Pro-lifer says OH justice did no wrong

Lady of JusticeA pro-life organization is calling on a state Supreme Court justice to remain on an appeals case.

Ed Sitter of Greater Toledo Right to Life says pro-abortion groups are demanding that Justice Sharon Kennedy recuse herself from a pending case because she spoke before the pro-life group.

Kennedy and other justices are set to hear an appeal from an abortion clinic, Capital Care Network, which ran afoul of a 2014 state law requiring a transfer agreement with a local hospital. Capital Care sued the Ohio Dept. of Health after it ordered the clinic to close and the state agency, after losing its case, has appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court.

The court will hear the case September 12.

Sitter tells OneNewsNow that Kennedy was invited to speak at the group's legislative breakfast "because of her judicial philosophy about not legislating from the bench but simply acting as an umpire."

A press release from pro-abortion group NARAL acknowledges that Kennedy has survived two complaints filed against her, first to the Ohio State Bar Association and to the Ohio Supreme Court Office of Disciplinary Counsel.

The chief justice has also written that Kennedy did not address Capital Care or mention abortion during her appearance at the breakfast, NARAL conceded.

"I don't believe she will back down," Sitter says. "Nor should she back down and recuse herself. She has done nothing wrong."
