Hoosiers Vote to Send Strong Pro-life Senator to Washington

November 7, 2018

Mike Braun Will Be Dependable Voice for Women and the Unborn  

INDIANAPOLIS – Mike Braun is the winner in Indiana’s U.S. Senate race, unseating incumbent Joe Donnelly. Indiana Right to Life President and CEO, Mike Fichter, gave the following statement:

“The pro-life community felt betrayed by Donnelly, who frequently took positions demanded by the abortion lobby. Unlike Donnelly, senator-elect Mike Braun will stand for our pro-life values in Washington. Indiana is a pro-life state. We’re showing it by having two dependable pro-life voices, Mike Braun and Todd Young, represent us in the U.S. Senate. We look forward to working with Braun to protect children from abortion.”

Seven pro-life individuals will represent Hoosiers in the U.S. House of Representatives. Winning their races are Jackie Walorski (IN -2), Jim Banks (IN-3), Jim Baird (IN-4), Susan Brooks (IN-5), Greg Pence (IN-6), Larry Bucshon (IN-8) and Trey Hollingsworth (IN-9).

The pro-life community is also pleased to see pro-life individuals return to state offices and a pro-life majority return to the General Assembly.

Most Pro-Abortion President in History Hits Campaign Trail for Donnelly

November 1, 2018

Obama Will Stump for Joe Donnelly in Gary on Sunday
Gary, Ind. – Former President Barack Obama, who has the most pro-abortion record of any U.S. President, will campaign for Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) on Sunday in Gary. Indiana Right to Life Political Action Committee Chairman, Mike Fichter, issued the following statement:

“Senator Joe Donnelly is not your ‘average Joe.’ He does not represent average Hoosiers who oppose abortion. Joe Donnelly has claimed to be ‘pro-life’ but his voting record shows otherwise. Now the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history, Barack Obama, will hit the campaign trail for Joe Donnelly. Obama expanded abortion through his signature healthcare law, undid the prohibition on foreign promotion of abortions with U.S. tax dollars, and appointed pro-abortion justices to the Supreme Court. It’s easy to see Donnelly is more closely-aligned with the pro-abortion extremists in the Democratic Party than with Hoosier voters.”

Indiana Right to Life PAC works to elect pro-life candidates to public office for the purpose of enacting public policy that protects the right to life of all persons, including the unborn. Indiana Right to Life PAC believes that the issue of life is paramount to all other issues because without the right to life, all other freedoms are without meaning.

A Special Message about Tuesday

November 1, 2018

A special message from Mike Fichter, President and CEO, Indiana Right to Life:

Chances are you’ve never heard the fascinating story of Indiana’s Barton Mitchell. Originally from Huntington County, Mitchell’s final resting place is in Hartsville, just south of Columbus. He’s all but forgotten to just about everyone except followers of history, but Barton Mitchell, through a series of unexpected circumstances, found himself at the center of one of the most fascinating stories of the American Civil War.

In September 1862, Robert E Lee made a critical decision to move Confederate forces North to give battle to the Union forces somewhere on the outskirts of Washington DC.. Lee’s strategy was to take the war to the north to relieve pressure from the Confederate capital of Richmond, and to place the Union in a defensive mode around Washington. As part of his overall strategy, Lee gambled by separating his forces. To ensure subordinates understood the overall strategy, Lee dictated Special Order 191, outlining, in detail, his entire plan.

Lee delineated the plan to surprise Union forces, including the top secret routes and roads to be taken and the timing for the invasion of Harpers Ferry. Staff officers distributed copies of the order to various Confederate generals. Then, about noon on September 13, Barton Mitchell, of the 27th Indiana Volunteers, discovered an envelope with three cigars wrapped in a piece of paper at a campground Confederates had just vacated. It was Special Order 191.

Mitchell’s discovery soon landed in the hands of Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan, the commander of the Army of the Potomac, who was overcome with glee at learning planned Confederate troop movements. He reportedly exclaimed, “Here is a paper with which, if I cannot whip Bobby Lee, I will be willing to go home.”

Barton Mitchell from Indiana had presented General McClellan with the entire Confederate game plan for the movement that ultimately resulted in the Battle of Antietam, known to most as the bloodiest day of American military history.

In much the same way, abortion supporters have a game plan unfolding in Indiana and across the nation, and their intent is as clear as if we were holding their own brand of Special Order 191 in our hands today. While I will detail some of their plans in upcoming columns, there is one you must know about today.

Abortion supporters are banking on frustration, anger, division and apathy to keep you home November 6. They want us to believe the system is broken, our votes really don’t matter, and their pre-election polling proves we are a lost cause in the eyes of most Americans.

Don’t believe it for one minute.

On November 6, your vote, and the votes of your friends and family, represents what abortion supporters fear the most-the real voice of real people.

Barton Mitchell fought at Antietam as part of a war to define who, and what, we would be as a nation. This November 6, we’ll all be going to the polls to make the same kind of statement.

Please exercise your power and freedom to vote.

Mike Braun for Senate Endorsed by Indiana Right to Life PAC

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.”
