"What you did to the least of these, you did to me." Although Jesus said many things, His clearest concern was for the vulnerable. The vulnerable include our veterans, seniors, children and families.

Group Sues in Federal Court to Block Ohio Commission’s Investigation of False Ad Campaign
Washington, DC – The self-described pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List today asked a federal judge to overturn an Ohio law requiring truth in political advertising. Last week, the Ohio Elections Commission found probable cause that the organization violated the law in asserting that Rep. Steve Driehaus (OH-01) voted for taxpayer funding of abortion. Now, SBA List is seeking to block legal efforts to discover whether it and other organizations knew they were making false statements in order to influence the November elections.
Catholics United executive director Chris Korzen issued the following statement today in response to Susan B. Anthony List’s new legal challenge:
“The Susan B. Anthony List has argued all along that the health care reform act allows federal funding of abortion. If this is true, the group should welcome the opportunity to defend its claims. SBA List's attempt to use the federal courts to strike down an Ohio state law requiring truth in political advertising speaks volumes about its lack of confidence that the facts are on its side.”
Catholics United recently released a letter signed by 36 Cincinnati-area faith leaders – including 11 Catholic nuns – calling on SBA List to stop the lies. Full text of the letter is available at http://www.catholics-united.org/cincinnati-sba-letter.

Do you believe Christ taught us to first serve the poor and marginalized, no matter their beliefs? If so, we agree.
