“Our purpose wasn’t to call John Boehner out, it was to appeal to him as Speaker of the House to do something about this,” Dale Christian, pastor of First Baptist Church in Troy, Ohio, told Breitbart News.
“Now’s the time to do it because of the [annual] budget process,” he added.
Kevin Smith, a spokesman for Boehner, told Breitbart News the office has received the letter and Boehner will respond.
Every fall, Congress allocates spending for a myriad federal programs, including roughly $550 million for Planned Parenthood that funds programs for women’s health and contraception. That funding doesn’t pay for abortions, but it helps the group run its entire operation, including the abortion facilities where the organs of mangled and intact aborted babies are sliced up for delivery to research centers.
Christian launched the drive after watching the videotapes of Planned Parenthood officials talking about their transfer of aborted babies’ organs. “It just touched my heart,” he explained. “Our daughter is expecting our first grandchild. We just found out it’s going to be a little girl. She’s already been named, Lindsey Nicole, and you know that child, she’s a baby, just because she hasn’t been born yet, doesn’t mean she’s not a baby.”
“Within two weeks… within that short period of time, we had 70 pastors sign,” he said, adding more are coming in, and they anticipate on sending the letter again to get Boehner’s attention. “We’re thinking if you have, you know 150 or so pastors that represent you know 10, 15, 20,000 people, he’s got to listen to us,” Christian stated.
A member of Christian’s congregation, JD Winteregg – who is also challenging John Boehner in the GOP’s primary – also spoke to Breitbart News about the letter.
