Bernard Schlueter, a board member of Ohio Right to Life, has taken the same venue and role that his executive director has taken – the path of least resistance. Just like Mike Gonidakis of Ohio Right to Life, Mr. Schlueter has the blood of unborn Ohioans on his hands if he does not support the Heartbeat Bill.

Gonidakis and Schlueter think that the Heartbeat Bill is going to cost too much money to fight…since when does the price of Life have a ceiling?

In part, Schlueter says in his editorial, “We align ourselves with the Catholic Church and other church teaching in order to achieve the ultimate goal while working to preserve life in the present moment.” That was his first mistake. The right to Life is not a Catholic issue – the Right to Life is God given and taught in the canon of Scripture that is inspired by God, not by a denomination or its framers. The BIBLE contends that our Life has been known to HIM since the foundation of the world; all Life that has not been known to us yet is known to HIM and it is up to us as CHRISTIANS to maintain what HIS Holy Word says: “Thou shalt not kill” and “Love your neighbor as yourself”.

KeepLifeLegal is an advocate of Life at all stages and the Heartbeat Bill. We believe that God is our inspiration for the cause of Life, not denominations or organizations:

Here at KeepLifeLegal, we believe what the BIBLE says because it is the INSPIRED WORD OF GOD. We do not associate our ministry with denominations because they teach what their founder(s) believe or conjured, not what the BIBLE teaches which is: 

  1. The finished work of Jesus Christ; The only means of being cleansed from sin is through Repentance and Faith in the Precious Blood of Christ
  2. There is one God, eternally co-existent in three Persons – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Trinity)
  3. The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God

Anyone that understands these most basic points of Christianity will comprehend that Life is precious to God in all forms and ages regardless of how much it costs or who is aggravates. The price of Life cannot be calculated or determined. 

For as inconsequential as Gonidakis and Schlueter really are in the grand scheme of things, they are doing their best to destroy what can be the most important piece of legislation that has crossed the desk for the unborn. It should be Ohio Right to Life’s responsibility to whole-heartedly back any and all prolife legislation.

These people are real deal and the who’s who of the prolife movement that is supporting the Heartbeat Bill:

 And this is the short list. There are over 400 groups and leaders that support Ohio’s Heartbeat Bill…Gonidakis and Schlueter have made this a personal issue, not a Life issue.

  1. I don’t know how you feel about this, Rev. K.H., but I think Right to Life, in general, is nothing more than a wash.

    You can say whatever you want about Planned Parenthood and NARAL, but they know how to attract people, especially young people, to their movement. They have nice, modern, and frankly cool-looking websites. Their big guns consistently encourage young protestors to keep fighting. And, most importantly, their movement is secular, not including or excluding religion. In contrast, Right to Life has a website that looks like it’s from the early 90s; their executives are rather pompous, I feel; and because their movement is, in my view, centered around Christianity, they alienate non-Christians, atheists, and agnostics! Now, believe me, I’m all for spreading the good news, but that is and should be a separate battle.

    I’m trying to convince my local Right to Life to change, but my protesting goes ignored. I’ve all but given up on them. Our hope is LiveAction and other groups started by young people. National Right to Life has become, in my view, a nationally joke.

  2. As a question to the above comment, why is it that Christianity is almost always criticized by non-Christians in this particular subject? The fact of the matter is that if one doesn’t know Jesus personally, more times than not, they won’t appreciate the sanctity of life. When one accepts Jesus as Savior in his/her life, their eyes are opened to the truth. Until that happens, I guess there is alot of compromising. Yes, the devil knows how to attract young people and deceive them to the truth. Nice, modern and frankly cool-looking websites is how the devil deceives people. Wake up folks.

  3. The pro-life movement is written off because of its penchant to preach. You are the perfect example of what I’m talking about. You have just stated – albeit, not in so many words – that one must be a Christian in order to be moral. Do you have any idea how arrogant that statement is? You make it easy for us to be ignored, for children to continue being slaughtered…

    You need to wake up.

  4. What I was saying that If a person invites Jesus into their lives, He makes it easier to be moral. We all have areas in our lives that need constant help. What you are saying is that you are moral and have no problems in your life and that you don’t need Jesus. He is the author of life. Don’t criticize Jesus if you don’t know Him. Try Him, you might like Him. Planned Parenthood says it’s okay to kill your baby, if you don’t want the baby. Seeing as you agree with Planned Parenthood, then you agree with abortion. You are a fool.

  5. I don’t believe Jesus makes it easier to be moral; I believe He makes us WANT to be moral. Living a sinful life is easy; it’s being Christ-like that’s hard.

    What you are saying is that you are moral and have no problems in your life and that you don’t need Jesus.

    That’s not what I’m saying – at all.

    I used to be a pro-abortion, liberal atheist. It wasn’t until one of my children was aborted that I switched to the other side, still an atheist. I managed to ignore the pro-life movement for so long by writing its adherents off as unreasonable Christian fascists. Some figure ridding the country of abortion is the first step, the next is to ban homosexuality, and anything else the Christian community opposes. People remember what Sinclair Lewis said: When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.

    But I’m not going to justify anything to you. Few people are more pro-life than I am. Instead of spewing absurdities, visit my website and take a look. I’m also an evangelical Christian, but an educated one. And I know that the best way to defeat the pro-abortionists is to NOT allow them to write us off.

    God and His word are authorities in my life, but I recognize this is not so for everyone. Perhaps you’d do well to recognize this truth as well.

  6. Terrance, I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your child. I do know men that have been greatly affected by a woman’s ‘choice’. Roe is so lopsided and fiercely wrong on all sides. I was raised Catholic and turned atheist because of how life somehow justifying it’s using me for it’s amusement. I became a Christian at 40 years old; I hate how long it took me to find my mind and I’m even sorrier (sp) because I could have raised my children in the way of the Lord in stead of the way of ‘Katherine’. Life is so precious for both the born and unborn and it’s such a short bit of time that our choice of Eternity will be heeded. Be blessed in the Lord, Terrance & Audrey – for we are only here for a brief bit of time; the Bible says it is but a vapor. God Bless you both!
