Stand against abortion: Come to the 2012 Rally for Life

By Scott Tibbs, January 4, 2012

The question hovering over the sex abuse scandal at Penn State "University" is why no one intervened to stop the sexual abuse of young boys. Millions were angered and sickened when it was reported that someone walked in on a child being raped and did not step in to stop it.

Here in Bloomington, a young woman named Lauren Spierer vanished in the middle of the night. We do not know exactly what happened that night, but someone knows something. Why has someone not come forward to share the information and find her? Why make her parents suffer through Thanksgiving and Christmas without knowing what happened to their daughter?

It is easy for us to sit in judgment and say we would have done something to protect the victims at Penn State. It is easy for us to sit in judgment and say we would speak up if we knew what happened to Miss Spierer. But are we really any better?

Four blocks south of the Monroe County Courthouse, babies are murdered every Thursday by the abortionist at Planned Parenthood. There were 845 unborn babies killed in Monroe County in 2007 alone. (See http://www.in.gov/isdh/reports/itp/2007/tbl12.htm)

Yet most of us drive on by the "clinic" where these babies are killed by dismemberment for profit by this wicked tax-funded corporation, blissfully unaware of (or purposefully ignoring) the slaughter that goes on behind those dark grey walls. Who will stand up to Planned Parenthood and tell them to stop this wicked abomination in the eyes of God? Who will "rescue those being led away to death" as we are commanded to do in Proverbs 24:11-12?

2012 Rally for Life
When:Sunday, January 22, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.
Where: Monroe County Courthouse lawn
Why: To be a voice for the victims of abortion.

January 22 will be the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that threw out laws against abortion in all 50 states and opened the floodgates to a slaughter that is unprecedented in human history. Please join Christian Citizens for Life and IU Students for Life as we tell our community: No more killing.
