|A Special Kind of Sickness
The corrupting nature of abortion is something almost no one in the media, and no one in the political arena supportive of the procedure, dare discuss. If there is anything positive at all about the bizarre story of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer it is that it pulls the sanitary veil off this horrible industry.
On Friday, 165 more bodies of aborted babies were found in a Mercedes Benz owned by the late abortionist who operated clinics in Gary, Fort Wayne and South Bend, Indiana. These bodies were all from abortions that occurred in 2002. The image of an abortionist keeping thousands of fetal remains at his home is sick enough, but driving around in his car with nearly 200 more is a special kind of sickness.
That sickness must be contagious. An abortionist to our north, in Michigan, pleaded “no contest” two years ago to multiple felony charges that included having 14 aborted babies in his car.
Two years prior to the conviction of abortionist Michael Roth, about the same time he was arrested, another abortionist in Michigan, speaking to the National Abortion Federation callously told her audience of her suggestion about what to do with fetal remains. Renee Chelian was caught on videosaying, “We thought we’ll give it [the fetal remains] to everybody in a gift bag, they can take it home, figure out what to do with it. It’s their pregnancy – why is this our problem? And I’m saying that in all seriousness.”
The total known number of unborn children Klopfer kept for years is now up to 2,411.
Do Those on the Left Only Support “Choice” When it Harms Children?
Last week a candidate for Indiana Governor proposed ending Indiana’s school voucher program and giving the money used for vouchers to public schools to boost teacher salaries. Democrat Josh Owens, a 34-year-old Butler University professor, also suggested using another $300 million in state reserves for teacher salaries.
Indiana is home to one of the nation’s largest school voucher programs. About 3% of Indiana students (35,000) use vouchers. The program is designed for low-income families, giving them the ability to choose a private school that otherwise would not be an option for them.
I don’t know what Owens’ view of abortion is, but pro-life Democrats running for office are extremely rare. (Can you name even one?) Those who do support abortion strongly tend to also support government funding for low income women wanting to abort their child. Yet, a low-income, single mom in Indiana wanting to choose what she believes will improve the life of her child . . . well that’s just too bad.
EdChoice, a national school choice advocacy organization based in Indianapolis, said the conversation about K-12 education in Indiana should focus on finding “more options for students, not fewer.”
“Hard-working Hoosier families shouldn’t be tossed around like a political football for trying to find the right schooling option for their kids,” said Jennifer Wagner, an EdChoice spokeswoman. “Our state has a robust choice environment … That’s a thing we should celebrate, not disparage, especially when so many families are utilizing choice beyond the voucher program.”
Wagner is right . . . but political footballs are now the name of the game in election politics today. . . pitting one group against another for political gain is all many candidates now know when it comes to campaigning.
