Today I walked into the local office of Meghan Schroeder, the representative for Bucks Country district 29. To my surprise, I ran into an old college friend, Sean O’Connor, who is working as her assistant.
I chatted with them both about abolition, and set up an appointment to discuss the matter further on March 5th. Pray as we look for our “Wilberforce” here in Pennsylvania, that we will find someone with the moral resolve to put forward a bill of total abolition in the House and/or Senate. We’ll see if Meghan Schroeder will have the courage to act.
I sent the following email with links to preliminary resources on understanding the ideology and strategy of total abolition.
Letter To Representative Schroeder
Hey Meghan, it was great to speak with you and Sean today. Congratulations on your recent rise to the house!
For our meeting on March 5th, I may bring with me a friend from outside your district, Maureen Bowen, if she has availability. As a mother, fellow abolitionist, and sidewalk counselor outside of planned parenthood in Norristown, she has a great deal of practical knowledge concerning the impact of abortion on the community.
In Bucks country, approximately 20 children are murdered every week, presumably in Warminster, as we have the only abortion facility in our county. Across Pennsylvania, more than 30,000 people are murdered under the protection of pro-life legislation; this equates to the carnage of roughly ten 9/11 terrorist attacks every year in our state (source).
In this context, you’ve been elected to the house of representatives. Quite beautifully, you’ve expressed the following heart toward children on your website:
“Looking at issues that impact our most vulnerable segments of society – the very young and the elderly – is what draws my interest to both the Children and Youth and Aging committees. I look forward to working on legislation that will hopefully strengthen the protections of these two groups, as well as address issues that are specific to their needs.”
Giving this commitment to protect the most vulnerable among us, I appreciate being given the chance to persuade you of the central importance of completely abolishing the holocaust of abortion from our state.
Great evils have risen and fallen in our nation in the past; they always thrive when good people compromise, and they are abolished when good people make an uncompromising stand for justice and mercy. Following the example of Oklahoma and Texas, the abolitionists of Pennsylvania are looking for someone with the backbone to introduce a bill of total and immediate abolition in our state. Since you’re my rep, I figured I’d start with you 🙂
There is of course a lot to take in when discussing abolition, such as the role of forgiveness and mercy for parents who have murdered their children; I’m more than willing to dialog with you on this as you weigh the various ideas that we are putting forward. If there’s one article I’d want you to consider, my defense of immediatism explains why abolition is beginning to replace the pro-life movement as the Christian response to abortion.
Thanks for your time Meghan, and I look forward to chatting with you on the 5th. In Christ,
Abolition: A Christian’s Duty
Many Christians instinctively recognize that they have a God-given duty to help the needy and the oppressed. In Pennsylvania, where the neediest people are the 30,000+ people being murdered by abortion every year, they understand that Jesus does not give us the option to walk by these children on the other side of the road as they bleed into the ground (Luk 10:25-37).
Many Christians know that they should do something, but they don’t know where to begin. The Activate series is designed to give you a simple, free way to educate yourself about the abolition of abortion, and to make an impact on the people in your social network.
Five minutes out of your day can save the child of someone you know. Join the movement that is shifting the culture’s perspective on abortion toward repentance and trust in Jesus Christ.
