“Today, Citizens for Community Values counter-punched with a press release contending that ’90 percent of elected Republicans at the state and federal level support the definition of Natural Marriage as defined in the Ohio Constitution as one man and one woman.’”

Please see the good news below from Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), a national pro-life organization. The Supreme Court of The United States (SCOTUS) has unanimously ruled that SBA List does indeed have standing to challenge Ohio’s “false statement” law in federal district court. This is an important case for free speech in Ohio and our nation.
Please see the note from SBA List and the links to their press release and a Politico.com article on the subject.
Thank you for your continued support of life and liberty.

This week, the popular political news website Politico.com released the results of their recent national poll.
Encouraging, Telling Results:
Fully 70% of Americans say the issue of abortion is important in their voting decisions, and nearly 80% favor at least some restrictions on abortion.
Additionally, a majority of Americans (52%) oppose redefining marriage, and nearly 2/3 of voters polled say where a candidate stands on marriage is important in selecting their candidates.
As we have seen in Ohio, with the polling figures over the last month, support for same-sex marriage is declining as citizens become increasingly alarmed and disturbed by the bullying tactics carried out by many in the same-sex marriage movement.

CCV Action PAC would like to congratulate all those who were victorious in Tuesday’s primary election. We would also like to thank all of those who ran, campaigned, or voted for engaging in our civic duty and blessing of self-governance and the electoral process. We thank God for the opportunity to engage in free elections, a privilege that many “gave the last true measure of devotion” to protect, to quote President Lincoln.
CCV Action PAC was particularly encouraged by the fact that, in addition to endorsed incumbents who won re-election nominations, seven CCV Action PAC-endorsed non-incumbents (running in open races or as challengers) won their contested primary nomination for State Representative! This is encouraging news for all Ohioans who hold conservative values and principles.
If you are a candidate or supporter, please remind all candidates for November’s general election to complete the CCV Action PAC Questionnaire on OhioElectionCentral.com in order to be considered for endorsement. All candidates, even those previously endorsed in the primary, must fill out the general election questionnaire in order to be endorsed for the general election.
If you are interested in participating in the political system, or know someone who is considering a run, please contact us. If you are Pro-Life, Pro-Marriage, and Pro-Religious Freedom, we would love to help you prepare. Whether that means weighing the odds, laying out a campaign strategy, or just dipping your toe in the water to better understand what it takes, please let us know. Maybe you are being prepared “for such a time as this…”

New Poll Shows Decline in Support for Same-Sex Marriage
A new independent poll of 405 registered Ohio voters confirms a decline in support for same-sex marriage in Ohio. The poll was commissioned by Citizens for Community Values Action (CCVA) and conducted during the week of March 31 – April 3.
Highlights of the poll show:
1) Only 33% of respondents are certain they would vote to allow marriage between two people of the same sex. Correspondingly, 52% of people are certain to vote to keep marriage as only between one man and one woman.
2) 55% do not think it is necessary to have another vote this year on homosexual marriage.
3) On the question, “Do you personally agree or disagree that marriage should only be between a man and a woman?” 56% agreed and 34% disagreed, with 9% don’t know/no response.
4) 89% of those polled are either absolutely (66%) or very likely (23%) to vote.

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.

Citizens for Community Values Action (CCVA) learned recently that Mr. Ed FitzGerald candidate for Ohio Governor and Mr. David Pepper candidate for Ohio Attorney General both Democrats support overturning Ohio Constitution that defines natural marriage as a union of one man and one woman. At the same time they support legalizing same-sex marriage in Ohio. Both candidates also opposed Ohio’s Religious Freedom Amendment HB-376. These two candidates are listed as “unacceptable for public office“.
