If you want to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves, you are invited to participate in the next 40 Days for Life campaign, taking place Feb. 13 through March 24 in front of Planned Parenthood Indianapolis, 8590 Georgetown Road, where the majority of abortions in Indiana take place. 40 Days for Life is a community-based campaign that takes a determined, peaceful approach to showing local communities that there is a better choice than abortion for a mother and her unborn child.
The campaign relies on a three-point program of prayer and fasting, peaceful vigil, and community outreach. Please visit www.40daysforlife.com/indianapolis for additional information.
Let us all stand together as people of different creeds and colors, beliefs and affiliations, and voice support for love and protection of unborn babies and their moms.
To the Editor:
As you may know, public transportation has been brought to the forefront of debate in Central Indiana. The debate has primarily centered on the economic impact of a public transit system. It is true the economic impact of public transit can be great, but one must also consider the human impact of an inadequate, regional public transportation system.
Access to public transportation in Central Indiana is essential for people with disabilities to remain independent. We at Bosma Enterprises are dedicated to empowering people who are blind or visually impaired across Indiana to live independently and confidently - a difficult task to accomplish when there are very real challenges with the current transportation systems inside and outside of Marion County.
Many of our employees are dependent on public transportation to not only get to and from work but to conduct the daily business of life like going to the doctor, grocery store, attend church, or interact with people socially. IndyGo and other county transit organizations currently have a system for people who have disabilities to attempt to fill the gap, but those are not adequate to meet life's daily tasks.
