I have always been and will always be a staunch supporter of the right to life. My family has long supported local organizations which offer support to women in crisis. Many years ago while still in law school it was not uncommon for my wife to open our home as an emergency shelter to pregnant teens. From the womb to the tomb the right to life is precious and guaranteed by our Constitution. While the United States Supreme Court has limited the authority of Ohio and other states to protect the unborn, I remain committed to a Constitutional Amendment to explicitly guarantee the right of the unborn to life.
There are two Bills working their way through the legislature which could dramatically reduce abortions in Ohio. Either of these "Heartbeat" Bills would give Ohio among the strictest abortion laws in the United States and save thousands of lives of the unborn. Sadly, these bills have become bogged down in the legislature. If elected, I am committed to carrying the moral and political fight forward to protect these most innocent of lives!
