Judge Strikes Planned Parenthood Defunding Law   
Ohio Planned Parenthood Retains Government Grants

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Cincinnati, OH), August 12, 2016: U.S. District Court Judge Michael Barrett has ruled against Ohio's House Bill 294, which redirects approximately $1.3 million government funded grants for non-abortion services away from Planned Parenthood.
"Judge Barrett has ignored Ohio policy to prefer childbirth over abortion," said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. "By its own admission, none of Planned Parenthood's Ohio affiliates would close without these grants. Now this leading abortion chain remains the public face for these tax-funded programs."
House Bill 294 was signed law February of this year and blocked abortionists in Ohio from qualifying for six grants administered by the Ohio Department of Health.
Planned Parenthood sued Ohio Department of Health Director Rick Hodges May 11th in federal court to block H.B. 294 from being enforced. May 23rd Judge Barrett granted Planned Parenthood a temporary restraining order stopping the law from going into effect.
Friday, August 2, Judge Barrett heard oral arguments from attorneys for both Planned Parenthood and the Ohio Department of Health in the case Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio et al v. Hodges et al.
The temporary restraining order expired Friday, August 5th but Judge Barrett had until Friday, August 12th to release his decision.
Neither H.B. 294 nor Judge Barrett's decision affects Medicaid reimbursements, a large source of government funding, which Planned Parenthood will still receive.


Be Not Afraid (BNA) is a private non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide comprehensive, practical, and peer-based support to parents experiencing a prenatal diagnosis and carrying to term. In addition, BNA encourages development of new services so more parents find support at diagnosis by offering training, consulting and technical assistance as well as materials to other organizations and individuals committed to service development. You can reach them at Be Not Afraid. Please pass this information on since many parents get pressured into abortion when given a prenatal diagnosis!


"It's A Matter of Life..." by Denver Sallee

The prophet Obadiah rebuked the people of Edom for standing by and doing nothing to help when the Babylonians conquered the Holy city of Jerusalem: “On the day that you stood aloof, on the day that foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, you were like one of them. (Obadiah 1:11). When we get caught up in our own lives and are able to "stand aloof" to the ongoing destruction of human life in the life in the womb--- When we "stand by and do nothing" and fail to even speak outrage as Planned Parenthood continues to be funded with  hundreds of millions of our tax dollars each year---Are we "being like one of them", an apathetic people who did nothing to help as the Babylonians conquered  Jerusalem?

The Story:  Mya Women's Center, a satellite of Bella Women's Center, is almost ready to open it's beautiful doors to serve the women of Ashtabula County and beyond!  

The Need:  A state-of-the-art Ultrasound Machine

The Answer: The Knights of Columbus "Ultrasound Initiative"! Local councils of the Knights raise 50 percent of the funds needed, and the National Knights MATCH these funds to reach the goal of around $30,000 for our machine. 

The Event:  Geneva/Madison Knights of Columbus are hosting a GOLF OUTING (along with other councils in Ashtabula County) on AUGUST 27th at 1:00 pm
(registration @ 12 noon) at Hemlock Springs Golf Course, 4654 Cold Cork Rd in Geneva.

The History:  Knowing our need, local Knights began to research sonogram machines, when Providian Medical was so moved by the cause of Life that they donated a small portable 3D/4D machine that we will use until the full size machine is raised by the community. Then the smaller machine will be donated to the new Ava Women's Center, which is in a struggling community in the Appalachian region of Southeastern Ohio. The blessing will again be doubled!

INTERESTED?  YAY! We're glad!
