Congressman Sanford Bishop has stated that he is pro-life. Evidence proves otherwise. On January 24, 2017, the US House of Representatives voted to permanently prohibit federal funds for abortion. Sanford Bishop voted against the bill two times.
In 2015, Sanford Bishop voted twice to support Planned Parenthood. The issue will come up again.
I am afraid that he is listening to Nancy Pelosi and her friends instead of the people of Southwest Georgia. He needs to end the hypocrisy and tell us where he stands.
Below is a letter to Congressman Bishop asking him to vote to defund Planned Parenthood.
January 30, 2017
Congressman Sanford Bishop
2407 Rayburn HOB
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Congressman Bishop,
You have abandoned your stated pro-life position. Even worse, you are now supporting taxpayer funding of abortions. On January 24, 2017, you voted twice to support taxpayer funding of abortions by opposing making the Hyde amendment permanent.
On May 13, 2015 you voted twice to oppose the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This act recognizes the truth that at 20 weeks an unborn child senses pain. It would outlaw abortions after 20 weeks except in certain cases.
On September 18, 2015 you voted twice to oppose the defunding of Planned Parenthood. This was after the revelation of their cold blooded actions to market body parts of aborted children.
The entire nation was shocked to hear the callous conversations over wine and dinner graphically describing how to wait until the right time and use the right procedure to maximize the harvest of organs from the dead child. Planned Parenthood talked about killing unborn children in the same manner as if they were on the Georgia Farm Monitor discussing how to increase the yield of cotton or peanuts.
Planned Parenthood is an organization founded on a philosophy of racism. Taxpayers should not give a penny to support it. Frankly, I am amazed that you would even consider protecting this organization.
There will be another bill coming up to defund Planned Parenthood. I ask you to vote to cut off all taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood.
If you are unwilling to do that, then please be honest and stop saying that you are pro-life. The evidence proves otherwise. End your hypocrisy and tell the people of Southwest Georgia that you support abortion, that you support using federal tax dollars to kill unborn children, and that you support Planned Parenthood. Please let me know how you stand and plan to vote.
Donald E. Cole
