Dear Mr. President,
Thank you for taking the lead as you have on gun control so that tragedies like Newtown may never happen again. I, for one, wish that you had addressed this issue much earlier on and who knows? If you had only taken a strong stand before the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, back when it wasn't politically expedient, perhaps it might never have taken place.
As much as I might admire your leadership on the issue of guns, however late it is, I must confess to being appalled at your apparent blindness toward the other children who have been massacred in this country. They are the nameless, faceless souls whose tiny bodies are decimated in the name of perhaps the most evil deception ever foisted on the human race: choice.
What kind of choice is it when it ends in death?
It is most disturbing to hear the leader of the free world call the "right" to destroy our children in-utero "reproductive health". Manipulating a healthy reproductive system for convenience and profit is not healthy at all. It is a sickness beyond words. And yet it has been sold to women the world over as a "solution" to an unwanted pregnancy. Where else have we heard that word, "solution"? I shudder to even think about it.
To borrow a phrase from the lovely ladies at Feminists for Life, abortion is an indication that we, as a society, have failed women. When the best we can offer a woman struggling with a pregnancy she believes she cannot handle is that we will "rid her of the problem", we haven't only failed her but we have failed the entire human race. When we have reduced the miracle of life to an infestation that must be exterminated like a nest of cockroaches, we have failed and have failed miserably. And the Father of Lies, that fallen angel cast out of Heaven, delights every time he hears someone repeat the lie that abortion is healthcare, and that stopping a human heart from beating is a choice to which women should be entitled.
As it has been pointed out elsewhere, there is something very unsettling about a man who has uttered not a word about the atrocities uncovered in Kermit Gosnell's chamber of horrors yet who can find the time to embrace an organization founded by the eugenicist, Margaret Sanger. As learned as you are, I hope you have taken the time to familiarize yourself with Ms. Sanger and exactly what it is she wished accomplish through birth control and abortion. Take a look at some of her quotes and then try to explain why Planned Parenthood deserves a single dime of taxpayer money.
To call what Ms. Sanger's creation does healthcare is like calling what Josef Mengele did legitimate medical research. And yet highly intelligent, educated people like you and even myself at one point in time actually swallow the poison Planned Parenthood and its proponents try to foist on us as nectar. It should make chills run up your spine.
We grieve for the children who were lost on December 14. We will not forget their names or their faces. But shame on us if we think there is any difference between those adorable little angels and the forgotten children whose bodies are not bid farewell in small white flower-laced caskets but which are dumped, unceremoniously, in medical waste containers or worse, jars in Kermit Gosnell's freezer.
A society is best defined by the way it regards the most vulnerable. If our children are not even safe from violence in their own mother's womb, why are you shocked that they are not safe in a classroom or playground?
You, too have a choice Mr. President. It's about time you made the right one, for all of our children.
