Horrible crime cries out for stern justice

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9, AV).

Evil walks among us. Some stories make you cry; some make you throw up. The story out of Greene County does both.

These animals should be put down as the mad dogs they are. Any psychobabblist or defense attorney who tries to blame their incomprehensibly depraved planning and actions on a “deprived childhood” or “insanity” should be put down with them.

“The voice of [Katelyn’s] blood crieth unto [God] from the ground.” (Genesis 4:10, adapted).

She deserves justice. Only an equally depraved “system” would deny it.

Confused about groups’ merger

Can someone help me to understand, please?

If Planned Parenthood of Indiana combines with Planned Parenthood of Kentucky, doesn’t that mean that my state (not federal) taxes that I pay to the State of Indiana will now be going to help Kentucky fund a non-governmental institution that the courts are forcing the State of Indiana to help fund? (You would be hard pressed to convince me that the courts are not forcing this funding when every time the State of Indiana cuts said funding, Planned Parenthood immediately goes to court to have said funding restored.)

The only reason that I can see for the merger of the two affiliates is because Kentucky needs the money from Indiana to expand their clinics. Excuse me, but let the State of Kentucky and the people of Kentucky expand their own clinics. I don’t want my money that the State of Indiana is forced to spend at Planned Parenthood going to Kentucky.

Leave Indiana money in Indiana to solve Indiana’s own problems and let Kentucky take care of itself.
