President Biden  c/o The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President,

I really do respect you for trying to get a pulse on what is going on out here. I know that you don’t agree with my pro-life views but I wanted to challenge you as a fellow Christian to re-examine your pro-choice view.

In the past I have spent most of my time looking at this issue from the spiritual side. In the film series “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE HUMAN RACE?” the arguments are presented  against abortion (Episode 1),  infanticide (Episode 2),   euthanasia (Episode 3), and then there is a discussion of the Christian versus Humanist worldview concerning the issue of “the basis for human dignity” in Episode 4 and then in the last episode a close look at the truth claims of the Bible.

Francis Schaeffer

I truly believe that many of the problems we have today in the USA are due to the advancement of humanism in the last few decades in our society. Ronald Reagan appointed the evangelical Dr. C. Everett Koop to the position of Surgeon General in his administration. He partnered with Dr. Francis Schaeffer in making the video WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE HUMAN RACE? which can be found on You Tube. It is very valuable information for Christians to have.

Today I want to respond to your letter to me on July 9, 2021. Here it is below:

THE WHITE HOUSE

WASHINGTON

July 9, 2021

Mr. Everette Hatcher III

Alexander, AR

Dear Mr. Hatcher,

Thank you for taking your time to share your thoughts on abortion. Hearing from passionate individuals like me inspires me every day, and I welcome the opportunity to respond to your letter

Our country faces many challenges, and the road we will travel together will be one of the most difficult in our history. Despite these tough times, I have never been more optimistic for the future of America. I believe we are better positioned than any country in the world to lead in the 21st century not just by the example of our power but by the power of our example.

As we move forward to address the complex issues of our time, I encourage you to remain an active participant in helping write the next great chapter of the American story. We need your courage and dedication at this critical time, and we must meet this moment together as the United States of America. If we do that, I believe that our best days still lie ahead.

Sincerely

Joe Biden

Mr. President, you have for decades supported the Hyde Amendment, but now you have changed your mind. This week Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who supports the Hyde Amendment, was asked about including it in reconciliation. His response was clear: “It has to be. It has to be. That’s dead on arrival if that’s gone.”

The Left Is Trying to Bypass Longstanding Pro-Life Protections in $3.5 Trillion Spending Bill. Here Is What You Need to Know.

COMMENTARY BY

Melanie Israel@Melanie_Israel

Melanie Israel is a policy analyst with the DeVos Center for Religion & Civil Society at The Heritage Foundation.

Congress is currently piecing together a massive $3.5 trillion spending package. The legislation covers a vast range of issues: welfare, immigration, taxes, energy, families, and much more. In its current form, the bill contains a major and divisive change to abortion policy that would reject longstanding policies—which have been enacted on a bipartisan basis and are broadly supported across the political spectrum—that disentangle tax dollars from abortion activity.

For more than four decades, Congress has taken steps to prevent taxpayer dollars from funding abortions in federal programs by incorporating “policy riders” into spending bills. These riders establish certain conditions or limitations on how federal agencies can use taxpayer dollars.

One such policy is the Hyde Amendment, which since 1976 has prohibited the Department of Health and Human Services from spending taxpayer dollars for most abortions. The principle of the Hyde Amendment has been applied in many additional contexts over the years, from foreign aid funding to government workers who get health insurance through the Federal Employee Health Benefits program.

The Hyde Amendment is good, lifesaving policy. It has saved over 2.4 million lives since its inception. And it’s also a broadly supported policy: a majority of Americans oppose using taxpayer dollars to fund elective abortion.

When Congress initially began work on this bill, the Senate voted—on a bipartisan basis—to include an amendment calling for the budget to comply with pro-life policies like the Hyde Amendment. While the move was nonbinding, it demonstrated that senators rightly recognized the process being used to consider this bill—which allows it to pass on a narrow party-line vote—could become a vehicle to bypass consensus pro-life guardrails that have become standard inclusions during the normal appropriations process.

Those senators were right to be concerned. Progressives in Congress are attempting to massively expand taxpayer spending on health care services. Yet the current bill text, as crafted in House committees, fails to incorporate language applying longstanding pro-life policies like the Hyde Amendment.

What does that mean in practice?

First, the bill creates a new program directed at individuals living in a dozen states that have elected to not expand Medicaid, a program designed originally to help lower-income Americans access care. Per the Hyde Amendment, Medicaid funds haven’t been used for more than 40 years to pay for most abortions (there are exceptions for rape, incest, and when a mother’s life is in danger). But the new program—which is basically a Medicaid look-alike program, would not include these protections—meaning taxpayers would directly pay for elective abortions within this parallel program.

But that’s not all. The Medicaid look-alike program for individuals in nonexpansion states wouldn’t go into effect until 2025. So, in the meantime, the House proposal would provide qualifying individuals with heavily subsidized Obamacare plans.

The plans would also be required to cover “family planning” services for those individuals, with the Department of Health and Human Services reimbursing insurers for 100% of the added cost—all without the Hyde-like protections that apply in other contexts of Obamacare to ensure that tax dollars aren’t underwriting abortion.

There are also massive amounts of spending for various public health programs, such as community health centers, health care education programs, medical education institutions, and more. This spending is being routed through new funding streams.

Unlike the traditional way of enacting federal health spending—i.e., Congress appropriates funding for HHS—which would be subject to a 60-vote threshold in the Senate, these new funding streams are separate from HHS appropriations and do not apply the principle of the Hyde Amendment to restrict tax dollars from promoting abortion.

It also only faces a lower threshold of votes to pass, needing only a simple majority of 51 votes.

During committee markups, multiple attempts by Republican lawmakers to remedy these problems and apply Hyde protections were rebuffed.

While the final text of the bill is still in flux—the full House still has to vote, and the Senate is still writing its version—one thing is very clear: House Democrats have crafted a bill that deliberately excludes decades of consensus policies to disentangle tax dollars from abortion activity in federal programs.

This week Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who supports the Hyde Amendment, was asked about including it in reconciliation. His response was clear: “It has to be. It has to be. That’s dead on arrival if that’s gone.”

Failing to incorporate the lifesaving principles of the Hyde amendment in the $3.5 trillion monstrosity opens the door for taxpayer dollars to pay for elective abortions, abortion-related training for health care providers, and more.

It’s not too late to change course. Congress should reject attempts to use the reconciliation process to bypass the decades-long, bipartisan approach to applying pro-life protections in spending measures.

I am a proud member of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers and I attended the convention in Dallas in July and we have officially launched a nationwide push against abortion rights.

The article below notes:

At its first annual policy conference last weekend, group members voted to make a controversial new Texas law, the “Texas Heartbeat Bill,” the organization’s first piece of model legislation, meaning that similar bills may soon pop up in state capitols across the country.

Also I am excited to report that the WASHINGTON POST wrote in September 3, 2021:

Announcing he planned to introduce a copycat bill, Arkansas state Sen. Jason Rapert (R), the founder and president of the National Association of Christian Lawmakers, shared a template of legislation lawmakers in other states could fill in the blanks on and reproduce.

At the July 17th session of THE CHRISTIAN LAWMAKERS meeting in Dallas, I really got a lot out of the expert panel moderated by Texas State Senator Bryan Hughes entitled ABOLISHING ABORTION IN AMERICA. Here below is what Wikipedia says about Senator Hughes:

On March 11, 2021, Hughes introduced a fetal heartbeat bill entitled the Texas Heartbeat Bill (SB8) into the Texas Senate and state representative Shelby Slawson of Stephenville, Texas introduced a companion bill (HB1515) into the state house.[22]The bill allows private citizens to sue abortion providers after a fetal heartbeat has been detected.[22] The SB8 version of the bill passed both chambers and was signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott on May 19, 2021.[22] It took effect on September 1, 2021.[22]

______________________________________

Thank you so much for your time. I know how valuable it is. I also appreciate the fine family that you have and your commitment as a father and a husband. Now I wanted to make some comments concerning our shared Christian faith.  I  respect you for putting your faith in Christ for your eternal life. I am pleading to you on the basis of the Bible to please review your religious views concerning abortion. It was the Bible that caused the abolition movement of the 1800’s and it also was the basis for Martin Luther King’s movement for civil rights and it also is the basis for recognizing the unborn children.

Sincerely,

Everette Hatcher III, 13900 Cottontail Lane, Alexander, AR 72002, ph 501-920-5733,
