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
Dear Friend of Life, Protecting all babies at the moment of conception, without compromise or exception is our goal here in Indiana. And we are not alone in our mission to save every baby from the horror of abortion. Oklahoma Senator Joseph Silk recently filed a bill which would ban all abortions without exception. Last year, a Texas legislator filed an abortion ban, and it has been projected he will do it again. And that’s not all. Other states besides Texas and Oklahoma ar
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.
Breaking: Sources say Republican Establishment Scrambling for New Excuse to Keep Abortion Legal Dear Friend of LIFE, With the announcement of liberal Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, many in the pro-life movement expect President Donald Trump to appoint a conservative who will finally be what we need to overturn Roe v. Wade. The unjust 1973 Supreme Court ruling has been a crutch for some so-called “pro-life” Republicans resistant to ending abortio
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 Friend of LIFE, Sixteen year old Jeremiah Thomas had just one wish. He could’ve visited Disney World. He could’ve met his favorite sports star or his favorite band. But Jeremiah wanted to leave a legacy. And so, when the Make a Wish Foundation offered Jeremiah a wish, do you know what this teenager battling bone cancer said? He said his wish is to end abortion in his home state of Texas. It is not something a typical teenager would choose, but Jeremiah Thomas is anythi
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
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
Indiana’s May 8th primary election is only days away! I know the end of the primary season can get sticky, and it can be challenging to wade through the pool of information in front of you with so many candidates looking for your support. When it comes to an unborn child’s God given right to live, all Republicans say the same thing: “I am pro-life.” But are they really? What choice will they make when they could end abortion in Indiana once and for all? Rep. Curt Nisly made
Dear Friend of Life, We are just shy of a month away from the May 8th Indiana primary elections, and Republican candidates across the state are working hard to convince you they are what you need in Indy. They hope you’ll believe their campaign rhetoric long enough to earn your support, but oftentimes their language changes from election season to legislative session. For example, it is election season now and Representative Ben Smaltz is currently campaigning as a pro-lifer
Dear Friend, The May 8th Indiana Primary election is just 35 days away, and Indiana residents sure are interested in candidates’ positions on LIFE. Last week, I sent you a link where you could find out how folks running for office in your area answered the Hoosiers for Life Candidate Survey. I am getting loads of requests from Hoosiers wanting to know if their candidate pledged to support Rep. Curt Nisly’s Protection at Conception bill, a bill which would end abortion in Ind
Hi Friends! This week has been full of excitement! Lots of completed candidate surveys landed on my desk, and I am thrilled! Many candidates pledged to support the Protection at Conception bill next year, and I am blown away by their responses. Rep. Curt Nisly’s Protection at Conception bill is the strongest piece of pro-life legislation ever filed in the state of Indiana--it would eradicate abortion once and for all. And support for it is growing. While that is great news,
Where in the World is Ben Smaltz’s Survey? Republican politicians have a habit that is plain to see. They are “very pro-life” conservatives during campaign season, but once the legislative session rolls around, they behave more like pro-abort liberals. I’ve had enough of “pro-life” chameleons like Rep. Ben Smaltz slipping into the Statehouse on a pro-life ticket and then morphing into Planned Parenthood’s champion. We need to hold our legislators’ feet to the fire and ensure
After hearing Nikki’s story, I knew I had to share it with you. Ending abortion is not only the most loving thing we can do for our pre-born neighbors, but it is also the most loving thing we can do for their mothers. Oh how I wish ending her child’s life was not a legal choice for Nikki! And Nikki does too. She wrote her story down, and with her permission, here it is. Let’s keep fighting for all Hoosier babies, until all human life is protected at conception. Amy Schlicht
Exposing Frauds in the Statehouse Dear Friend, Anytime now, your Indiana State Representatives and Senators will open their mai lboxes to find an important piece of mail, one in which you, the pro-life voter, will take great interest. Hoosiers for Life is mailing a survey to Indiana legislators, asking them where they stand on the issue of LIFE and the Protection at Conception bill. After all, voters have a right to know whether or not their elected officials intend to end t
Dear Friend, Tomorrow is doomsday for Hoosier babies. Today is their last chance. “Pro-life” Rep. Ben Smaltz is holding fast to his stance of keeping abortion safe and legal, just like Planned Parenthood. Smaltz told the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette he would not hear the Protection at Conception bill because it should be legal to murder rape conceived children. Furthermore, he believes ending abortion would be “catastrophic to the cause.” Ending abortion most certainly would be
