Taylor vs. DeWine: candidate comparison, by the issues (2018 Republican primary for Ohio governor)

On life, only Mary Taylor and Nathan Estruth have always been pro-life with no exceptions.  Mary was the only woman to co-sponsor a bill to ban abortion in Ohio, no exceptions.  Mary has said she would not only sign, but she would call for the Heartbeat bill.  While Mike DeWine has voted for some pro-life legislation, DeWine also voted for Sonia Sotomayor, Merrick Garland, and Eric Holder, and DeWine championed Judge Barrett, the Planned Parenthood judge who is the reason our tax dollars in Ohio still go to Planned Parenthood.

Mary Taylor is endorsed by the grassroots/local Right to Life Action Coalition of Ohio, while Mike DeWine is endorsed by the Ohio Right to Life PAC.

Since then, the Cincinnati Enquirer has reported (longer article, shorter article) that Cincinnati Right to Life has rescinded its endorsements of both Mr. Thomas and Mr. Winburn (and Ohio Right to Life is considering rescinding its endorsement of Mr. Thomas) after both men started waffling on their pro-life stance.

Dear {Governor Kasich},

I have been horrified to read about the heartless way our society treats some children, enabled and facilitated by new technologies.  Especially saddening is the recent case of Sherri Shepherd, who ordered the creation of a child that she now says she wants nothing to do with.  (See, e.g., http://acculturated.com/the-brave-new-world-of-ivf/ )
