Gregg selects pro-abortion Vi Simpson as running mate
May 22, 2012
Indiana gubernatorial candidate John Gregg officially announced today that he has selected Vi Simpson of Bloomington to run for lieutenant governor on the Democrat ticket. Simpson, who is widely recognized as one of the most strident abortion supporters in the Indiana legislature, has compiled a 6% voting record on pro-life legislation during her time in the Senate.
In 1997, Simpson was one of only a handful of Indiana legislators who voted against a ban on the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure that involves plunging surgical scissors into the base of the skull of a fully-alive baby that is removed from the birth canal except for the head.
Simpson has also voted against informed consent for women considering abortion, against requiring that women be informed about the availability of ultrasound imaging, against requiring licensing and inspection standards for Indiana abortion clinics, against a ban on public facilities and employees doing abortions, and the list goes on.
In 1993, Simpson was also one of a handful of legislators voting against a ban on assisted suicide.
“Vi Simpson is a proponent of unrestricted abortion for the full nine months of pregnancy, and even up to the process of birth as in the sickening partial-birth abortion procedure ,” states Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter. “Mr. Gregg could not have selected a more radical running mate than Vi Simpson.”
