    Amul Thapar: Trump Country's Perfect SCOTUS Choice President Trump — already a conservative hero for appointing Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court and for his swift remaking of the federal appellate courts — can again make history by choosing Judge Amul Thapar of Kentucky to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Thapar, the son of Indian immigrants who came to America legally, is the product of public schools in Toledo, Ohio. He was the first ever judge of South Asian descent appointed to the federal bench and would be the first person of any Asian heritage appointed to the Supreme...

    Toledo, OH – There have been new developments in the effort to close a dangerous and deceptive abortion facility in Toledo, Ohio, that require urgent action by pro-life supporters. After the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that the Ohio Department of Health was within its rights to revoke the Capital Care Network of Toledo’s Abortion Facility License for failing to maintain a local hospital transfer agreement, the abortion business began scrambling to keep its doors open. Capital Care Network (CCN) convinced ProMedica, a Toledo area hospital, to sign a transfer agreement earlier this week to prevent the closure of the abortion...

    The Ohio Supreme Court upheld a 2014 state order shutting down Toledo’s last abortion center for violations of health laws, in a five-two decision released today. Abortion center Capital Care had been operating without a transfer agreement with a local hospital since 2013, in violation of a state law passed that same year, according to a press release from Created Equal, a pro-life group based in Columbus, Ohio. Ohio’s Department of Health ordered Capital Care closed in 2014, but the abortion facility appealed the decision, and the lower courts ruled in its favor. Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office took...
