Attorney General Mike DeWine Leads Nation to Protect Pain-Capable Babies

Pro-Life Attorney General Files Briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, Attorney General Mike DeWine filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court to defend Arizona's pain-capable abortion ban in the case of Horne v. Isaacson. Fifteen other states have agreed to join Attorney General DeWine with the pain-capable brief. This comes one week after Attorney General DeWine filed an amicus brief against the Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate which requires employers to provide insurance coverage for what many believe to be abortion-inducing drugs. 

"Attorney General DeWine's actions prove that he is a quintessential pro-life leader, not just in Ohio but nationally," said Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life. "Not only is he defending pain-capable babies from the violence of abortion, but he is also defending the conscience rights of the pro-life community--and he is doing so on a national scale." 
"Without dedicated and compassionate pro-life advocacy, our judicial system would be littered with pro-abortion court decisions, as evidenced by the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade," continued Gonidakis. "We ask that all pro-life Ohioans, Republicans and Democrats alike, join us in thanking the Attorney General for his advocacy."
