You may argue that ‘due diligence’ is used when buying or selling something….but that’s exactly what you need to remember when voting locally. Your vote buys or disables what may pervert your conscience. Remember, your religious freedoms are YOUR Constitutional right, not a back door to your back account.
There is a levy on the ballot this election that…well…smelled a little funny to me. And then I received an email from our local Right to Life outreach regarding ‘Issue 11’, saw the endorsements…and now it all makes sense.

REGARDING ISSUE 11 FROM DAYTON RIGHT TO LIFE:

Montgomery County citizens will again have a Human Services Levy on the ballot–to vote whether or not to approve the use of property tax funds to meet human services needs in the county. The Montgomery County Human Services Levy provides grants to organizations that help the aged, addicted, disabled, indigent and more.
But according to Montgomery County Family & Children First, the levy distributions and list of recipient agencies for 2015 will not be available to voters until December 2014, after the November 4th general election.
Tax-Funding Recipients: The 2014 levy’s grant recipients includes respected organizations such as St. Vincent de Paul, and Catholic Social Services. However, the Montgomery County Human Services Levy has in the past also funded abortion provider Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio.
Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio was allocated $60,130 in both 2014 and 2013. Whether Planned Parenthood is on the list to receive funds for 2015 is unknown, and if so, the amount of funding.
Citizens Uninformed. “How can citizens vote for a levy without full information? Citizens have a right to know what organizations are receiving their tax funds,” said Paul Coudron, Executive Director, Dayton Right to Life. “Planned Parenthood is an organization that advocates for and carries out the killing of unborn human beings.”
“We need to know if Planned Parenthood is again receiving our tax funding the same as organizations who work to help, heal, and bring hope to people in need. Any funding to an abortion provider for any reason, supports its abortion agenda.”
Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio: Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio has regional offices in Cincinnati, Dayton, Withamsville, Hamilton, Springdale, Springfield.
The web page for the Dayton Planned Parenthood office states: “If you learn you are pregnant and decide to terminate the pregnancy, we will provide you with abortion services or refer you to an abortion provider.”
Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio’s Cincinnati abortion headquarters recently received a citation from the Ohio Department of Health, and risks being closed for operating outside the law.
ACTION: Contact the following agencies and request that Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio not be an recipient agency for 2015 taxpayer funds under Montgomery County’s Human Services Levy:

Democrats and their agenda is to socialize everything and they will step over dead aborted children to do it. This ‘issue’ is about ‘protecting human services’ but provides funds to PLANNED PARENTHOOD.
The agenda mixes your feelings for helping abuse victims, the disabled, the unemployed, the elderly…on and on…but throws in funding abortion. To them, the aborted are ‘collateral damage’, a means to an end. Much like how the United Way shows you tons of damaged people your money will help but fails to tell you that they also fund sex ed for kids and abortion.
The moral of the story is this: Watch out what you are voting for and if you want to give to your local charities, THEN DO IT! But do it directly; trusting in a levy or fund or whatever to do it to your satisfaction WITHOUT sacrificing your religious freedoms and conscience is DANGEROUS.
BE AN INFORMED VOTER – TRUST YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE….BECAUSE THEY’RE SELLING YOU AGENDA.
