In today’s political climate, many headlines focus on the inefficiencies of Washington, D.C. Often, too much arguing and lack of compromise leads to a political stalemate, and Americans are the ones losing. Here in Indiana, that is not the case. State lawmakers come to work with the same priority day after day: putting Hoosiers first and setting aside politics to create good policy.
A few weeks ago at rallies in our nation’s capital and around the country, people came together to stand for the unborn during March for Life. An important part of defending the right to life is to encourage communities to have resources in place to help expectant mothers who may be struggling and face difficult decisions. One way our state is protecting life is through the use of its Safe Haven Law and Safe Haven Baby Boxes.
It’s easy to take for granted the men and women who respond at a moment’s notice to emergencies in order to keep us safe. We are very fortunate in our community to have professional first responders who protect us, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Let’s take a moment to support our first responders and thank them for the sacrifices they make on our behalf.
