Another Memo: Ending Abortion is Problematic

Dear Friend,

Organization Day was two weeks ago--the day where members of the General Assembly gathered to kick off the 2020 legislative session and visit with their Statehouse buddies once again.

Retiring House Speaker Brian Bosma has a “things to do in Indiana” list, and we know he wants to “focus on the things that are really important.”

Bosma and his crew have the ability to accomplish much in Indiana, since, for at least one more session, Indiana Republicans are sitting pretty with a super majority.

The question I just have to ask is this: what will they do with it?

Most of the Republicans strutting around the marble hallways at the capitol campaigned as “pro-life” during the 2018 elections.

And now, they have the ability to pass a bill to ban abortion, if they want to.

Will they do their jobs and protect all unborn babies at the moment of conception?

If House Speaker Brian Bosma and the rest of the political establishment have their way, the answer is NO.

We already know Bosma held secret meetings, forbidding legislators from ending abortion in Indiana.

He also schemed to replace the most pro-life legislator at the Statehouse, Rep. Curt Nisly.

But now, I’ve come across a copy of a memo the political establishment issued, warning lawmakers to avoid “problematic legislation” which would protect unborn babies under 24 weeks gestation.

Last year, they issued a similar memo, which instructed legislators NOT to support life saving legislation such as Rep. Curt Nisly’s Protection of Life bill.

The memo reads: “All potential legislation that prohibits pre-viable abortions should be avoided.”

If our elected officials follow the directives in this memo, pre-born babies will die, and Planned Parenthood will keep killing kids, business as usual.

Nearly 8,000 unborn children are murdered at the hands of abortionists every year in our state, and Indiana legislators have been warned not to try to save them.

Well, pro-life hero Rep. Curt Nisly is going to try to save them anyway.

Rep. Nisly has taken a stand against the establishment and filed a bill to end abortion three years in a row. House Speaker Brian Bosma threatened to kill the bill, and then Rep. Ben Smaltz did kill it—all three times.

And now, Rep. Nisly has pledged to once again file legislation which would save ALL unborn babies from the horror of abortion, and the establishment is once again plotting to kill the bill.

My friends, we did not put our elected officials in office to do Planned Parenthood’s bidding and kill pro-life bills.

Unborn babies have a God given right to live, and our Representatives have a duty to protect that life.

Help me hold Indiana politicians accountable to their pro-life promises by joining Hoosiers for Life at the Indiana Statehouse on January 8th.

I plan to deliver 40,000 petitions to Brian Bosma and his pals, and I’d love for you to be there with me when I do.

Last week I told you we only needed $1,000 more by December 15th to print every last petition, and we are so close to meeting that goal!

I will print the petitions I have the funding to print, but my goal is to be able to print them all!

These petitions will let your elected officials know you expect them to stand for LIFE, and it will remind them you are the reason they have a seat at the Statehouse.

So, please, come with me to Indianapolis to stand up for our pre-born neighbors.

Even though Bosma is on his way out the door, he has a duty to protect unborn babies, not kill pro-life bills.

Representative Nisly will soon give Indiana legislators a chance to prove if they are truly pro-life or if they are just saying so to gain your vote.

Join us on January 8th at the Statehouse and nudge your Representatives in the right direction.

I’ll let you know when the Protection of Life bill is introduced.

Until then, be watchful of legislation designed only to “gain momentum,” instead of saving lives.

For Life,

Amy Schlichter

P.S. The political establishment warned legislators to avoid any legislation which would save babies under 24 weeks gestation.

This means our Representatives have been instructed NOT to support the Protection of Life bill, which would end abortion in Indiana.

If you haven’t already, Sign your Protection of Life petition today and let your elected officials know they SHOULD support a bill to end abortion in Indiana. Then, forward the petition to your pro-life friends.
