In light of the travesty that was signed into law this week in NY, i.e. the Reproductive Health Act, I am writing to ask you to take a firm stand against any future moves toward expanding abortion in our nation.
Abortion is not health care. It is a devastating and regrettable act that you spend the rest of your life trying to recover from. Unfortunately, I speak from experience, the darkest day of my life, and one I've spent almost 20 years recovering from. Health is wholeness, not just of the body, but also of the mind and soul. The body may recover, but the heart and soul of a victim of abortion never fully does. Not only does it wreak havoc on a woman as an individual, but on the family structure. It also allows an opening for other travesties such as poverty, depression, suicide, drug addiction, and more murder to continue. We don't need to expand these horrible cycles, we need to end them.
We most certainly do not need any additional dollars going to fund abortion. The majority of Americans feel absolutely horrified and sickened at the very thought that a minority with seared consciences would applaud murdering an innocent life up to or on the very day of birth!
Please protect the Hyde Amendment and any future amendments or laws that would limit or end abortion in our country and prevent federal funding for this hideous, barbaric and unsafe practice.
Thank you for your attention to this matter and may the Almighty empower you to be worthy of your office and to do the right thing. May God have mercy on us and our nation for allowing so much blood on our hands and hearts.
