Unborn need America’s protection

This letter is in response to Skye Opel’s letter “End vitriol; let go of your political rage.” In her letter she assumes that anyone who does not agree with the re-election of President Obama does nothing but listen to talk radio all day and night. What really got me was when she said “Say a prayer for the unborn and then do something nice for someone who is already alive and in the world.” She then goes on to even tell us “Read a book, the Bible would be good and suggested to start with the Sermon on the Mount.”

I want to say this to her, first of all who has time to sit around and listen to talk radio all day and night. Just because someone speaks out against abortion does not justify it as political rage. People have been speaking out against abortion for years. President Obama voted against the Born Alive Protection Act four times, voting against protecting babies who survived abortion in favor of leaving them to die. On his third day in office he repealed the “Pro Life Mexico Policy” which in turn made groups that perform and promote abortion eligible for U.S. foreign aid funds. Under his administration Planned Parenthood’s funds jumped from 38 percent to almost 50 percent. Over $487 million of taxpayer funding goes to this despicable place. We all know that Planned Parenthood gets their funding for performing abortions not by performing mammograms or any kind of preventable screening for women. The list goes on and on. These innocent unborn babies need more than just prayers.We need to fight for them and use every resource we have to save them. All the people I know who fight for the unborn already do nice things for people who are already alive in the world. It is the unborn that need our voices to be heard.

I suggest that Skye should not just read Sermon on the Mount but should also read Luke 1:44, Psalms 5l:5, Jerimiah l:5, and Matthew 1:20 and then she will know that it is wrong to kill the unborn innocent babies and understand that life begins at conception.

I don’t care what registered party one is, what I can’t understand is how anyone could be in favor of killing innocent babies. God Bless America! Liberty and justice for all born and unborn!
