Letter: Do not kill the innocent

Statistics show $554 million Planned Parenthood has received for the past few years from the federal government. This means 328,000 abortions per year at $1 billion for an annual budget. Over 60 million babies in the U.S. have been killed in their mothers’ wombs since Roe vs. Wade in the 1973 ruling by the Supreme Court, according to the American Center for Law & Justice.

In my opinion, Planned Parenthood should be held responsible and transparent in their statements. It’s a serious federal crime to adjust the time of an abortion — up to nine months.

The pro-abortion, anti-Christian left (including Democrat leaders in the House and Senate) are now calling the 2018 mid-term congressional election on Nov. 6 the impeachment election. If Democrats win back majority control of the House and Senate in 2018, they promise to begin impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump. Should the Democrats win, we will have no hope of ending or even reducing abortions in America. We could do better to help mothers.

Listed below are areas in which we wish to thank President Trump:

• For appointment and defending the appointment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

• President Trump has given states the option to deny Planned Parenthood access to Medicaid and other federal grant money because Planned Parenthood uses money for its abortion clinics.

• President Trump has ordered a halt to all U.S. taxpayer money going to international organizations that fund or perform abortions.

Look up 1 Kings 2:27. Read the issue of two mothers, each claiming the baby was hers. Pray our judges may have the wisdom of Solomon.

Matthew, Mark and Luke all report the same teaching of Jesus. “Whoever would harm one of these little ones, it would be better for him if he had a heavyweight fastened about his neck and be thrown into the sea.

Exodus 23:7, “Do not kill the innocent and righteous.”
