TAKE ACTION: Tell your Senators to confirm Gorsuch
This week, Ohio Right to Life joined the Pro-life Court Coalition, a nationwide alliance of pro-life organizations working to defend the constitutional right to life in the United States Supreme Court.
Now, with the national leadership of our friends at Susan B. Anthony List, we are mobilizing support for Judge Neil Gorsuch to ensure his swift confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Judge Gorsuch has a strong record of protecting life and religious liberty.
- Gorsuch wrote a book called “The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia.” He argues in the book that “human life is fundamentally and inherently valuable” and that “the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong.”
- Gorsuch ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby in holding that Obamacare’s abortifacient mandate violates the religious beliefs of closely-held corporations.
- Gorsuch also ruled in favor of the Little Sisters of the Poor, defending the rights of nuns not to be forced to pay for abortion-inducing drugs in their health care plans.
- Gorsuch forcefully dissented from a case in which the Tenth Circuit sided with Planned Parenthood and refused to allow the Governor of Utah to defund the abortion business in wake of videos showing its involvement in the selling of baby body parts.
When we lost the great Justice Antonin Scalia a year ago, an enormous void was left on the Supreme Court. By all accounts, Judge Gorsuch is a clear intellectual leader in the mold of Justice Scalia. In nominating Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump has kept his promise to nominate only pro-life judges to the Supreme Court.
Will you join us in supporting Judge Neil Gorsuch? Pro-life Senator Rob Portman and pro-choice Senator Sherrod Brown need to hear from you. After all, SCOTUS is the top reason 1 in 5 Americans voted in the 2016 Presidential Election.
You made your voice heard in November—make sure it’s heard again in 2017!
