‘Protect all innocent life by love and law’

What National Right To Life has done in Cleveland, Ohio, should offend everyone in the pro-life community. Disowning its Cleveland chapter for taking a stand against Republican Sen. Rob Portman’s recent support for gay marriage is appalling.

It has officially disqualified itself from defending life and family values. It has become nothing more than the pro-life arm of the Republican Party, which has done nothing to end the slaughter of 3,000 to 4,000 babies every day for the last 40 years.

Except for a complete apology to the pro-life community, and commitment to protecting every single human life by love and by law, every local chapter should separate itself from what has become an immoral organization. All contributors should find a better place to put their money. There are a few committed to protecting all innocent life.

No more exceptions, no more regulations, no more compromise. Abolish human abortion. Protect all innocent life by love and by law.

Listen to the people and their concerns

As we push forward to put new language into the comprehensive plan for Tipton County, I would like to believe we would all stop and review what the BZA just ruled.

First, it seems to me we should take inventory and ask those with a predisposition — or, in the common term being used, conflict of interest — to recuse themselves!

Not to pick on anyone, but Mr. Mark Noble recused himself from the BZA meeting March 20. Mark is a turbine leaseholder and did the proper thing by doing this. I believe we have others on the planning board who need to look at their family ties.

With so many issues on wind energy, I would hope we send a resounding message that any further interest of wind energy in Tipton County would meet with strict rules to protect the people and the county we live in. Do they want wind energy at all?
