense would seem to dictate that if you see innocent children being killed and have the power to stop it, you do just that.

Senator, bottom line; every day this bill is not acted upon, innocent children die horrible, senseless deaths.  Pass the bill, override the President’s veto, and stand up for America’s unborn children.

Optimism

As I rapidly approach my 61st year, I’m optimistic.  I can sense the abortion debate slowly swinging to the pro-life side. The House and Senate both have pro-life majorities and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has a real chance now to get to the President’s desk.  And I can see Rand Paul’s Life at Conception Act being the death blow to Roe v Wade as soon as we have a President with the courage to serve his or her country instead of his or her party.   President Obama will veto the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and I’m optimistic that someone in the press will ask him to explain why he thinks pain-capable babies should be killed by dismemberment.  I’m anxious to see how his spin machine tries to justify his veto as anything other than his willingness to sacrifice thousands of innocent children in order to placate his friends in the abortion industry.

Absent the fancy marketing and political correctness, the killing of America’s children by Planned Parenthood and its partners in the abortion business would be seen for what it is; crimes against humanity.  Americans have been conditioned to accept what they are told as the truth, without questioning the motives of the ones selling them a bill of goods.  Bottom-feeders, like Planned Parenthood, know they can package the brutal killing of unborn children as “reproductive health care” and that most people won’t ask what these words really mean.  Most of my fellow Americans agree that the taking of an innocent life is wrong, but choose to remain at arm’s length from the abortion debate; not willing to take a public stand for every child’s Right to life.

Standing on principle and fighting to defeat evil was never meant to be easy; but it’s the right thing to do.  If my work on behalf of the pro-life movement makes anyone feel uncomfortable; tough.  I’m not in this to make friends.  I’m in this to save lives.  While I have no metrics to measure whether I’ve changed any minds or saved any lives, I’m optimistic that if I stay the course, miracles are possible.  When you accept the call to save lives you start examining the course of your own life.  You realize that most of the things you once considered important are anything but so.  You accept on faith that sacrificing everything for what you believe in is a noble pursuit, and worth the sacrifice.

Feeling optimistic but waiting for someone else to take the actions that feed your optimism is a sure recipe for having your dreams dashed.  My dream of a world where every child is allowed to to be born will only be realized through my efforts and those of millions of other like-minding people, most of whom are much better equipped for the task than I.  James 2:14 says “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works?  Can faith save him?”  In my humble translation of this verse, if you want something to happen, get off your butt and go do something to make it happen.  I invite any and all who agree with my mission to do just that.

 

 

Letter to Harry Reid #5

Senator Harry Reid

522 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C.  20510

 November 5, 2014

  Senator Reid:

Over the course of the past year I’ve written to you several times, urging you to allow the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to be voted upon in the Senate.  My letters, predictably, have gone unanswered and you have ignored pleas from your colleagues to allow a vote on this life-saving piece of legislation. Your motives have been clear; protect the President at all costs from having to veto a bill designed to save the lives of innocent children.

Senator, as a result of yesterday’s mandate against the policies you support, you’ll be out of a job in less than 2 months.  Why not leave on a high note by standing up for America’s unborn children?  Sir, as I’m sure you know, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would ban abortions of children 20 weeks old or older since they can feel the pain of being systematically dismembered as they are being killed.  About 20,000 children are killed in this manner every year in America.  While 20,000 is a relatively small percentage of the more than 1 million unborn children killed every year by America’s abortion industry, every single child is priceless.

Senator Reid, the Senate, under your leadership, has been dubbed the place where bills go to die.  It should not be the place where the lives of innocent children are used as political pawns.  The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will surely be brought up for a vote by your successor.  It will most assuredly be vetoed by the President and the men and women of both Chambers of Congress will be forced to look inward and to take a public stand for or against life in the override effort.  Delaying this exercise will only insure that more innocent children will die a needless, agonizing death.

Sir, what is the downside of taking action to save innocent lives?  Why should the greatest country on earth allow its unborn children to be killed by the millions?  Senator, the House passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in June of 2013.  During the interim, while you stonewalled every attempt to bring it up for a vote in the Senate, thousands of innocent children have been slaughtered.

Senator, if I have to beg, I will.  Sir, I beg you to allow the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to be brought up for a vote.  Your legacy as the Senate Majority Leader is in your hands.  You can be remembered as a man who got nothing done or the Leader who finally stood up for America’s children.

July 15, 2014

On the evening of July 17 last year I punched in for another night of writing letters in pursuit of my goal of ending abortion.  At the time, Harry Reid was signaling that he was considering allowing a vote on The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  Since then he has changed his mind.  I was still on track last July to write one letter a day to the President on behalf of the pro-life movement.  Not long after this letter, I decided to branch out and write to all the key players in the ongoing slaughter of the world’s children.

Most of the ideas for my letters come from my perspective as a father and grandfather.  I think about the emptiness in my life had my children and grandchildren never been born, and the words come pouring out.  I was frustrated with the President when I wrote the following letter.  For a man who has shown nothing but contempt for the Constitution, he chooses to hide behind it with his flailing attempts to justify his opposition to a bill designed to save the lives of innocent children.

Since I wrote this letter, States have passed dozens of bills restricting abortion.  We are winning the battles and my hope is that the war will be won in the near future.

 July 17, 2013

Mr. President:

The letters I am writing to you and members of the abortion industry are inspired by the love I feel for my 2 year old grandson.  As parents and grandparents we are entrusted with the sacred duty to care for and protect our children and grandchildren.  Sir, this duty applies to our unborn children and grandchildren too.

Last night my daughter purchased a flotation device and water wings for my grandson in preparation for a pool party he is attending this weekend.  She didn’t do this while thinking about a sacred trust or moral obligation of any sort. She did it out of love for her child and her desire to make sure he is safe.  Mr. President, the natural instinct to love and protect our children is in all of us.  Unfortunately, you, the pro-abortion crowd, and abortion mills such as Planned Parenthood have suppressed this instinct in favor of political expediency and money.

Mr. President, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, of all people, has signaled that he may be receptive to allowing a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  Getting this bill through a left-leaning, pro-abortion Senate will be a very heavy lift unless you weigh in on the side of life.  You recently said you would veto this bill if it passed because “it shows contempt for women’s’ health and rights, the role doctors play in their patients’ health care decisions, and the Constitution.”  Sir, with all due respect, this has to be one the most asinine and incomprehensible statements you have ever made; and trust me, the list to choose from is quite long.

Where to begin?  How does a bill designed to protect fully developed babies from a horrific death and women from unsafe medical procedures show contempt for women’s health and rights?  How does the requirement that doctors performing abortions have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the abortion clinic show contempt for women’s health?  How does protecting the lives of unborn babies and their mothers show contempt for the Constitution?

Since I’m batting a thousand on not getting replies to my letters I won’t hold my breath waiting for your reply to this one.  Hopefully, your interns or some low level staffer charged with reading your mail will see something in one of my letters that moves them to the pro-life side of the aisle.

In the words of Dante, “There’s a special place in hell for those who in times of moral crisis choose to do nothing.”  Mr. President, when comes to protecting our Nation’s unborn children, you have chosen to do nothing.

I’ve been writing a lot lately about the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  In a perfect world I wouldn’t have to write about something like this.  In a perfect world it wouldn’t be legal to have your unborn child killed.  We wouldn’t allow an unborn children to be killed at any point in their young lives, whether they could feel it or not.  On Father’s Day I would be remiss if I didn’t remind all fathers that our most important duty in life is to protect our children.

On June 19 of last year I felt compelled to remind the President of the magnitude of the killing that goes on in our country’s abortion mills every year.  The numbers are staggering, and so is the President’s refusal to lift a finger to stop the slaughter.

Mr. President:

What’s in a number?  The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act protects unborn children 20 weeks old and older from the horror of abortion.  Ask yourself these questions: When did the countdown to 20 weeks start?  Was it at the moment of conception?  Does the determination that an unborn child is 20 weeks old confirm that it is a living human being that has been alive for 20 weeks?  If a child has been alive for 20 weeks, what possible legal or moral justification could there be for killing it at any point in its life, starting at the moment of conception?

One more question Mr. President:  Why is it only wrong to kill a child if it is capable of feeling the pain of being killed?   I’ll help you out since I’m pretty sure you don’t have access to your teleprompter on the rare occasion that you actually read a letter from an American citizen.  A child is a living human being from the moment of conception and is endowed by our Creator with the same right to life as you and I.  Engaging in the intentional killing of a child at any point in its life at any time after conception is not only a violation of the law of man, but of God’s law as well.  Short answer so even you can understand: Killing kids is wrong! Don’t do it!

Now that we have that out of the way, allow me to describe a brutally effective abortion technique your friends at Planned Parenthood are quite fond of.  It’s called saline amniocentesis and got its inspiration from none other than the Nazi concentration camps.

A syringe is inserted into the amniotic sac and up to 8 ounces of amniotic fluid is withdrawn.  The abortionist then injects a concentrated salt solution into the amniotic sac.  The salt solution burns the child’s skin and sears its lungs, inflicting indescribable pain that usually kills the child within an hour.  One to two days later the mother delivers the dead, shriveled body of her baby.  We’ve all had the experience of salt on a cut or scrape and know how it feels.  Imagine that pain over your entire body, including your lungs, until you die.  That’s how the greatest country on earth treats its unborn.

What’s in a number?  334,000 stories of pain and suffering, all ending in the death of a human being, all performed in the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood just last year.

Mr. President, one last question:  How many innocent children will you allow to be killed this year?

April 12, 2014

Last summer, after the House had passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, I began writing to various Senators, most of them with long histories of supporting the unrestricted killing of our unborn children, urging them to get behind this bill in the Senate.  Two of those letters are included below.  Since Harry Reid carries the water for Barack Obama, the most pro-abortion President in our history, there is virtually no hope of him allowing this bill to be voted upon in the Senate while he is the Majority Leader.  While our children are being slaughtered daily by the thousands, I refuse to give up hope, and will keep trying to make our political weasels on the pro-abortion side of the aisle as uncomfortable as possible with their conscious choice to look the other way and pretend that their inaction is not enabling infanticide in my country.

The following letters were written to Barbara Mikulski, one of my state’s most embarrassing contributions to the Senate, and Barbara Boxer, California’s pride and joy.

 

 

Senator Barbara Mikulski

212 W. Main Street, Suite 200

Salisbury, Md. 21801

July 18, 2013

 

Senator Mikulski:

Majority Leader Reid has signaled that he may be receptive to allowing a Senate vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  As a pro-life advocate I support this legislation.  Although I support the Right to life for all unborn children, I know that this fight will not be easy and will not be won quickly or without setbacks.

Senator, like many Americans, I’m a parent and grandparent.  I treasure my children and grandchildren.  My 2 year old grandson is the joy of my life and we are anxiously awaiting the birth of his little brother in September.  I believe that my unborn grandson is just as much alive and human as you, me, and the rest of our family members.  I also believe that it is unconscionable that my daughter could walk into any abortion clinic in Maryland tomorrow and have my unborn, yet alive, grandson killed as a simple matter of convenience.

Senator, the preferred method of abortion for children 20 weeks old and older is dilation and evacuation.  This procedure is performed by literally ripping the unborn, pain-capable child apart, limb by limb. I can’t imagine the indescribable agony and suffering these children endure as they are killed in this manner.  I also can’t imagine a civilized society allowing this procedure to be performed one more time.

Senator, I can think of no higher calling in life than the honor of protecting the most vulnerable among us; our unborn and newly born children.  I don’t know where you stand on abortion and I really don’t care.  What I care about is saving lives and insuring that every unborn child has the opportunity to experience the same Right to life that you and I were granted.

Senator Mikulski, an incontrovertible fact is that 100% of the politicians opposed to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act were allowed to be born.  Wherever you stand on abortion, allowing pain-capable children to be slaughtered at the hands of an abortionist cannot be justified.

I therefore respectfully request that you speak out in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and vote for its passage in the Senate.  Our children and grandchildren deserve no less.

 

 

Senator Barbara Boxer

Senator Boxer:

Even though we live on different sides of the country we’re united as Americans.  As a pro-life American I dream of a day when all our unborn children are allowed to exercise the same Right to life that you and I treasure.  By now I’m sure you’ve figured out that we are on opposite sides of the debate when it comes to abortion.  In spite of our differences, I’m sure we can agree as parents and grandparents that saving our pain-capable unborn children from the indescribable agony of abortion is the right thing to do.

Senator, the House has done its part and passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act; now it’s your turn.  No reasonable person can justify the torturous killing of a living, but unborn 5 month old child.  You have spoken out in the past against waterboarding and subjecting murderous terrorists to physical and mental discomfort.  Please speak out now against killing innocent children.

Majority Leader Reid has indicated that he may allow a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  The least you can do is consider this bill with an open mind and an open heart.  Think of your own children and imagine the void in your life if they had never been given the chance to be born.

Senator Boxer, at 20 weeks old and older, unborn children are killed with a procedure known as dilation and evacuation. This procedure is performed by literally ripping the living, pain-capable child apart, limb by limb.  No child should ever have to die in this manner; and as a politician who has spoken out against torture, I can’t imagine how you could justify your opposition to a bill designed to protect them.  You and your fellow Senators have a chance to make history with this bill and the opportunity to save untold thousands of innocent children.

I plan to spend the rest of my life fighting for the lives of our unborn children.  No child should fall asleep tonight nestled safely in its mother’s womb, only to suffer a ghastly death tomorrow at the hands of an abortionist.  Please join me in protecting these children.

Senator Boxer, I respectfully request that you speak out in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and vote for its passage in the Senate.  America’s children deserve no less.

 

 

 

 

Letter to Harry Reid #4

November 14, 2013

Senator Reid:

I know you have a lot on your plate right now, what with the unmitigated disaster of ObamaCare, the reality that it will probably cost you the Senate next year, and the mass defections of your panicked Democrat Senators.  Even though you have a lot going on right now, nothing is more important than bringing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to the floor for a vote; nothing except insuring that it passes, and then over-riding President Obama’s veto.

Senator Reid, as I’ve stated in my previous letters, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will save at least 15,000 unborn children from a torturously painful death every year.  Sir, a few simple votes is all it will take, and thousands of unborn children get to live.  You can debate the bill before you vote, but what logical argument could you possibly have for allowing the slaughter of thousands of babies who can feel the pain of being killed?

The 2014 and 2016 elections aren’t looking good for your party the way things stand today.  You’ve been caught selling the American people a bill of goods with ObamaCare and you can’t blame this one on the Republicans.  They didn’t cast a single vote for ObamaCare and they passed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act through the House, so now it’s your turn.  Sir, while you are deciding whether or not to allow a vote on this bill, remember that every 26 seconds another baby is aborted in America.  Every day you delay a vote on this bill, dozens of late-term babies will be ripped apart while they are being killed in America’s abortion mills.

Senator, if you and your fellow Democrats continue to carry the President’s water on the issue of abortion, you risk the fate of drowning under the weight of his utter incompetence.  Sir, you know it’s wrong to kill an innocent human being.  You know that the Right to life applies to unborn, living human beings.  And you know that every unborn child deserves to be born, just like you and I.

Senator Reid, at the risk of repeating myself, no logical argument can be made to allow pain-capable children to be killed under cover of the law.  The greatest country on earth should not be killing over a million of its unborn children every year; and allowing pain-capable babies to be ripped from their mothers’ wombs is an abomination.  Senator Reid, imagine the next baby in line to be killed at your local Planned Parenthood clinic is your grandchild.  What would you do?  The fate of thousands of unborn American children lies in your hands.  What will you do?

Letter to Harry Reid #4

Senator Harry Reid

522 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, D.C.  20510

November 9, 2013

Senator Reid:

As you know by now, Senator Lindsey Graham introduced the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act for consideration in the Senate on Thursday.  I have already asked you several times to bring this bill to the floor and ask again that you work towards its passage.  Senator, what do we gain as a nation if we allow our unborn children to be slaughtered by the millions?  What possible justification could you or any of your colleagues have for not supporting a bill that will save the lives of at least 15,000 unborn American children every year?

Senator Reid, at 20 weeks gestation a baby can feel pain.  At 20 weeks gestation a baby is a living human being that has been alive for 20 weeks.  At 20 weeks old a baby can feel the abortionist rip it apart while killing it.  No human being should be subjected to this indignity or brutality.  No innocent child deserves to die in such a barbaric manner. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will prevent this from ever happening to another innocent child.  So, once again, why would anyone want to vote against this bill?

Favorability ratings for both Houses of Congress currently place you below head lice, cockroaches, and colonoscopies.  Since the only people you can piss off any worse than you already have are the pro-abortion lobby, why not stand up and do the right thing for a change?  Senator Reid, with your endorsement this bill can pass the Senate, then President Obama can explain to the American people why he feels he should veto a bill whose sole purpose is to save the lives of innocent children.

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a small step towards ending abortion in America, but a very important step.  America’s abortion mills will kill over 1.2 million children this year.   The 15,000 children this bill will save may not sound like a big number to you until you put it in perspective.  If 15,000 children were murdered in their schools this year would you take steps to end the killing?

Senator Reid, it’s easy in life to go along to get along.  Taking a principled stand for a cause worth losing everything for is a little harder.  The lives of America’s children are worth fighting for and worth risking everything for; even if that means you don’t get reelected.  Senator, if you kill this bill you are enabling the killing of thousands of children.  I beg you to put politics aside and do what you know in your heart is right.  Pass the bill, override the President’s veto, and save our children.
