Indiana House Speaker Plotting to Kill Pro-life Bill

Dear Friends,

A couple of weeks ago, I told you our Indiana House Speaker, Brian Bosma, warned Indiana Republicans against ending abortion in the upcoming 2020 legislative session.

Then, I wrote to you letting you know Brian Bosma himself spearheaded a scouting effort to replace pro-life hero Rep. Curt Nisly.

I’m afraid the reports have gotten worse

Insiders now tell me Speaker Bosma is plotting to kill the Protection of Life bill, which would protect Hoosier children from being murdered inside their mothers’ wombs.

It never seems to be the right time for Indiana legislators to protect unborn babies.

I know I shared this statement from Bosma last time, but I must share it with you again.

He said, “You guys ought to be focusing on the stuff that’s really important.”

Indiana legislators have the ability to end abortion, and yet, they continually decide it is not really important.

As easy as it would be to blame Brian Bosma alone for failing to protect pre-born Hoosier children, in the past, he has had accomplices.  

In the last three legislative sessions, Rep. Bosma worked alongside the Chairman of the Public Policy committee to make sure the Protection of Life bill died.  

Supporters of the strongest pro-life legislation ever to be filed in the state of Indiana urged Rep. Ben Smaltz, chairman of the Public Policy Committee, to give the bill a fair hearing and a vote.

Indiana leadership ignored pro-lifers and did Planned Parenthood’s bidding, making sure our request was denied.

One of Smaltz’s staffers admitted he was too afraid of Planned Parenthood to move the bill forward.

Ben Smaltz, along with other committee members, stood complacent as Bosma gave the orders to focus on other things:  

“We are always going to disagree about issues like abortion, marriage and perhaps even a hate crimes law.  My commitment is not to get distracted on these issues.”

The abortion holocaust is happening in our country, in our own state, and Brian Bosma is committed to ignoring it. Ben Smaltz obeyed his orders and ignored it, too, earning a thank you from Planned Parenthood.

Disregarding the bill cost Hoosiers the lives of nearly 24,000 children in the last three years.

Disregarding it again will cost 8,000 more.

Republican leadership’s blatant disregard for the lives of pre-born babies just makes me want to fight even harder for these innocent little ones.

The Establishment's sinister plot to kill the bill will infuriate thousands of voters. And if the bill that could save thousands of babies from abortion is refused a fair hearing and a vote—again-- Indiana voters will hear about it, and I’m going to be the one to tell them.

I am keeping track of who does what this session, because election time is coming.  

While the legislators may not care about dying babies, they do care about being reelected.

Trust me, even some of those that are currently designing to kill the Protection of Life bill will have challengers in the primary, and they will be desperate to convince their voters that they are pro-life.

I will be here to remind pro-lifers that most legislators have prioritized their own political stature over protecting the lives of children.  I will let voters know the truth and I will provide the evidence.

The battle for the lives of Indiana babies this year has just begun. I know we have a lot of work to do, but I also know with supporters like you, it is possible to accomplish our goals.

I plan to deliver 40,000 petitions to the Indiana Statehouse early next year. These petitions are the voices of Hoosiers who support the Protection of Life bill, and they will speak volumes to Brian Bosma and the rest of his cronies.

In order to print and deliver that many petitions, I need to raise $2,400 by December 15th.

Would you consider chipping in $15 or $20 to help me cover the cost of printing and delivery?

I’ve already received some donations for this effort, and I am so thankful for each and every dollar contributed. We are on our way to meeting our goal, but we just aren’t there yet.

Thank you so much for standing in the gap for the helpless pre-born babies in Indiana. Your assistance is a vital asset to the work we do here at Hoosiers for Life.

If you have already signed the petition in support of the Protection of Life bill, forward this email to some friends who haven’t yet.

Brian Bosma and Ben Smaltz don’t want to be “distracted” this year, so let’s make sure they focus on the things that are really important—Hoosier babies.

Thanks for standing with me.

For Life,

Amy Schlichter

P.S. Sources say House Speaker, Brian Bosma, intends to kill the Protection of Life bill, which would save all Indiana babies from abortion. For the last three years, Rep. Ben Smaltz helped kill the bill.

Early next year, I plan to deliver 40,000 petitions insisting Indiana legislators do their jobs and end abortion in our state.

I hope you’ll consider chipping in $15 or $20 to help me print and deliver those petitions.

After that, if you have already signed the petition in support of the Protection at Conception bill, forward this email to some friends who haven’t yet.
