Stop funding a wicked, bloodthirsty abortion mill

Printed in the Bloomington Herald-Times, August 11, 2017

To the Editor:

Abortion is not a “small part” of what Planned Parenthood in Bloomington does. We need to put that myth to rest once and for all.

We have heard a lot about how abortions in Indiana are down, and how the “good” things Planned Parenthood does reduce the need for abortions. But the statistics from the Indiana Department of Health tell the truth.

There were 822 babies killed by abortion in Monroe County in 2015. There were 1,016 babies killed by abortion in Monroe County in 2016. This is a 23.6% increase, at a time when abortions statewide decreased by 8.5%. Less than a quarter of those abortions were done on Monroe County women.

This is why it is an abomination for the Monroe County Council to force us at gunpoint to subsidize this wicked, bloodthirsty organization. No, “at gunpoint” is not hyperbole. What do you think will happen if you do not pay your property taxes?

It is time for this farce to end. The council distributed $115,000.00 to social service agencies, but the total amount requested was $319,961.89. Of over $200,000 of requests denied, surely there was a more deserving organization, instead of an obscenely wealthy multinational corporation.
