Dear Congressman Tim Bishop,

When I first met you, you asked how you could best serve the people in your first election. Well through your yes vote on health care reform you actually listened. This vote cast by you is life affirming since I do believe it will save lives. I know we differ when it comes to abortion, but frankly as a person who hates abortion, I am so sick of abortion being used as a primary issue to divide this nation. Where are my pro-life brethren when it comes to killing innocent people through war in both Iraq and Afghanistan? They are silent! As I witnessed our country's first strike on Iraq known as "Shock and Awe", I thought of all the innocent children who would be killed. Even the late Pope John Paul II said to former President George W. Bush, "You go without God".

As I have witnessed the terrorism pushed forth by the opposition, what it tells me is that they who I thought were my brethren when it came to being anti-abortion were anything but. Their violence told a much different story. Little do they realize that their words have consequences and those consequences being the possibility to end human lives.

In the upcoming house elections, I as a person who is staunchly anti-abortion will side with you in helping to re-elect you as my congressman. It is my hope that you pass this email sent to you onto Congressman Bart Stupak who has received death threats. When that congressman, Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Tex.) shouted out "baby killer" when Rep. Stupak was addressing the House, little does, Neugebauer realize how many babies were killed in our illegal invasion of Iraq. Little does Neugebauer realize how many babies are losing their lives in Afghanistan.
