Holding up signs does not bring change

Editor, the Advocate:
I thank you for your letter as well, Wm. Paul Tasin. I did see the sign, and I can read and understand very well. The sign read "Obama kills." Perhaps you did hold up the sign that read "Please pray for Obama . there was not any mention of the words "please" or "pray" on the sign I referenced to on that Sunday morning. I respect your ability to rewrite my words to express your personal beliefs.
Please reference the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan. Federal funding ban on abortion: "Abortions will not be covered in the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan except in the cases of rape or incest or where the life of the woman would be endangered." A woman who has been violated, experienced the trauma of being raped, carries the rapist's fetus in her body, or is a victim of incest who becomes pregnant, has choices to consider. She makes the ultimate decision, not you, nor me or the government, because of the physical or emotional tragedy which she experienced. There are persons who sit in judgment on a decision that is made when evil situations happen. Why is it that one needs to be invidious by blaming President Obama for abortion choices (pre-existing/existing) made by others?
You stated "what mother would not give her life to save the life of her child?" If you have not actually have been in a life or death crisis with an unborn fetus, you cannot begin to imagine the rest of her story.
Apparently, it's easier to hold up signs of an aborted fetus or defamatory comments about the President of the United States rather than pursue ways to make effective changes.
