Mike Braun for Senate Endorsed by Indiana Right to Life PAC

October 4, 2018

Braun Must Replace Donnelly Who Has Betrayed Pro-life Hoosiers

 

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Right to Life Political Action Committee (PAC) announces its endorsement of Republican Mike Braun for U.S. Senate over Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly. Chairman of the Indiana Right to Life PAC, Mike Fichter, provided the following statement:

“Joe Donnelly tells Indiana voters he’s pro-life, but the abortion lobby and Democratic leadership know he’s a reliable pro-abortion vote in the U.S. Senate. Donnelly votes to fund abortion providers, like Planned Parenthood, with our taxpayer dollars. Not only is Planned Parenthood Indiana’s largest abortion business, but its employees have been caught on tape flippantly discussing the harvesting and sale of baby body parts. Donnelly is so callous towards what Hoosiers want, that he even announced he will oppose President Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.

“Indiana Right to Life PAC is pleased there is a solidly pro-life alternative to Joe Donnelly on November’s ballot. Indiana Right to Life PAC proudly endorses Mike Braun for U.S. Senate. Hoosiers deserve a senator who is with them 100 percent of the time. Mike takes a solid stand on pro-life issues and he will be a dependable voice for life in the U.S. Senate.”

State Applauded for Appealing Judge’s Recommendation on Proposed Abortion Site in South Bend

October 2, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Right to Life’s President and CEO, Mike Fichter, issued the following statement upon learning the state of Indiana has appealed an administrative judge’s recommendation on the proposed abortion facility in South Bend, Ind. By appealing, Whole Woman’s Health Alliance (WWHA) will remain without an abortion license to operate in South Bend, but the legal battle will continue.

“We applaud the state of Indiana for continuing the legal effort to prevent an abortion business from opening in South Bend. We encourage the state to vigorously defend its denial of the license. Activist courts should not be overriding the state’s right to make licensing decisions.”

The State of Indiana denied WWHA’s application for an abortion license in January. The denial letter stated: “Based upon the Department’s review, the Commissioner finds WWHA failed to meet the requirement that the Applicant is of reputable and responsible character and the supporting documentation provided inaccurate statements and information.” Last month, Indianapolis-based administrative law judge, Clare Deitchman, sided with WWHA in their bid to open a new abortion facility and recommended they receive an abortion license.

Donnelly Shows True Colors by Announcing “No” Vote on Kavanaugh, Sides with Abortion Lobby

September 28, 2018

Fichter: “Hoosiers will remember Donnelly’s betrayal of his constituents at the ballot box.”

WASHINGTON – Indiana Right to Life Political Action Committee (PAC) Chairman Mike Fichter issued the following statement upon Sen. Joe Donnelly’s (D-IN) announcement that he will vote against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh:

“Sen. Joe Donnelly is showing his true colors by announcing he is a ‘no’ vote on U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Donnelly is listening to the Democratic party’s far-left leadership, like Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein, and the abortion lobby instead of Hoosiers.

“Polling shows the majority of Hoosiers want the Senate to confirm the choice of pro-life President Donald Trump. It was an opening on the Supreme Court that brought so many Hoosiers out on Election Day 2016, and Hoosiers will again show up this November when Donnelly is on the ballot. Hoosiers will remember Donnelly’s betrayal of his constituents at the ballot box.”

Pro-life Community Pleased Indiana Will Appeal Dignity for the Unborn Law to Supreme Court

September 24, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – The “Los Angeles Times” reported on Friday that the State of Indiana plans to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the 2016 Dignity for the Unborn Law. The law prohibits abortions for the sole reasons of the child’s race, sex, national origin or a potential disability, like Down syndrome.

The report stated, “Indiana last week told the high court that the state plans to appeal the lower court’s decision while asking for additional time to file its petition.”

The 2016 Dignity for the Unborn Law, signed by then-Governor Mike Pence, was blocked by a lawsuit brought by Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The Dignity for the Unborn Law deals with more than just discriminatory abortions. The law prohibits abortion businesses from treating the remains of unborn child as common medical waste. It also contains a provision that gives a woman seeking an abortion the opportunity to view an ultrasound of her unborn child at least 18 hours prior to an abortion. These portions of the law were also blocked by lawsuits brought by PPINK and the ACLU.

“On behalf of unborn children and women, we extend our thanks to Attorney General Curtis Hill and the State of Indiana for bringing the Dignity for the Unborn Law all the way to the Supreme Court,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “We urge the Supreme Court to take up this case. We cannot fathom that the high court will agree with Planned Parenthood’s arguments that it is constitutional to target unborn children for abortion because of their sex, race or a Down syndrome diagnosis.

Indiana Right to Life statement on WWHA ruling

September 14, 2018

Judge Sides with Abortion Chain Trying to Open in South Bend
INDIANAPOLIS – An administrative judge has ruled in favor of Texas-based abortion chain, Whole Woman’s Health Alliance (WWHA), which is trying to open an abortion facility in South Bend. In January, WWHA appealed the decision of the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) to reject WWHA’s application for an Indiana abortion license.
The application denial letter from the ISDH to the abortion organization stated, “Based upon the Department’s review, the Commissioner finds WWHA failed to meet the requirement that the Applicant is of reputable and responsible character and the supporting documentation provided inaccurate statements and information.”
Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life, issued the following statement: “Without an abortion facility for more than two years, abortions on St. Joseph County women are dramatically down according to state reports. But if Whole Woman’s Health Alliance starts doing abortions as a result of this judicial decision, we anticipate thousands of lives will be lost to abortion. Thankfully, this decision does not have to be the end of the fight. We urge the State Department of Health to appeal this decision and protect innocent, human lives in South Bend.”
Jackie Appleman, Executive Director of St. Joseph County Right to Life, issued this statement: “St. Joseph County Right to Life is disappointed that Judge Deitchman’s recommended ruling does not uphold the Indiana State Department of Health’s denial of WWHA’s application for license. We trust that the ISDH will exercise due diligence in appealing this decision. Our community has shown that women in South Bend don’t need abortion. Those facing unplanned or difficult pregnancies can get all the help they need to provide for their unique physical, emotional, and spiritual needs without WWHA.”
Indiana Right to Life and St. Joseph County Right to Life generated over 36,000 e-mails from concerned citizens since WWHA’s application for a South Bend abortion facility first surfaced in October.
