Candidate Surveys: Good News and Bad News




Dear Friend,


The June 2nd Indiana Primary Election is just over one week away, and Hoosiers across the state have been contacting me to find out where candidates in their area stand on an unborn baby’s fundamental right to live.


We all know there’s a grave difference between those politicians who talk the pro-life talk during election season but walk the pro-abort walk during the legislative session.


Some of these fake “pro-lifers” will even go so far as to protest Planned Parenthood when they want the pro-life vote...




...even though they kill bills to end abortion while in office.


Pro-lifers in Indiana want to know which candidates are making it their mission to go to Indy and protect innocent children from abortion.


That’s why I sent the Hoosiers for Life Candidate Survey to candidates throughout Indiana—to see who is willing to go on record and pledge to protect life at the moment of conception.


And I want to share with you some good news--and some bad news-- from my stack of surveys.  


First of all, Representative Curt Nisly from House District 22, the hero of the pro-life movement in Indiana, has once again pledged to author the Protection of Life bill, which would end abortion in our state.  


Nisly has withstood intense scrutiny from Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry, including anti-life politicians who believe killing unborn babies is a constitutional right. Nevertheless, Rep. Nisly is determined to keep fighting to protect our pre-born neighbors and has pledged to author the Protection of Life bill for a fifth time.


Unfortunately, Rep. Nisly’s opponent, Bill Dixon, REFUSES to return his Hoosiers for Life Candidate Survey. His survey was delivered, he signed for it...yet, he REFUSES to go on record against the killing of 8,000 Hoosier babies every year. 

What is Dixon hiding?


Most pro-life candidates jump at the chance to defend an unborn baby’s right to live, yet Bill Dixon is dodging our survey and refusing to stand up for Hoosier babies.


Dixon is also refusing to answer whether or not he believes abortion is a constitutional right.


The right to abortion is not in the Indiana or U.S. Constitution, but, in declining to go on record with his views, Bill Dixon is denying voters the truth about where he really stands on the Sanctity of Life.


I also have some good and bad news for House District 18. The good news is Republican candidate Russ Reahard answered our survey at 100% pro-life, pledging to protect all innocent babies at the moment of conception.  


The bad news is his opponent, Craig Snow, REFUSES to answer our survey!  In so doing, Snow is refusing to go on record with his stance on abortion.


And, when politicians refuse to take a stand on Life, it’s a good indicator they won’t agree with you on other important issues either.


Next is news for those of you in House District 79. Republican candidate Taylor Isch also answered our Candidate Survey at 100% pro-life and has pledged to support the Protection of Life bill. His opponent, Rep. Matt Lehman, however, is refusing to go on record with his pro-life stance and REFUSES to return his survey.


And finally, here are just a few other survey results.  The candidates on the following list have all gone on record and pledged to support life at conception. Not only that, but they’ve pledged to author, co-author, or push for a vote on the Protection of Life bill.


Their opponents either refused to answer the survey or answered in a way that was not satisfactory to protecting Indiana’s preborn.


This is not a full list, so if you do not see your district, then check out our results here.


100% Surveyed with Hoosiers for Life on Protection of Life:


Sara Blohm of House District 4

Russ Reahard of House District 18

Rep. Curt Nisly of House District 22

Mark Cox of House District 73

Taylor Isch of House District 79

Chris Jeter House District 88

John Jacob of House District 93



My friend, the battle ahead is not an easy one.  Pro-aborts deeply treasure their ability to walk into clean clinics for safe abortions.  Planned Parenthood will fight viciously to keep their suction machines going and their baby body parts cash flowing.


But they won’t quit unless we force them to.


And while the pro-abortion crowd would have you believe it’s impossible to stop Planned Parenthood from killing kids, the truth is the Republican super majority in the Indiana Statehouse could abolish abortion if they really wanted to.


The good news is, there are folks out there who are willing to battle with us to end abortion instead of with Planned Parenthood to keep baby killing legal.


Yes, I know the war for a pre-born child’s right to live will be a difficult one, but the fight we must endure is worth it.  Because once it’s over and we win, there will be no more babies legally slain at the hand of Indiana abortion doctors.


The pro-life community in Indiana longs for the day when Planned Parenthood will close its doors for good.  


That’s why I’m dedicated to keeping you informed about the true positions of our elected officials and candidates. And there’s no better time to lobby them than when they’re seeking your support at election time.


So, if you find a candidate in your area who is willing to start right here in Indiana to put an end to the 47 year abortion holocaust in America, call them and thank them for their pro-life stance and insist they hold firm to their pro-life convictions, both on and off the campaign trail.


And, if you could, I hope you’ll consider pitching in $20 or $10 to help me reach out to more folks with news just like what you’ve read today. The more who know about our elected officials’ anti-life views, the louder our voices can be in Indianapolis.


I know we are living in uncertain times and not everyone chip in right now, and I understand. But if you’re able to, even just a few dollars helps because when many people just give a little, it all adds up quickly.


Thank you so much for all of your support and for loving your pre-born neighbor.


For LIFE,

Amy Schlichter
