COLUMBUS, Ohio— Today, Ohio Right to Life released a statement on Pro-Life Candidates winning every state-wide race and retaining a solid pro-life majority in Ohio’s General Assembly in the November 8th General Election.
“Ohio is a pro-life state, which is proven time and time again every election,” Elizabeth Whitmarsh, Director of Communications for Ohio Right to Life, stated. She continued, “In the face of the many allegations that ‘Ohio is pro-choice,’ Ohioans boldly proclaimed that we stand for life. Therefore, the radical abortion-on-demand platform has no place in the Buckeye state.”
“Secretary of State Frank LaRose, Attorney General Dave Yost, Auditor Keith Faber, and Treasurer Robert Sprague have prioritized building a culture of life in everything that they do. Their victories are a win for us all,” Whitmarsh stated. Continuing, she said, “it is rare to have such courageous leaders. We are very proud of the work that they have done and will continue to do.”
“Knowing that the pro-life movement won such decisive victories tonight should motivate us all to move swiftly to end abortion from conception by the end of this year. Abortion has no place here in Ohio, and it is time to put a stop to it,” said Whitmarsh
Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 35 chapters and local affiliates, is Ohio's oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.
