Righteous indignation

Indiana Right to Life officials are outraged, according to the organization’s president.

What has the organization so angry? Could it be news of two more deaths in Indiana child-care settings? The fact that 31 children have died under the supervision of providers since 2009?

No, that’s not it. The anti-abortion group is angry that the Indiana Commission for Women honored Betty Cockrum, a former state budget director and current director of Planned Parenthood, with one of 14 Torchbearer awards.

“History will show this to be a tragic, embarrassing and foolish recognition by the state of Indiana,” Right to Life President Mike Fichter said Tuesday.

Perhaps, but let history show that Indiana’s record on ensuring the safety of infants and young children in the hands of child care operators also is tragic, embarrassing and foolish.
