“Are right and wrong convertible terms, dependent upon popular opinion?” – William Lloyd Garrison
Dear President, supporter of all forms of abortion, up to and including partial-birth abortion. Why do you support the act of abortion? Why did you vote multiple times to deny life-saving care to infants born alive following failed abortions? Forgive me if I don’t buy the spin regarding the bill being potentially damaging to women’s reproductive rights, because the final version was identical to the federal “Born Alive Infant Protection Act,” which passed the Senate unanimously. When Barbara Boxer is more conservative than you, you may be an extremist.
Forget Obamacare, forget ever increasing taxes, forget immigration, and forget every other issue. For a moment, let’s assume abortion is the most important issue. As mother Teresa said:
“We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, of killings, of wars, of hatred. If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other?”
Do you believe that abortion is acceptable? If so, why? Because while I can believe that evil or ignorant people support abortion, I cannot believe that they would then turn around and care about keeping them “safe, legal, and rare.” Why keep abortion rare if it is not morally wrong? Why desire fewer abortions if it is of no moral consequence?
The desire to keep abortions “rare” implies that there is some kind of moral consequence to the practice. What else do we like to keep rare? War. We try to avoid war, unless it is absolutely necessary. We tread with caution because war often forces us to make morally ambiguous decisions, the negative consequences of which can be monumental. We have a reason to keep it rare. But what reason is there to keep abortion rare? If an infant in the womb is not yet human or if it doesn’t have a right to “hijack” it’s mother’s body to survive—as many pro-abortion advocates argue—why are we proceeding with caution? Why are people so concerned about the news from England and Oregon that aborted babies are being burned in order to supply heat? If they are not human we should be indifferent. It’s like burning wood.
We don’t have Democrats out there saying that we should keep mole removal safe, legal, and rare. So, Mr. President, you do indeed know—if only deep inside—that abortion is atrocious and immoral. That is the only conclusion to which I can come. Given that, why would you continue to support it? To get votes? To convince women that you are out to protect them and that Republicans hate them? The only answer to the question is “yes.” The Democrats, including you, our leader, value votes over the sanctity of human life. You would rather have an infant crushed, and mutilated, than lose an election.
Mr. President, you know the barbarity of abortion, yet continue to support it for your own gain. In that way, abortion is the most important issue of our time. It defines the character of our leaders. If you value votes over human life, your soul is not only rotten, but you are wildly dangerous.
