    It was just another night in the living room of a suburban Boston home in 2021. Thirty-five-year-old Ashley Randele, along with her parents Tom and Kathy, was watching an episode of “NCIS.” Tom laid on the couch, which had become his domain following a recent lung cancer diagnosis. Doctors had told the 71-year-old he was probably six weeks away from death. “When I moved here, I had to change my name,” he said mid-show, as casually as if asking his daughter to pass the remote control. “And the authorities are probably still looking for me.” Stunned, his family absorbed the...
  • FACT CHECK: Viral TikTok claims Ohio woman was arrested for miscarriage. Is it true?

    Since the fall of Roe v. Wade last year, abortion advocates have been issuing hysterical warnings of a future filled with women arrested or dying because they can’t access abortion. The reality, however, is nowhere near as grim; women have not been dying from an inability to intentionally kill their preborn children, and the much-publicized cases of so-called “medically necessary” abortions appear instead to be issues of medical malpractice and neglect. And now, in Ohio, a TikTok video has gone viral, claiming a woman has been jailed for having a miscarriage — but once again, the facts are not lining...

    A mystery outbreak of pneumonia has hit several parts of China, and now Ohio is the first American location to report an outbreak of the illness, with an ‘extremely high’ number of children being hospitalized. The strain of pneumonia, now dubbed ‘white lung syndrome,’ has spawned 142 pediatric cases in Warren County since August. Warren County Health Department told Daily Mail, that not only is the number of cases above average, but it also meets the Ohio Department of Health’s definition of an outbreak. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that nationally, cases are not out of the...

    Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-W.Va.) decision to retire has made the Senate landscape in 2024 even more complicated for Democrats. The party was already facing an uphill slog to hold on to its Senate majority, as it prepared to protect seats in West Virginia, Montana and Ohio — three states where the GOP nominee for president will be heavily favored. Manchin’s name on the ballot suggested a competitive race. Without him, the Senate seat seems wrapped for the GOP as a gift. Losing the state would leave no room for another loss for Democrats if they hope to keep their majority,...

He died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the department. “No shots were fired by any responding police officers,” the Beavercreek Police Department said in a social media post.

    An Ohio man – who claimed he was a victim of an anti-Palestinian hate crime – has been arrested after authorities suspect he faked the attack. Hesham A. Ayyad claimed that he was attacked for being Palestinian. He alleged that he was walking at 4:10 p.m. on Oct. 22 on a street in North Ridgeville, Ohio. Ayyad told officials at the Cleveland chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations that someone driving a dark-colored SUV approached him on the road. Ayyad, of North Olmsted, said that he was the victim of a hit and run by the SUV. The day...

    Last week, CNN released the results of an exit poll that was conducted in Ohio on Election Day. This poll surveyed 3,658 Ohio voters in different locations around the state. The poll correctly predicted that 43 percent of Ohio voters would vote against Issue 1, which placed legal abortion in Ohio’s state constitution. Additionally, the demographic breakdown of the polling results provides some insights that might help pro-lifers in the future. First, the results indicate that Ohio pro-lifers did a good job communicating with like-minded people. The exit poll indicates that 82 percent of Republicans and 87 percent of conservatives...

    Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) is leading hypothetical match-ups with his potential GOP rivals in Ohio’s Senate race as he tries for reelection in 2024, new polling shows. An Emerson College Polling/WJW-TV Fox 8 Cleveland survey of Ohio voters found Brown leading 42 percent support to 32 percent in a match-up with Republican businessman Bernie Moreno. Against Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose, Brown leads by 5 points, with 41 percent to LaRose’s 36 percent. Back in October, LaRose was up by 1 point.

    For those worried that abortion extremism is coming to their states, heed these lessons from Ohio. On Nov. 7 in Ohio, the passage of Issue 1 dealt the pro-life movement another stunning defeat in a long string of statewide losses since Roe v. Wade was overturned.It would be too easy for politicians and pundits on the left, and even some on the right, to jump on the “Being pro-life is political suicide” bandwagon and integrate that notion immediately into a long-term strategy to shape our American political life. We have already seen this in the days following Nov. 7.But...

The agency added that it is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and state and local partners to investigate the link. But there are already...

    A decapitated baby doll covered in fake blood was left outside a Palestinian-American family’s Ohio home — with the doll’s severed head impaled on a makeshift spike under their “Free Palestine” flag. Police in the Toledo suburb of Sylvania Township launched an investigation after the chilling display was found around noon Monday, CNN reported. Surveillance video from a neighbor’s house showed a man in dark clothing walking up to the family’s “Free Palestine” flag and placing something underneath, according to an incident repor

    Ohio is the latest state trounced by pro-abortion activists after the fall of Roe v. Wade last year, with voters choosing to codify the “right” to abortion in their state constitution on Tuesday. After the fall of Roe, which had invented a federal “right” to abortion in the Constitution, abortion was returned to individual states and their elected representatives, changing the nature of the struggle between the pro-life movement and the abortion industry. Pro-abortion organizations and activists, backed by the affiliates of large left-wing organizations like Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), have stealthily turned to ballot...

    Sen. JD Vance (R-Ohio) says his state’s vote Tuesday to enshrine abortion rights “was a gut punch” for anti-abortion officials such as himself. In a lengthy post online, Vance, who campaigned against the effort to ensure abortion access, attempted to parse out why the measure won with support from nearly 57 percent of voters.

    Earlier today, we reported on the sad reality that Ohio had voted to enshrine the right to murder babies into its Constitution, a seismic shift that was partially carried forward by an unlikely contingent—25 percent of white evangelicals according to exit polls conducted by the Washington Post. This alarmingly high minority within the evangelical community, by their ballot, have signaled a disturbing shift in the moral landscape of the Church. In the face of such a vote, one must question the influence of evangelical leadership. Figureheads like Brent Leatherwood and organizations like the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty...

    Leading pro-life groups are responding to yesterday’s vote in Ohio, where voters approved issue 1, which creates a so-called right to kill babies in abortions in the state constitution. Pro-Life advocates told LifeNews they would keep fighting to protect babies from abortion and work hard to change hearts and minds in the pro-life direction. Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, told LifeNews that the pro-life movement has to work overtime to combat the massive disinformation campaign from liberals and the media. Misinformation campaigns funded by Big Abortion and its sympathizers pushed a “women will die without Issue 1”...

    President Joe Biden and follow Democrats gleefully celebrated Ohio’s successful initiative on Tuesday to block bans on abortion by adding protections to the state constitution. The approval of the state-wide ballot initiative to protect abortion is the latest result after the Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade in 2022.
