Dear President Obama:
Congratulations on your historic inauguration.
We'd like to introduce ourselves. We are pro-life Americans.
You will be hearing from us so we'd like to share our motivations.
Like you, we are motivated by faith; we have faith in God in whose image we are created.
Like you, we are motivated by hope; we encourage the kind of hope that is personified by one person reaching out to another in difficult situations like crisis pregnancies, and the experience of suffering from disease.
Like you, we are motivated most of all by love.
We have a deep love for the unique and unrepeatable beauty of every unborn child targeted for abortion, and for that child's mother and father who will be deprived of their child's transforming love.
We have a deep love for the young women of our nation who live in a culture that exploits them as sex objects due to the easy availability of abortion.
We have a deep love for our friends and family who suffer from disease and who deserve medical research and treatment that does not burden their conscience with knowing that human lives were destroyed in the name of science.
We have a deep love for those at the end of life who deserve true care and concern, not the false compassion of euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide.
On this historic occasion that vindicates the rights of human beings who were once considered to be property in American law, we invite you, Mr. President, to lead our nation with policies that respect the dignity and human rights of every human life, from beginning to end.
