LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Woe to those who call evil good

I seldom quote scripture to make a point, but the abortion debate lends itself to God’s admonition of woe to those who call evil good and good evil.

The abortion mills defend death with “good” words like “choice,” “women’s reproductive rights,” and “family planning.” They accuse pro-life advocates of waging a war on women, though they can’t account for the women killed in that conflict. In contrast, approximately one-half of the 60 million babies slaughtered in America’s war on wee-ones are women, and their abortive mothers are forever scarred by the procedure.

Planned Parenthood calls us racists while targeting minorities for abortion. Consider that there are more African-American abortions than African-American live births in New York City.

An Indianapolis talking-head recently called abolitionists Nazis. Perhaps he forgets that the Nazis perpetrated the Jewish Holocaust, while pro-life abolitionists are actively opposing America’s Holocaust of the unborn.

In 2017, and again this year Indiana Rep. Ben Smaltz, House Speaker Brian Bosma’s hand-picked chair of the House Public Policy Committee, refused to give the Protection at Conception Bill a hearing or a vote, then insulted our intelligence with his “good” reasons for killing the bill.

Unfortunately for Smaltz, Rep. Tim Wesco spoke truthfully when he admitted that the Republicans were afraid that they might lose their super-majority if they pass the Protection at Conception Bill.

Sadly, Bosma and Smaltz sacrificed 8,000 Hoosier babies per year to protect their Republican super-majority.

I will let the reader decide if that is evil, but I for one find it despicable.
