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.

    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. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
