Victory In Ohio

Common sense has prevailed in Ohio to the benefit of women and children! In late December, Governor Mike DeWine let down his state and outraged pro-family conservatives when he vetoed a law passed by the state legislature. That law intended to ban radical transgender surgeries on children, and it protected women's sports from biological males who illogically claimed they were women.

Governor DeWine has often stood for the sanctity of life, but on confronting dangerous trans ideology he completely failed. The backlash in December was immediate. JDFI and other Christian and pro-family groups called for the legislature to override the governor's veto.

Now the following has happened. On January 10th, the Ohio House voted 65 to 28 to override the DeWine veto, and on January 24th, the Senate joined them in a 23-9 vote. In both cases, the votes passed with overwhelming support of Republican legislators—Governor DeWine's own party!

Ohio Right to Life CEO Peter Range praised the legislature for correcting Governor DeWine's mistake by saying, "Our daughters should not be forced to compete against males in sports, plain and simple, and our children should not be undergoing irreversible sterilizations and experimental transgender medicine."

JDFI joins in praising the Ohio legislature. There is also an important lesson in this victory. After the DeWine veto, his office was deluged with calls and messages from concerned citizens. Ohio legislators also report they experienced an avalanche of communications from the grassroots. Active Christian citizens can restore our country by exercising our God-given rights to be part of the national debate and holding elected officials accountable!

Biden's War on Women

The Biden administration hopes the abortion issue will lead to his re-election in November. Women voters may want to think twice, however. Late last Friday, the administration declared war on women by distorting and destroying Title IX, a landmark 1972 law that bans sex discrimination in any school that receives federal funding. Title IX guarantees equal treatment for women in every aspect of education from the classroom to sports. Feminists hailed its passage 52 years ago, but the law may have a fatal omission that the Biden administration just drove a truckload of "wokeness" through: It didn't define what a woman is.

Religious Left Smears Christian Conservatives

As we have repeatedly warned, there is a deliberate effort to intimidate, shame, smear, and even threaten conservative Christians out of the political and public policy arena. It is understandable that the radical, secular Left would want to do that. But it is outrageous that some so-called "progressive Christians" are lending their support to this effort.

Stand With Israel

We thank God that the April 13th missile and drone attack on Israel, by the Islamic Republic of Iran, failed. Many of the 300 missiles and drones were destroyed by Israel's Iron Dome defense system or by U.S. and Israeli jets. But the failure of the attack does not erase its significance. For the first time, Iran has launched an attack directly from its own territory on Israel, instead of using its proxies, including Hamas and Hezbollah.
