Dear Mr. President,

I hope this letter finds you well.

It is with a sense of reluctance that I address this to you. A sense of reluctance that stems from the fact that I still cannot seem to grasp the importance that you and your role play in the lives of millions of people. Men, children, women.

Women. Or rather, the impact your decisions have on them, is what I would like to discuss. Amidst the chaos that followed the days and weeks of your inauguration as President of the United States of America, there was one particular instance, a decision, that struck me enormously- along with millions of women around the world. It was the moment you took it upon yourself to determine what women could do with their bodies.

The decision to cut funding to foreign abortion services- coming from a fairly progressive and liberal country- struck me as indicative of the lack of consideration, empathy, and humanity with which you tend to operate. However, it is the fact that you made a decision that is so very likely to affect millions of women negatively, on account of your personal opinion on the matter.

Please do reconsider. Seek advice and evaluate which consequences your decision may have on the women in question. With great power, comes compromise. I urge you to come back on this issue, listen carefully to those who disagree with you, and handle it with tact and sensitivity.

There lies truth in one thing, and in its opposite - Heraclitus. 

Sincerely,

Louise

    I really like this letter. Thank you for sharing, Louise! How do you feel about his recent act to support women in STEM? That gave me hope.
