IBJ Letters To The Editor

Congratulations are due Gov. Daniels and the Indiana Legislature for taking action to suspend public dollars to “family planning” organizations who perpetuate the continuing slaughter of the tiniest, most innocent human beings.

Today, there are websites where the handiwork of the butchers who perform these “family-planning activities” can be viewed. Many are too squeamish to actually see what the result of this “family planning” is on the innocent human fetus.

Many in minority communities fight the death penalty because they say it is “racist.” Just look at the statistics as to whom it is that is killed, they say. Yet they tolerate and vote for those who allow for the continuing slaughter of mostly minority fetuses. What will it take to end this barbarism?

It takes real courage to actually call attention to the continuing slaughter which “moderates” and “liberals” continue to defend in the name of “choice.” Thank God our governor and Legislature had the courage to say “no” to public funding. The fight to stop the barbarism has only begun.

  • Not My Man Mitch
    Of course the fact that virtually nothing in Mr. Sorg's letter is true doesn't stop him, and people like him, from repeating it.

    To be clear, abortion funding wasn't cut off. That money is mostly donated. Women who need those services can still get them.

    However, money was cut-off for contraception, HIV and STD detection and treatment, cancer screening and such. I don't see how Mr. Sorg can take pride in that.

    What's more Doctors are required to tell patients information that isn't medically correct.

    Daniels should be ashamed that he had any part of this travesty. He pandered to the most conservative voters... just so that he could make amends for calling for a truce on social issues.
  • Oh yes, PTL!
    PTL, because I witness so many couples in Carmel, Zionsville, Fishers,Brownsburg, etc that have adopting minority children!

    Perhaps Mr. Sorg is correct, though. If we had prevented all those abortions over the past forty years from happening, our Democratic constituency would be so much larger! Perhaps Indiana would be a blue state rather than red!

    Yes, the fight has begun and perhaps Mr Sorg and his type will win. But the simple minded rarely are able to extrapolate out the consequences over time of their simplified notions of the world. Therefore, be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.

    I would be interested to know if Mr Sorg's end-of-life care notions are in line with his start-of-life notions. For the babyboomers, that is what should frighten you!

  1. I am not by any means judging whether this is a good or bad project. It's pretty simple, the developers are not showing a hardship or need for this economic incentive. It is a vacant field, the easiest for development, and the developer already has the money to invest $26 million for construction. If they can afford that, they can afford to pay property taxes just like the rest of the residents do. As well, an average of $15/hour is an absolute joke in terms of economic development. Get in high paying jobs and maybe there's a different story. But that's the problem with this ask, it is speculative and users are just not known.

  2. Shouldn't this be a museum

  3. I don't have a problem with higher taxes, since it is obvious that our city is not adequately funded. And Ballard doesn't want to admit it, but he has increased taxes indirectly by 1) selling assets and spending the money, 2) letting now private entities increase user fees which were previously capped, 3) by spending reserves, and 4) by heavy dependence on TIFs. At the end, these are all indirect tax increases since someone will eventually have to pay for them. It's mathematics. You put property tax caps ("tax cut"), but you don't cut expenditures (justifiably so), so you increase taxes indirectly.

  4. Marijuana is the safest natural drug grown. Addiction is never physical. Marijuana health benefits are far more reaching then synthesized drugs. Abbott, Lilly, and the thousands of others create poisons and label them as medication. There is no current manufactured drug on the market that does not pose immediate and long term threat to the human anatomy. Certainly the potency of marijuana has increased by hybrids and growing techniques. However, Alcohol has been proven to destroy more families, relationships, cause more deaths and injuries in addition to the damage done to the body. Many confrontations such as domestic violence and other crimes can be attributed to alcohol. The criminal activities and injustices that surround marijuana exists because it is illegal in much of the world. If legalized throughout the world you would see a dramatic decrease in such activities and a savings to many countries for legal prosecutions, incarceration etc in regards to marijuana. It indeed can create wealth for the government by collecting taxes, creating jobs, etc.... I personally do not partake. I do hope it is legalized throughout the world.

  5. Build the resevoir. If built this will provide jobs and a reason to visit Anderson. The city needs to do something to differentiate itself from other cities in the area. Kudos to people with vision that are backing this project.
