Indiana Republicans Scheme to Dodge Pro-life Amendment

Dear Friend,

Indiana Republicans are at it again.

After voting against providing life saving care to premature babies, Establishment politicians are shaking in their boots at the thought of having to vote on Rep. Nisly’s and Rep. Jacob’s “fetal harm” amendment coming up today.

Inside sources say the Establishment is scrambling to dodge another roll call vote on life this session.

They’ll do just about anything to avoid revealing their true pro-life stance!

And sources close to the Statehouse tell me Republican leadership is plotting to kill their own bill, SB 197, in order to skirt this vote.

Let me explain.

Rep. Nisly and Rep. Jacob are heroes for the unborn, fighting tooth and nail to protect babies.

This week, they both filed “fetal harm” amendments, which would prohibit the harming of a fetus at any stage of development, to Rep. Steuerwald’s 197.

True “pro-life” Reps. would jump at the chance to prohibit harming an unborn child.

Barbaric actions against the preborn should be illegal, and our pro-life Representatives should agree!

But instead of pushing for this measure, our elected officials are evading a vote at all costs.

What are Indiana Republicans hiding?

Hoosiers deserve to know how their Rep. would classify poisoning, dismembering, starving, burning, or intentionally causing the demise of the life of an unborn child.

And unborn babies deserve protection under the law!

That’s why I hope you’ll make two phone calls today.

First, please call Rep. Greg Steuerwald and ask him NOT to kill his own bill to sidestep a vote on LIFE.

Steuerwald’s number is 317-232-9620.

Tell him he should support the “fetal harm” amendment to his bill, SB 197.

Secondly, House Speaker Todd Huston needs to hear from you.

The last time the Establishment schemed to kill their own bill to dodge a life vote, they received so much flak from pro-lifers that they decided not to kill the bill. Instead, Huston took charge and used some other tricks he had up his sleeve.

Huston may pull the same stunts, pretending he doesn’t hear Rep. Nisly and Rep. Jacob, or speeding through the bill so there’s no time for amendments.

No doubt, the House Speaker has a backup plan if killing SB 197 doesn’t pan out.

So please call Huston today at 317-232-9677 and tell him to stop being a snake who helps Republicans avoid voting on solid pro-life legislation.

Urge him to protect unborn babies instead.

After all, there should be no division among Republican pro-life politicians when it comes to protecting unborn babies from harm.

I’ll be keeping tabs on what happens in session today. I sure hope our Representatives will do the right thing.

Thank you for making those calls. I’m always interested to hear how they go. Feel free to message me back and let me know!

For Life,

Amy Schlichter

P.S. Indiana House Republicans are plotting to doge a roll call vote on a pro-life amendment, and our sources say they plan to kill their own bill to do so.

Once the scheme is exposed, House Speaker Todd Huston may switch tactics and attempt to thwart the vote another way like he has before.

Please call Rep. Steuerwald and House Speaker Todd Huston to tell them they should stop dodging pro-life votes and instead support pro-life legislation.

Steuerwald: 317-232-9620

Huston: 317-232-9677
