I write because you represent the people of your state. Your duty is to protect the lives of those people. Their location should not matter, as long as their corpus is within the boundaries of your state. I believe that deep down, you should understand this. You did not get elected because you are ignorant, nor a fool.
In our country, there is one state that has chosen to defy human decency and common sense. That state is New York. In all likelihood, your state does some sort of business/commerce with New York. That exchange should cease, until New York changes its new stance on killing newborn babies. One of the first declarations of our rights in our founding documents is the declaration that every citizen has a right to LIFE. That’s the FIRST one. Because it is very basic. When a state chooses to kill, or to sanction the killing of American lives, it is violating our Constitution in the most egregious way.
New York has chosen not to protect the lives of its citizens. They have determined that the rest of America does not understand the very basic definition of “life” or “human being.” Just for clarity, we [humans] define life this way: “the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.” We define the human being as “a man, woman, or child of the species Homo sapiens, distinguished from other animals by superior mental development, power of articulate speech, and upright stance.” Lest one equivocate over the human infant’s capacity to reproduce, speak, or stand upright, no one doubts that given the chance to exercise its capacity to GROW, he will also eventually stand upright, speak, and have the capacity to reproduce. Your reading this is itself proof of that premise. Further, our federal government has chosen to protect the American Bald and Golden Eagles, to the extent that we protect the EGG as if it were an Eagle. Are we NOT to apply the same logic to the HUMAN, who is simply removed from the potential place of death by a mere few inches? Or worse, one who simply has not taken his first breath? Do you not see the hypocrisy?
I come to you as a citizen. I plead with you, and with your whole state government: speak out about this heinous new law that New York has just instated. Call Governor Cuomo and reprimand him for his inhuman act of signing that bill into law. Sanction that state for NOT PROTECTING ITS CITIZENS.
What is to stop a mother from simply killing a baby that is a day old, a week old, a month old? Do you not, seriously, see the slippery slope this country is on since Roe V. Wade?
Do not think for a moment that a callous, hardened heart will somehow escape the reward of approving of, condoning, celebrating, or even ‘tolerating’ such thought. Whether you believe in a G-d or not, most of us in America do. And our Creator, mentioned in our Declaration of Independence, hates this new law, and I state that with absolute confidence. Not because I think myself a prophet, or better than any other man, but because the scriptures upon which our laws were founded, whether you’ve denied that fact or not, state: “There are six things which יהוה hates, yes, seven which are an abomination unto Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood…” He clearly believes that the person who is residing in the womb of his mother IS a person. He told the prophet Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the belly I knew you, and before you came forth out of the womb I set you apart…” The prophet, John the Immerser, leaped in the womb, when he sensed the presence of the Messiah in his cousin’s womb. How dare anyone think to take the life of an infant, simply because he has not breathed his first breath. He is partaking of his mother’s LIFE while he is in the womb. He is a person. Ask any mother or father in this country whether they would have grieved at the loss of their child, before or after his birth. Do NOT harden your heart to these infant citizens.
I am, along with as many as I can persuade, demanding that you and all U.S. state governors SANCTION the state of New York, and speak about the atrocity that is this new law, and rail against the murder of American Citizens, born and unborn. If we do not, then eventually, simply passing through any door, real or imagined, will be cause enough for the death of any of us. This wicked, perverted, heinous line of thought must be extinguished. If it is not, this country will perish. Mark these words.
