There's no denying it: Last Monday, we lost.
With the swing of one Supreme Court Justice—a Catholic man and a Reagan nominee—the Supreme Court struck down two basic health and safety standards for abortion facilities in Texas. How could there possibly be a silver lining to this shocking decision?
As we celebrate our nation’s birthday, we remember the great pains our Founding Fathers took to establish this great country. They fought, and many died, because they believed that the people living in the Colonies deserved freedom.
Together with our friends at Susan B. Anthony List, Ohio Right to Life organized our first-ever Pro-life Day of Action on Saturday, June 25!
Yesterday, the Supreme Court of the United States sided with the abortion industry in a 5-3 decision that struck down health and safety regulations for abortion facilities in Texas, a terrible loss for pro-life Americans everywhere.
You might be asking, just what is Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt? It’s a case that made its way up to the Supreme Court. The case surrounds two Texas abortion regulations that were passed in 2013. The first says that an abortionist must have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the abortion facility. The second says that abortion facilities must meet the standard that is laid out in Texas law for traditional ambulatory surgical facilities.
Just now, Ted Strickland, pro-abortion Democratic nominee for US Senate, held a meeting with Cecile Richards at the Ohio Democratic Party headquarters in Columbus.
Yesterday, Ohio Right to Life President Mike Gonidakis met with presumptive Republican nominee Donald J. Trump in New York City.
Just as we do every election, Ohio Right to Life is diligently collecting information and opinions from our supporters and thought leaders in the pro-life movement. Mike's meeting was an important part of that process.
In America, we are proud to say that we are the land of the free and the home of the brave. We have a Constitution that makes sure that “land of the free” is a label we can use in America for generations to come. It becomes frustrating when entities decide that the rights laid out in the Constitution, specifically the First Amendment, shouldn’t be applied to those they disagree with.
Last week, Ohio Right to Life announced that our president, Mike Gonidakis, will be meeting with presumptive Republican nominee Donald J. Trump tomorrow in New York City. This meeting is just as much about analyzing Mr. Trump's credentials on life issues as it is about educating him on the value of pro-life policies.
