Last week, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine was unjustly attacked by political opponents for merely doing his job and defending the foundational civil liberties of all Americans. CCV Action encourages you to send Attorney General DeWine a brief note thanking him for standing in the gap for Ohioans’ and Americans’ First Amendment rights.
DeWine joined attorney generals in 19 other states in filing an amicus brief in support of the Green family in the Sebelius vs. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. case before the U.S. Supreme Court. (Filing an amicus brief stating a legal point of view is an important part of appellate jurisprudence and part of the role of an AG). You will recall that the HHS mandate in Obamacare forces employers to pay for employees’ contraception, including several varieties of contraception that are known to be abortifacients.
