FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, August 25, 2017 (Toledo, Ohio):
Dear Citizens Against Censorship,
On August 11, 2017 President of Toledo City Council (TCC) Steven Steel introduced an Ordinance titled "Impeding Access to Health Care". This proposed law is a direct attack on our freedom of speech and stifles our freedom to exercise our faith in the public domain. Sharing one's views in the public domain without physically threatening or harming anyone is a constitutional right. Everyone is allowed to assemble peaceably and express their personal views.
Greater Toledo Right to Life has joined a growing number of voices from across our community who are saying no to censorship. Will you join us in making your voice heard?
Here are four action items you can do to defend three of our most basic civil rights-free Speech, freedom of religious expression and freedom of peaceable assemble. I.Pray this is a spiritual battle. If we are to win the hearts and minds of members of Toledo City Council (TCC), then we need to win it first on our knees. Then He will secure for us the victory with TCC. II.Watch the video link and then share it on social media. Help spread this message about the purposed buffer zone. III.Sign our on-line petitionopposing the proposed ordinance 512.12 "Impeding Access to Health are". *Pleaseprinta copy to have friends sign offline. IV.Attendthe hearing on Wednesday August 30 at 3:00 pm. It will be held at One Government Center, Toledo in the council chambers.
One doesn't have to be pro-life to be oppose this ordinance. If you believe in safeguarding several of our most basic civil rights, those of Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression and the Freedom to Peaceable Assembly, then you need to make your voice heard.
Women entering abortion clinics are often facing one of the most difficult decisions of their lives. The Toledo City Council should not be allowed to stifle the rights of citizens to express compassion, truth and offer choices to these women.
Today it is our prayer to end abortion and our loving efforts to offer these women a real choice they are attempting to silence. Tomorrow it could be your prayers or sharing Christ in the public square that TCC finds offensive.
