To The Editor:
I am writing this letter to publicly thank Pastor Cliff Boice, for his courage and determination in publicly speaking out against abortion.
There are many clergy in St. Lawrence County, not to mention Massena, who have all had the opportunity to speak out against this abominable act against innocent babies, but have yet to do so.
I dont think our Lord would have sat back and worried whether we would keep our tax-exempt status.
We have all been told to act out our faith, and Im sure God meant the clergy as well.
Three days ago I watched an hour-long special on Fox News about the life of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, at least the last 50 years of his life, because it has been 50 years since he started his abortion clinic.
This man, like Governor Cuomo and President Obama, condones late-term abortions, third-trimester abortions to be exact, and guess who is paying for these mass killings, the American taxpayer.
As I watched the Fox News special, I couldnt stop crying. Babies who had been born alive had their spines cut or their throats slit.
He killed thousands in the womb and these little souls were butchered. These little innocents suffered and felt pain as you and I do.
Their remains were thrown in trash bins or kept in plastic bags in a refrigerator. He stuffed body parts just about anywhere.
In fact, when his clinic was raided by the authorities they couldnt believe what they saw.
Gosnell didnt care about the women either. His sole purpose was to make money, and he made millions.
Many of the women who suffered under his care testified against him as did many of his staff who, though not qualified, committed some outrageous acts.
Gosnell is the essence of evil. He is no better than Hitler or Stalin.
Many of you may not have heard of Margaret Sanger. She was the founder of Planned Parenthood.
She too was evil, but got away with it because women thought she was there to help them. The truth is Margaret Sanger wanted to exterminate the Negro population and the handicapped, who she called morons.
Margaret Sanger said, We are failing to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying, a dead weight of human waste... an ever increasing spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.
She advocated the most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.
She hoped to attain some of her goals by using ministers.
I dont know about you, but I am very disturbed about the way this country is going and the last four and a half years, to me, have been the worst.
Americans are slowly seeing their freedoms encroached upon. The media is to blame for a lot of what has been happening in our country.
Dr. Kermit Gosnells trial and his abortion clinic, slaughterhouse seems a more appropriate name, was kept out of the major news media.
Only Fox News had the courage to let Americans know. There was a time when the press cared enough about its country to keep it safe. They were the defenders of our freedom, but not anymore.
I will feel better about my country when people like Gosnell can never hurt another mother or her child again.
I will feel better when all of those in power are made accountable for their power grabs and greed.
I will feel better when the truth is known about Benghazi, where our Ambassador and four other Americans were slain, and their cry for help was ignored.
I will feel better when the federal government is held accountable for Fast and Furious, the giving of guns to the Drug Cartels and at the same time trying to deny Americans their Second Amendment rights.
I will feel better knowing why the Boston Terrorists, received thousands of dollars in welfare checks, some of whom were driving BMWs and had thousands of dollars on them, and their college paid for.
I will feel better when the Fort Hood massacre is not called work place violence. It was a terrorist attack, period. We are slowly losing the freedoms our forefathers fought for. It doesnt matter whether you are Democrat or Republican, Conservative or independent.
What matters most is that you care about truth, dignity, moral values and self respect.
We need to eradicate abortion. It is a blight on our country and says a lot about who we are. We need to stand up and make known that we care about all life, especially for those who have no voice.
We need to stand up for our freedoms that we have been blessed with, and for our Christian faith which is also under attack.
