Dear Senator Lautenberg

Dear Senator Lautenberg,

In your last communication with me you wrote "As you know, I am a strong supporter of reproductive choice." No, senator, you oppose reproductive choice. A choice implies that there is an alternative.

You not only voted to pay a million dollars a day to the nation's largest provider of abortions, you went out in the streets and publicly lobbied for that money. You have not spent, voted for or even proposed spending a dime for crisis pregnancy centers.

Suppose you said "I'll pay for your chicken dinner, beef is $25/plate." Could you reasonably say you were a strong supporter of "dinner choice?" No, you would be a strong supporter of chicken. Clearly you would want people to choose chicken, since you made it so much easier a choice than beef.

So call yourself what you are: a strong supporter of abortion. Anything else is patently absurd, and an insult to the intelligence of your constituents.
