ACLU Sues Ohio to Abort Unborn Children
Statement from Citizens for Community Values President Aaron Baer
COLUMBUS – The ACLU has sued the state of Ohio over the recently signed “Heartbeat Bill” (SB 23). This life-saving law will prohibit abortion once a heartbeat is detected in an unborn child. Preterm-Cleveland, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio, Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio and the Capital Care Network of Toledo will all be plaintiffs in the suit filed in the US District Court, Southern District of Ohio.
“Ohio’s abortion industry is seeking nothing more than a judicial bail-out. After failing to stop the pro-life community at the polls in November, they’re now hoping the courts will protect their deadly and dangerous industry,” said Aaron Baer, president of Citizens for Community Values.
“The bottom line is abortion is big business in America, and Heartbeat bills value unborn people over abortion profits.”
“The Heartbeat Bill is constitutional, and the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and abortion industry need to stop wasting taxpayer time and resources with these absurd lawsuits,” said Baer. “Thankfully, Ohio has the right leader for the job to defend this life-saving law all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary, in Attorney General Dave Yost.”
