Indiana Right to Life group meets here

(Continued)

The law Fichter spoke of was the pro-life bill that Gov. Mike Pence signed into law on May 1. He signed Senate Bill 371, a bill that toughens regulations for chemical abortion businesses while dramatically improving Indiana’s informed consent provisions.

Fichter says the number of abortions has been cut in half over the last five years, but 62 percent of the abortions that happen in the state are performed in Marion County.

“That equates to 5,418 children who lose their lives,” he said. “The majority of those abortions happen at the Planned Parenthood Mega Center on 86th (Street) and Georgetown (Road). We’ve estimated they do 3,500 to 4,000 abortions every year.”

Fichter announced that Indiana Right to Life is partnering with a women’s care center that will be built adjacent to the Planned Parenthood Center.

“We are partnering with them in building this center directly across from the largest abortion center in the state,” he said. “We want to better reach those women with positive alternatives to abortion.”

Indiana Right to Life’s outreaches include LifeFest, a teen outreach designed to challenge teens to respect life, and innovative approaches to educate voters as to where candidates for public office stand on life issues. Other outreaches include free E-Mail Lifeline update service, Lifeline Report state newsletter, Sanctity of Human Life Sunday promotion (January), Teens for Life publication, Teens for Life website, LifeFest youth events, and radio and television ads to promote crisis pregnancy assistance.

Indiana Right to Life is represented by county-level affiliates around the state. The group is funded by donations from individuals and private foundations.
