Even pro-life groups have speech protected by 1st Amendment

Slam dunk. 9-0. The US Supreme Court Monday upheld free speech over an Ohio law restricting it.

In 2010 Susan B. Anthony List took out a billboard saying that a vote for Obamacare was a vote for taxpayer-funded abortions. (We now know that is a true statement. Heritage) The billboard was targeting a Democrate named Steve Driehaus. He sued, claiming it violated Ohio’s law against “false statements” in political campaigns. 

Think about it. Who enforces this Ohio law? The politicians in charge. Will they be objective in their rulings? Very, very unlikely!

The Supreme Court ruled 9 to 0 that the law infringes on our protection of free speech.
