Sixth Circuit Court Refuses to Protect Conscience Rights of Ohio Taxpayers

DATE: Tuesday, April 18, 2018     PHONE: 614-547-0099 ext. 304

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Ohio’s law defunding Planned Parenthood is unconstitutional.

The following statement can be attributed to Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals made the wrong decision when it comes to defunding Planned Parenthood in Ohio. The Constitution does not give private corporations the right to taxpayer dollars. Planned Parenthood receives countless tax dollars a year from hardworking Ohioans, which frees up their budget to fund their real priorities: abortion on demand. We trust that pro-life Attorney General Mike DeWine will defend this law that protects the conscience rights of Ohio taxpayers at the Supreme Court, and that activist judges won’t get the final say in this matter.

Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 45 chapters and local affiliates, is Ohio's oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.

    The Sixth Circuit’s decision is a disgrace to all Ohioans. Which judge has ties to the abortion business Planned Parenthood that he or she wants our Ohio pro-life tax dollars to support the killing of the unborn, the harming of mothers, and the alienation of fathers? I can’t wait until the US Supreme Court affirms Ohio’s pro-life law.
