To the editor:
First of all, we thank you for your service to our country. We are pleased to assist you in honoring those who have served and died for our country. Enclosed is our check.
On Jan. 22, 1973, without public debate and without the people’s elected representatives weighing in, seven members of the U.S. Supreme Court decided, by judicial decree, that abortion on demand would be the law of the land. This decree instantly nullified existing state law restricting abortion.
In the 41 years that have followed that decree, 55 million children, a larger number than the entire population of Canada, have been executed in these United States.
Now, you may be asking yourself why I am providing the above. Here goes!
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the country. The government found (and what it couldn’t find, it borrowed) $500 million taxpayer dollars for them last year. And you tell me that it can’t find 88 cents for a veteran. Frankly, I personally can’t decide whether to be disgusted or just sad.
