To the Editor:
What kind of a society refuses to provide basic legal protections to all of her citizens, especially the weakest and most helpless? That is the kind of society we have now, with unborn babies lacking basic legal protections.
Abortion is not health care. It is the willful, intentional termination of an innocent human life. The Bible tells us we are made in the image of God, which is why killing innocent people is prohibited.
Here in Monroe County, the outlook is bleak. Abortions dropped by 8.5% across the entire state of Indiana from 2015 to 2016, but the Planned Parenthood “clinic” in Bloomington performed an astonishing 23.6% more abortions than the year before. Planned Parenthood then proceeded to exterminate another 1065 babies in 2017 – an average of 20 per week. Our city council and county council continue to give thousands of dollars to this “clinic” every summer. This is an abomination.
Christian Citizens for Life will host the Rally for Life on January 20, 2019 at 2:00 p.m at the Monroe County Courthouse. Please stand with us to oppose this great evil, and bring diapers to donate to the Hannah Center and the Women’s Care Center.
