Indiana Right to Life Launches Petition to Rescind Award to Planned Parenthood CEO
March 19, 2014
The text of the petition reads:
I am writing to request that the Indiana Commission for Women rescind the Torchbearer Award recently given to the CEO of Indiana’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood’s Betty Cockrum. Ms. Cockrum’s management of an organization that annually kills over five thousand unborn children is offensive and not representative of Hoosier values.
The fact that Planned Parenthood is currently engaged in litigation against the state of Indiana, and that previous litigation by Planned Parenthood has cost the state millions of dollars in legal fees, adds emphasis to the objectionable nature of this award.
Please rescind the Torchbearer Award given to Ms. Cockrum immediately.
The petition is available for signing on Indiana Right to Life’s website: www.irtl.org/icw.
Indiana Right to Life’s mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children, through positive education, compassionate advocacy and promotion of healthy alternatives to abortion.
