County Council endorses a drastic increase in abortions

Note: This was written by CCFL board member Scott Tibbs, and represents his opinions, not necessarily those of Christian Citizens For Life. Despite the fact that abortions in the state of Indiana declined by 8.5% statewide from 2015 to 2016, the Planned Parenthood "clinic" in Bloomington performed 23.6% more abortions last year than the year before. Planned Parenthood murdered 822 babies in 2015, and then murdered 1,016 babies in 2016. The Monroe County Council is perfectly fine with this, again giving thousands of dollars forcibly confiscated from taxpayers to a wicked and bloodthirsty organization that is killing far more babies than before. We knew that the corporate welfare scheme was always going to pass by a 6-1 margin, so it was overkill for Planned Parenthood volunteers in their pink shirts to fill the council meeting room. I arrived early, and was quickly surrounded on all sides by PP volunteers. Why the show of force for a grant Planned Parenthood does not need,

Planned Parenthood should not get our tax money

Note: CCFL board member Scott Tibbs sent the following letter to the members of the Monroe County Council. Councilors, Can we please be done with the lie that abortion is a tiny part of what Planned Parenthood does? While abortion opponents are celebrating a steep overall drop in abortions statewide, that is not the case in Monroe County. There were 822 abortions in Monroe County in 2015. There were 1,016 abortions in Monroe County in 2016. That is a 23.6% increase. Overall, 194 more babies lost their lives in Monroe County last year than the year before. Furthermore, only 232 of the 1,016 abortions in Monroe County were performed on Monroe County women. Bloomington is the regional abortion mill for all of southern Indiana. The number of abortions is unprecedented. The largest number we have had since 2001 was 855 abortions in 2008, and 2016 leaves that number in the dust. On average, that is 19.5 abortions every week, just a few blocks south of the county courthouse. It is abunda
