WOWO Exclusive: Banks pens letter to Gov. Holcomb on Dobbs SCOTUS decision

Governor Holcomb:

I’m hopeful that the Indiana statehouse will use the upcoming July 6 special session to pass a state-wide ban on abortion, and I am urging you to sign such pro-life legislation as soon as it passes.

In the nearly 50 years since Roe, over 63 million babies have been aborted in the United States. Over 7,000 babies are aborted in Indiana alone every year. We can finally change that, but every day that passes without legislative action means more lost unborn Hoosier lives.

Following the historic Dobbs Supreme Court decision, 15 states already have laws in place that categorically ban abortion. Indiana can soon be the 16th.

I’m proud of the fact that Indiana is one of the most pro-life states in the country. In recent years, we’ve passed important legislation to protect women and the unborn, including bills banning sex selective abortions, banning abortion after five months, and more. Now, we can end abortion once and for all.

The Dobbs decision gives power back to the states, which means that we can finally obey the will of the people and end this evil practice that has stained our country for nearly half a century.

Our nation is in a critical moment, and I remain hopeful that Indiana’s legislators, many of whom I know and have worked with, will do the right thing in making our state a leader in ending abortion.

We should have had a trigger law ready to go before the SCotUS decision was handed down. Now we are behind the curve. I am embarrassed that my state wasn’t one of the first to be ready to ban the atrocity of abortion.

Just say NO to baby-killing — ALWAYS

waiting period sounds good to me. If gun buyers exercising they plainly written constitutional right have to endure waiting periods why not a person contemplating the death of a baby? Ultra sounds should be demanded. A high percentage of expectant mothers, when they view their baby by ultra sound decide, make a choice, to keep it. Maybe for the small percentage determined to kill the baby we could offer as a society to pay for the expense of keeping it and they adopt it out. I have 4 adopted grand kids. They are as dear to me as my natural born grand kids.

Agree a trigger law should have been in place. But the special session gives The People through their elected representatives to correct their error. In a Republic those who cannot protect themselves must be protected. They didn’t ask to be conceived. The are totally innocent. The “peaceful” rioters of Moloch cannot be allowed to influence the rest of us. Moloch was a biblical era false god. He was a large statue with a hole in the belly where a fire was placed to burn the sacrifice of infants. There are no statues but the false god is still worshiped at planned parenthood and by the mobocracy running wild in the streets.
