Pro-life Republicans Betray Unborn Babies

Dear Friend,

Today is Doomsday for Hoosier babies.

Once the gavel slams at the end of today’s session, our abortion ban dies.

And by the end of this year, nearly 8,000 pre-born babies will die, too.

The Protection of Life bill, authored by Rep. Curt Nisly and co-authored by Rep. John Jacob, has been sitting on Rep. Jerry Torr’s desk for over a month, and yet, he never made time to grant this life saving legislation a hearing and a vote.

I’d expect a truly “pro-life” Rep. to make room on the docket for a bill which would end the slaughter of innocent pre-born babies.

Sadly, it seems Rep. Jerry Torr is picking up the torch from Rep. Ben Smaltz, who obeyed Planned Parenthood and killed Protection of Life legislation four years in a row.

Despite claiming to be pro-life, Rep. Jerry Torr REFUSED to hear HB 1539 and buried it instead.

Our elected officials are not representing us well, my friend.

We have made it clear: we want our Representatives to do their jobs and end abortion in Indiana once and for all.

But the Republican Establishment is downright scared of voting on hard hitting pro-life legislation.

They don’t want you to know where they really stand.

An all out ban on legalized child killing is not the only bill that has the Establishment quaking in their boots.

They also panicked when Rep. Nisly filed an amendment to strengthen HB 1577 and ban chemical abortion pills in Indiana.

Rep. Peggy Mayfield, author of HB 1577, was even reportedly considering killing her own bill in order to avoid a roll call vote on Nisly’s amendment.

Once Hoosiers for Life supporters called Peggy though, she pivoted away from killing HB 1577, and instead, collaborated with Establishment cronies to ensure her bill could move forward without being strengthened.

Rep. Nisly also filed an amendment to the budget which stated legislators would not receive their paychecks until they voted on abortion ban legislation, and Rep. Jacob filed a personhood amendment.

The Establishment Republicans did NOT want to vote on any of these.

House Speaker Todd Huston called a Republican caucus meeting, and even though Rep. Nisly and Rep. Jacob are Republicans, they were not allowed to attend.

After all, how can the swamp strategize on how to defeat Nisly’s and Jacob’s amendments if the two men are in the room?

Establishment politicians are working harder than ever to avoid going on the record with their views on ending legalized child killing.

Pro-life supporters in Indiana deserve to know where our elected officials really stand on saving all babies from the horror of abortion.

But the political class is afraid for you to find out.

That’s why House Speaker Todd Huston played school yard bully to ensure there would be no vote on Rep. Nisly’s and Rep. Jacob’s strong pro-life amendments (read details about Huston’s shenanigans here).

And it’s why Rep. Jerry Torr ignored phone calls and emails to grant HB 1539 a hearing and a vote.

We can’t let them get away with dooming Hoosier babies to death by abortion. We must hold our elected officials accountable to their pro-life promises!

Rep. Jerry Torr and House Speaker Todd Huston need to hear from you today.
