STOP CHARGING MONEY to print obituaries! sign now

Recently in some Indiana regions the Newspapers have stopped placing obituaries for free. There is now a costly fee to place an obituary and list the family members who remain and those who have passed on before. This is pure discrimination and yet one more way for the poor to be told they are less important. Anyone and everyone who has lived on this earth and dealt with its ways deserves an honorable farewell. Not just a DEATH NOTICE! A decent obituary is the least that can be done ( and has been done for year until now!). Please sign to help us stop newspapers charging $ to place obituaries!!!

    We have the same problem in Louisiana too. Corporate pigs are willing to do anything to make a buck these days.

    I think it is really wrong for the newspaper to charge for a obit..Its just greedy of the newspaper and the people who work there,...The people have enough to worry about why add the cost of a obit.....Isn't the families suffering enough,...This world is

    My mother died in 1999 in Utah and I also had to deal with that issue. It is just sickening.

    Absolutely rediculous and greedy! If this is not changed I will cancel my subscription and take USA Today or Indy Star. There is not much to this paper anyway. You raised the price and added so much more advertisements. Why should I pay for all the ad

    I know that in newspapers, space is money, but there are a few sacred things in life, one of them being death, and not everything is subject to the laws of capitalism, so suck it up and sell your adds at higher prices if youre really hurting for the money

    Rather than charging for obits., why not charge for engagement, wedding and anniversary announcements instead. These usually take up more space than the old std. obituaries. People wouldn't mind paying for these near as much as for the obituaries. Please

    I think it stinks that you are charging for the obituary. I also found out that you are able to get the paid obituary into the paper at a later time then the non-paid one. Sounds like alot of greed is going around these days!!

    to make people who are greaving over the loss of a loved one pay for an obituary is very wrong. How can these people look at themselves in the mirror?
