Dear Republican Party,
The cowardice of a few has resulted in the betrayal of the many.
Whom have you betrayed, you ask. Look out your windows right now, I’ll wait….
Do you see now the sea of faces stretching as far as the eye can see across the Mall? Good. Now I want you to do a mental count of the faces in the crowd as to whether they are male or female. I’ll wait….
This is important since the excuse was about alienating women voters. The blaming of these 2 congresswomen who objected is still misplaced because the Speaker of the House refused to call a vote and the bill did not need their votes to pass. While their actions are reprehensible – blaming these women for you cancelling the vote is despicable. Is that really the narrative you want to send to America? Blame Women? Now about our count —
Strange how many women are out there – in fact they are the clear majority. Funny that.
What you need to know is that these are the people who put you in office, these are the people who voted for you to defend life. Key word there defend. Like a husband is expected to defend his family, whether you win or lose it irrelevant so long as you try. How would your wife feel toward you if you both were attacked in an alleyway and you refused to protect your wife for fear of getting hurt while she was brutally raped – and you cowered in a corner. That is how I see you right now. We expected Obama to veto the bill, but we expected you to stand up and defend life instead of rolling over like the cowardly husband.
Now let me ask you what kind of marriage or relationship you would have with your wife after that?
If you’re honest with yourself then your head is hanging in shame and regret. You could never replace that trust, and the relationship would be destroyed. I want you to think about the fact that today, on all days – with the Life March, that is what you have done to us. Our hopes and dreams of being heard and acted on were dashed when you refused to vote on the measure. To the many voters for whom the right to life is a critical issue, and for the millions of innocents who will now be murdered without a single congressional vote even being raised in their defense.
There is still time to correct your most grievous mistake. Do the right thing, you’ll sleep well at night and we’ll support you again in 2 years. You might even get your self respect back. If nothing else, you will be able to face your creator and say I tried my best and failed, but I did try to do the right thing.
