Americans Prayerfully United to Advance the Culture of Life
“For Life, Liberty, and Family”
Adapted from original letter posted January 7, 2009
Dear President Obama, Members of the U. S. Congress, Governors of State and
Legislative Bodies, All Political Candidates and all elected and appointed
leaders of the people of the United States of America:
Objective: To restore respect for human life, liberty and family, as a
means of reducing crime; America’s grossly disproportionate prison inmate
population; and the number of pregnancies ending in abortion.
Violent crime reflects a basic disrespect for the lives and liberty of
other individuals. Crime often destroys human life or the liberty to enjoy
freedom or pursue happiness. As crime has skyrocketed in the United States,
so has the cost of defending one’s freedom be it as a criminal defendant or
as a community burdened by the cost of law enforcement and imprisonment of
those convicted of crimes so that others may enjoy the freedoms promised by
the Constitution. Abortion is an act of violence against God and humanity.
Life and Liberty are joint partners, anchored by the family. The
challenge of this country has been to balance the freedom of one individual
against the freedom of others. The essential duty of protecting the lives of
its citizens must not be subjugated to the protection of the liberties of a
We the undersigned respectfully submit for your consideration the
following strategic plan with the desire to accomplish the betterment of all
Americans. We would appreciate the opportunity for open dialogue at town
hall meetings, or at any venue you so choose.
1) Remove all federal and state funding
including Title 10 funding that is used to promote or commit acts against
2) Remove all federal and state funding that is
used to support, promote or commit acts of genocide, abortion and prenatal
murder, including Title 10 funding.
3) Support legislation and allow funding for
development of a Human Life Curriculum for schools; youth detention; centers
and prisons. Said curriculum would include pertinent information regarding
nutrition; natural family planning; the link between fertility, breast
feeding and continuation of the species and other non‐invasive prevention
strategies. The race issue would be addressed with information regarding the
knowledge that all human beings are one race rather than the currently
accepted concept that there are separate races of human beings on the earth.
Essential parenting concepts, fatherhood and motherhood principles and other
information regarding human life and development would be included.
4) Support legislation and provide funding for
enabling mothers and fathers to be actively involved in the educational
choices of their children.
5) Provide legislation, funding for and support
of Public Service Announcements heralding the benefits of embracing family
life as opposed to practicing the use of harmful chemical and surgical
procedures such as artificial birth control and abortion. Such announcements
would be similar to those of those Surgeon General’s warning that smoking is
hazardous to your health.
6) Support legislation and provide funding that
enables provision of Birthing and Crisis Pregnancy Centers throughout
7) Support legislation and provide funding for
Re‐establishment of the Federal Parole System:
8) Support legislation and provide funding for
Municipal Transition Centers: (The Clinton Administration directed funding
to local government for the funding of new prisons and jails. Similar
funding should be directed to local governments for the funding of locally
operated transition centers for newly released prisoners)
9) Provide funding for and support the
development of Local Parole Advisory Boards: made up of local citizens who
assist state parole boards in making parole decisions.
10) Support legislation and provide funding for
Re‐established Prisoner/ Parolee Exchange Programs to maintain balance in
state and federal prison population with parole population and to limit the
growth in prison population.
11) Provide funding, legislation and plan for
utilizing Parolee Labor to rebuild America’s infrastructure as opposed to
12) Provide legislation and funding for federal
and state establishment of a commission made up of civil rights advocates,
spiritual and community leaders, lawyers, law enforcement etc. for a
“jubilee release project” to review individuals for release first
considering those who may have been wrongly convicted, unjustly sentenced
and then those who have demonstrated rehabilitation, targeting a reduction
in federal and state prison populations.
As leaders and lay members of the populations you serve, we welcome the
opportunity to assist and support efforts such as those outlined above in
this letter. We commit ourselves to communicating this information to you
through the channels you provide, and expect to find other creative, loving
and non-violent ways of communicating with you, respectfully acknowledging
your authority to govern, with the expectation of fostering a better life
for all human beings.
