IU should stop trafficking baby parts

This is an open letter to Indiana University president Michael McRobbie from CCFL member Scott Tibbs.

Mr. McRobbie,

I saw that Indiana University has been successful in getting the courts to strike down parts of Indiana’s ban on trafficking aborted baby parts. I am not writing you to argue the decision or the law. I am writing you about right and wrong.

Abortion is wrong. It is the extermination of an innocent human being made in the image of God. Scripture tells us that when the nation of Israel was burning their babies in sacrifice to the demon Molech, it was an act of such great evil that it never even entered into the mind of God that they would do this. In our nation, we murder over a million babies every year, a bloodshed that is far worse than the child sacrifice of ancient Israel and her pagan neighbors. Then we use the corpses of these murder victims for “scientific research.”

Worse yet, the bloodshed is growing in Indiana University’s back yard. There were 822 babies murdered by abortion in Monroe County in 2015, but 2016 was far worse with 1,016 babies murdered by abortion. That is a 23% increase during a year when abortions declined overall statewide by 8%. In this “progressive” community that features a prestigious institution of higher learning, we are murdering our own children at a shocking rate. Indiana University should not benefit from this bloodshed for “scientific research.”

Mr. McRobbie, you have a position of civil authority in a state university because God placed you there. (See Romans 13.) Jesus told Pilate that he would have no authority if it had not been given to him from God, and the same is true with your office. You should then honor God with the civil authority He gave you by putting an end to the abomination of trafficking aborted baby parts.

This May will be twenty years since I graduated from Indiana University. On May 9, I would love to be able to point to my Alma Mater while swelling with pride about how I.U. abandoned unethical, gruesome experiments on the remains of murder victims. I sincerely hope you can make that happen. Thank you for your time.

Abortions in Monroe County

Do these numbers shock you?

Would it shock you more to learn that the Bloomington City Council has given a handout to our local abortion mill every year since 1999?

Would it shock you more to learn that the Monroe County Council has given a handout to our local abortion mill every year since 2009?

Please show that our community stands for life, and that we want this bloodshed to end.

End funding for "All Options"

CCFL member Scott Tibbs sent this letter to the Indianapolis Star in response to an attack on pro-life volunteers.

The rant by the Center Director of All-Options Pregnancy Resource Center in the October 31 Indianapolis Star should be all the evidence we need for why the Bloomington City Council and the Monroe County Council need to stop forcing taxpayers to fund this organization.

First of all, adding the word "care" after the word "abortion" does not make it caring. The procedure still results in a dead baby, and intentionally so. There is nothing less caring than killing a helpless innocent.

Second, Shelly Dodson demonstrated no "duplicity" from abortion opponents. In fact, abortion opponents have been up front and direct about our desire to repeal ObamaCare and protect unborn babies from the abortionists that "All Options" happily pays to kill those babies.

Third, the broad brush attack on anti-abortion lawmakers and protesters is both false and uncalled for. Yes, you can point to hypocrites in any issue, but it is simply false to claim that "the same protesters and lawmakers" seek abortions themselves. This is an absurd leap of logic, and the editorial standards of a reputable newspaper should not allow such a broad brush attack to be printed.

Dodson did successfully demonstrate how radical and politically motivated "All Options" actually is, and why this pro-abortion activist organization should not get a single penny of public funds from local government in Bloomington and Monroe County. This is not a harmless organization that merely provides diapers. This is a radical group that pushes a political agenda.

If the Bloomington City Council and Monroe County Council continue to fund this organization (and Planned Parenthood) then the state legislature should step in and prohibit this corporate welfare.
