Dear Friend, After diligent pressure from Hoosiers for Life and hundreds of phone calls, emails, and messages from folks like you, House Speaker Brian Bosma released his hostage bill, HB 1430, to the Public Policy committee. Thanks to your hard work, we still have a chance to get a fair hearing and a roll call vote on the strongest pro-life legislation ever filed in the state of Indiana—HB 1430. When you speak up, your elected officials really do listen! It wasn’t easy to ge
It's TIME! Dear Friend, This is the moment we have all been fighting for! After fighting the good fight for forty six years, striving to save babies and help women, revealing the horrors of abortion, and educating the public about the true nature of Planned Parenthood, the moment the pro-life movement has been fighting for has finally arrived! For the third year in a row, Rep. Curt Nisly has filed the Protection at Conception bill, HB 1430, which treats the unborn like any ot
Dear Friend of Life, “…in this world, nothing is certain, except death and taxes.” So said Benjamin Franklin. And it’s true. However, there are some outcomes which may not be as certain as death and taxes but we are still pretty sure they will happen. Take, for example, the behavior of living organisms. We can predict wolves will hunt, worms will squirm, and the sloth will eventually descend from its tree. Yes, some living things are extremely predictable. And one such crea
Dear Friend of LIFE, Back in June, I dreaded sharing this news with you, but I did it anyway--because you deserve to know the truth. Indiana abortion rates are climbing. The Indiana State Department of Health 2017 termination report reveals abortionists murdered 500 more babies in 2017 than they did in 2016. Not only that, but 27 of those precious children were second trimester babies. (See full report here: INDIANA STATE DEPT OF HEALTH TERMINATION REPORT) And to make matters
Dear Friend of LIFE, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer I watched the movie. Once it was over, the audience stayed put, silent, through the end credits. I waited too. And no one left until the next screening began. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell left quite an impression on everyone watching that night. He was a late term abortionist in Philadelphia, and his practice can only be described as a house of horrors. When his facility was raided in 2010 due to suspi
Dear Friend, I hear them call out, “We are here for you and your baby! Please let us help you!” Volunteers with Madalyn’s Hope stand on the sidewalk outside of an abortion clinic in Merrillville, offering hope and help to abortion minded women. The group assists with baby supplies such as diapers, wipes, and clothing, as well as equipment like bassinets and car seats. They also have post abortive women on standby to counsel the moms. Child killing centers are the last lines
Dear Friend of Life, “We don’t trade lives.” This is the message an Indiana pastor is sharing on behalf of his pre-born neighbors. In a recent blog post, Pastor Derin Stidd of Aletheia Church recalls the line in the latest Avengers movie, Infinity Wars, noting how Steve Rogers (Captain America), refuses to sacrifice one person to save the rest. Pastor Derin writes: "...at a certain point Rogers and another character named Vision are trying to figure out a resolution to the b
Dear Friend of Life, Everyone knows Planned Parenthood kills unborn children, but most people did not know until recently the abortion business also sells baby body parts. David Daleiden exposed Planned Parenthood’s hidden agenda in a series of videos, which capture abortionists telling the truth about what they are paid to do—rip apart babies. Planned Parenthood sued, fighting to silence Daleiden and bury the shocking videos. Recently, most charges against him were dropped.
Dear Friend of Life, One of the common excuses I hear for not saving babies is, “But the courts will never approve it.” This is not a valid reason for failing to act on Protection at Conception, and let me show you why. First, legislators need to do their jobs and protect life as they pledged to do during their campaigns. The legislature is a separate and distinct branch from the courts in our constitutional republic. When legislators use the courts as an excuse to not save
Save the Date: International Pro-life Speaker Coming to Indiana Dear Friend, Conceived in rape and surviving two back alley abortion attempts, Rebecca Kiessling is a staunch advocate for pre-born babies with personal ties to common pro-abortion arguments. She shares her story around the world, dismantling reasons for keeping child killing legal. And I’m excited to share with you--she’s coming to Indiana! Please join us for a fundraiser banquet at Greenwood Bible Baptist Chu
With President Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nomination scheduled to be announced tonight, most pro-life Americans are hopeful for the chance to end abortion once and for all. Protecting all unborn children at the moment of conception has been Hoosiers for Life’s goal all along, and with the promise of a conservative, anti-abortion Justice nomination, it seems there are no excuses left as to why we cannot pass Rep. Curt Nisly’s Protection at Conception Bill. But, there are t
Dear Friend of LIFE, Indiana Republican officials are feeling the pressure from voters who demand an end to the slaughter of 22 Hoosier babies to abortion every single day. One clear sign of this is the language in the Indiana Republican Party platform. For 2018, the platform has added language to “affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed.” My friend, this is your doing. This change in language by Indiana Republicans is a result
Dear Friends of LIFE, Jackie* stumbled through the Women’s Med Center door and hunched in the dirty mulch outside the Indianapolis abortion clinic. Gagging, she hung her head between her knees, allowing streams of drool to splatter the ground between her feet. She wore snow boots, even though it was a sticky 90-degrees. Sidewalk counselors called out to her, but she struggled to answer, and soon, she lay down in the dirt. Something was clearly wrong. After some time, Jackie
I watched a disturbing video clip this week.
In it, a roaring crowd dances, cheers, even sobs in the streets, after Ireland announces voting results to repeal an amendment banning abortion.
The people of Ireland have voted in favor of killing their own children.
The mob of pro-aborts nearly swoons over its forthcoming freedom to murder pre-born Irish babies, without having to bother with breaking the law.
Since the referendum passed, legislation to regulate

Our middle school winner is Amelia Sweet! Congratulations Amelia! Read Amelia's entire essay below. Amy Schlichter Executive Director Hoosiers for Life Abortion is Murder On April 20, I went to an abortion clinic to help save babies for the first time. When we got there, we talked to some of the sidewalk counselors, but then a young woman pulled in the parking lot. The security guard walked to her car and started walking her in while we were pleading with her to save her
Our high school essay contest winner is Hally Sweet! Congratulations Hally! You can read Hally's entire essay below. Amy Schlichter Executive Director Hoosiers for Life All life is important from the time of conception. No exceptions. Some might try to argue otherwise, but I hope to show you why no excuse is good enough to slaughter a baby. Proverbs 6:16-19 says, “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands t
Making our voices heard to our elected officials is an important step in securing an unborn baby’s God-given right to live. In last week’s primary election, pro-lifers in Indiana did just that. Elections, of course, are where politicians are forced to seek the “consent of the governed” in the United States.
In fact, for this very reason, most elected officials hate contested elections. And they especially hate having opposition in a primary.
This makes elec
