A Very Productive P.A.L. Night

Here's a quick sampling of some of the other letters (70 plus) that were written at last night's letter-writing event. Not bad for only 8 of us!

Bill wrote Nebraska State Senator Coash --

I want to thank you for your efforts on behalf of LB521 and LB690.  These bills address issues, as you well know, that are serious enough to warrant a considered debate by the full unicameral.  Please do not relent in your attempts to get these bills out of committee.  Unborn children are counting on you.

Quint wrote the stonewalling State Senator Brad Ashford who has worked hard to keep a parental consent law from getting the full floor debate that Nebraskans deserve --

I urge you to vote for LB521 -- at least to allow this bill to come out of committee and be voted on the floor.  This bill could go a long way toward stopping Planned Parenthood’s plans to establish at least 6 new “health clinics” across Nebraska.  I don’t need to remind you that Planned Parenthood is our country’s largest abortion provider, and does over 1/3 of all surgical abortions nationwide.  Beyond that, they do many chemical abortions which they plan to do by web cam conferencing where an abortionist merely talks "off site" to the patient.  I’m sure Nebraska doesn’t want this.  I and my friends certainly don’t.

Don Kohls protested Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle's enthusiastic support of Planned Parenthood --

I was very disappointed to read in the Omaha World-Herald of your celebration of the new Planned Parenthood facility on 93rd Street. What a tragedy that you would support an organization that is the largest provider of surgical abortion in the U.S. as well as a distributor of the dangerous abortifacient RU-486. Planned Parenthood is also known for its underhanded cover-up of crime; i.e., sexual activity between a minor and an adult and even advising the sex slave industry how to avoid the law. Your support of this organization that destroys life is wrong.

I wrote a card to Congressman Lee Terry about the G.O.P. caving in to Democrat pressure on the budget vote --

Of that much publicized $38 billion budget cut the G.O.P. “won”, only a few million are really going to get axed!  That’s using the CBO figures.  And, for that matter, even the $38 billion was peanuts given that the deficit rose almost twice that amount in the 8 days before the vote!  Please, Congressman Terry, get serious about cutting spending!

I'll post a few more tomorrow.
