Press Advisory: EMILY’s List backing of Indianapolis mayoral candidate raises potential for radical abortion policies
November 3, 2011
Indiana Right to Life today is raising concerns that the financial backing of Indianapolis mayoral candidate Melina Kennedy by the national pro-abortion organization EMILY’s List raises the likelihood that a Kennedy administration will adopt radical abortion policies that might include public funding for abortion and the promotion of abortion in the Indianapolis school system.
EMILY’s List is a Washington, D.C., based political organization that supports abortion for the full nine months of pregnancy without restriction. According to the Indianapolis Business Journal, EMILY’s List is one of Kennedy’s top financial supporters, funneling $10,000 in cash to her campaign.
Indianapolis is the state hub for Indiana’s abortion business with abortions currently being done in three abortion clinics and at Wishard hospital.
“If the city of Indianapolis adopts abortion policies backed by EMILY’s List, it will likely lead to a dramatic rise in the Indianapolis abortion rate and the flow of city tax dollars into the hands of abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood,” states Indiana Right to Life President and CEO. “Melina Kennedy should be forthright with Indianapolis voters and explain exactly how the big support she is raking in from EMILY’s List will impact her abortion policy. If she is willing to align herself with the nation’s most aggressively political abortion organization, the voters deserve to know why.”
