There were dozens of accidents on the US 20 bypass and when the police barricaded the entrances, trying to shut off traffic, there were several reports of people getting out, moving the barricades and getting on the ice rink to drive! Unbelievable. In the midst of traffic accidents everywhere, our Emergency Responders do what they always do...their best to protect all of us, even the wild ones who insist on driving in treacherous conditions.
I'll bet some legislator will have a new law, ready for the books, about driving around barricades in emergencies! Just kidding. It's just another example of the inability to legislate common sense..even if it means saving lives or saving us from ourselves!
A huge thank you to every responder who risked their lives to save dozens of Hoosiers.

At midnight last night, another video tape was released, this time showing the same girl talking to two different Planned Parenthood employees, this time at an Indianapolis Clinic. The answers the girl received were virtually identical...cover up the crime, get an out of state abortion and circumvent Indiana's laws and leave a sexual abuser lose to commit another crime.
Seeing these events occur at two different locations in Indiana and seeing 3 different employees react in virtually the same manner, showing a blatant disregard for all Indiana laws pertaining to protecting minors from sexual abuse, today, I called for the "defunding" of Planned Parenthood of Indiana.
Attorney General Steve Carter is investigating the Planned Parenthood allegations and I asked him to now widen that investigation and also look into the possibility of Medicaid fraud. Today, I also asked FSSA Secretary to immediately cease the distribution of all tax payer funds, including Medicaid Reimbursement dollars, to Indiana Planned Parenthood. As an agency contracted to do business in Indiana and receive Medicaid dollars, they should be held accountable for upholding all State laws that pertain to them.
This story has flown into the national spotlight because of the blatant disregard for Indiana's law regarding the protection of minors. I believe, that irregardless of your view of the pro-life/pro-choice question, this is now a matter of public safety. We have to commit to protecting young women in this State.
You can check out these appalling videos on my website. www.jackiewalorski.com It's time to stand up and bring this type of contempt and blatant disregard for the law to an end.
Last week I asked Atty. General Steve Carter for a full investigation of this agency. Today, I am asking Carter and FSSA Secretary Mitch Roob to suspend Indiana Planned Parenthood's funding until a complete investigation into Medicaid fraud can be completed. If this agency isn't complying with State laws and yet receiving millions of tax dollars, there should be an investigation.
More importantly, I hope that Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi will investigate this since there was a cover up of a felony crime, caught on tape...now in Marion County. How many more counties and how many more girls, victims of sexual abuse, are caught in this trap? This second tape now appears to show a pattern of training for Planned Parenthood employees....cover up abuse, don't report a crime, send the young victims out of State. This is appalling.

Where has the State of Indiana drifted to, if we cannot stand up for the personal protection of our young women? Domestic violence in Indiana, and nationwide, is often unreported or under reported and claims thousands of women as victims. Here, caught on videotape, was yet another potential victim and thousands of Hoosiers are standing by silently as this kind of crime is covered up.
I hope, during this Season when we are celebrating life, we add common sense, "personal protection for young Hoosiers" to our list of things we are praying for. Wake up Hoosiers...this catastrophe at Planned Parenthood is symbolic of anyone and everyone's daughter.
