Letter to the Editor

A shortened version of this letter appeard in the Rapid City Journal on Friday, October 24th. 

To the Editor,

Hunting season is popular in our country. Have you ever thought why we hunt in the fall or winter? We hunt then because we would not want to kill animals when they are carrying their young or nesting with their youth!  It seems we have more respect for the unborn of animals and their young than we do for the unborn of human beings.  Where have our thoughts gone when we say it is okay to kill the unborn through abortion?  Have you looked at your baby pictures lately?  Just about nine months before, you were created.  It is very clear that people who are for abortion have already been born.  Everybody has to die, we all know that.  I am so glad someone fed me and changed my diaper when I was a baby.  My mother and father gave a place to grow; I could not have survived without their help.  Have you ever heard the story “Horton Hears a Who” by Dr. Seuss?  The point of that story is that a person is a person no matter how small they are.  If the unbron is not a human being, what is it?  In no time the fetus becomes a child.  if we were fair to the unborn, we would let them be born.  We would let them grow until they could talk and then ask if they wanted to live or die.  Fortunately, we can only kill the body of the unborn child.  God has their souls in His hands – and maybe we will have to meet those unbron children killed by abortion one day!  May God have mercy on us and on the whole world.  If the unborn child could say a prayer before their skull was crushed, and their brain sucked out; their body torn limb from linb, it might be, “Deliver us Lord from every evil and grant us peace.”

Email Encouragement!

Below are merely a few excerpts from emails the VoteYesForLife.com office has recieved.  Thanks to everyone who wrote in and offered encouragment!

I just read about your endeavor, and the bill getting a vote.  I wanted to tell you how excited it makes me.  Watching these campaigns and the economy and international relations, I’ve felt slightly depressed and lacking of hope lately.  When I read the news article, I couldn’t help but feel a little joy.  Since I have no financial opportunity nor volunteer capacity available to help the cause, know that I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts for the coming months.  Good luck, and thank you for filling a young student with a little more hope for the future.   –Jack 

Wow! I am so impressed!  I just stumbled upon your website because CNN actually mentioned the vote…Thank YOU!! You guys are the real mavericks…you could start the revolution across the United States that will finally end this deplorable pracitce.  May God bless your endeavors.  –Tammy

I know that you may have heard many stories about women choosing life by running out of the abortion mill, but I myself have not. I’m sharing this to keep emcouraging all of your volunteers and staff to keep fighting for South Dakotan’s babies. Because of your efforts another baby has been chosen to live!  This is of course “hear say” and was told by a neighbor of mine who know I was pro-life.  She mentioned that a co-worker of hers became pregnant a couple years ago and wasn’t sure if she would be able to parent it.  She wasn’t married and had no familiy around to help her. Many of the co-workers came and begged her to adopt.  She chose to keep the baby and raise it on her own.  She later met her boyfriend, and again became pregnant with an unwanted child. Even though the boyfriend was helping her raise the first unwanted baby and was doing good at it, he thought it should be aborted.  They went to Planned Parenthood in Sioux Falls and had an ultrasound first (praise God!) before the abortion.  It was then that the father of the baby took the girlfriend by his side and walked out.  After hearing the heartbeat, he couldn’t kill the baby.  So another miracle story goes back to you!  I just had to share it instead of keeping it to myself. Praise God for all your efforts!  –Kristen

Quote of the Day–Tony Snow

“You want to make every pundit look bad? Then stand tall for what you believe. Don’t be shy. You want to stun the establishment? Then become a mighty force for conservative principles, and tackle the task with confidence and cheer… This may be a time of testing. But it’s not our swan song. Not by a long shot. Instead… this is our moment. This is the time to do what we do best—turn adversity into strength.”

the late Tony Snow, former White House Press Secretary
