Bloomington Herald-Times, January 06, 2011
To the Editor:
On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court threw out state laws against abortion, opening the floodgates to a bloodbath that is unprecedented in human history. Thirty eight years later, fifty million unborn children have been butchered by America's abortion industry.
There is a lot of discussion about politicians "working together" to get things done. How can we find common ground on abortion? Where is the common ground between life and death? There can be none. There are only two choices, separated by a wide gulf. There is no middle ground between allowing murder and banning it.
Most shameful is that the Democrats on both the Bloomington City Council and the Monroe County Council have decided to give thousands of dollars of our taxes to Planned Parenthood, America's #1 abortion provider which reported over $1 billion in revenue and a profit of $85 million in their fiscal report. The Democrats should be ashamed of themselves.
Proverbs 24:11-12 commands us to "rescue those being led away to death." Please send the message that abortion is not welcome in a safe and civil city by attending the 2011 Rally for Life on Sunday, January 23 at 2:00 pm at the Monroe County Courthouse.
