Help us get to ZERO.
Ohio Right to Life works tirelessly to advocate for laws that protect unborn life. We have worked to get pro-life officials elected to statewide offices and statehouse seats, and spent countless hours educating and advocating on pro-life issues. With the release of the 2018 Ohio Abortion Report this week we are fortunate to see some of the fruits of our labor in the fact that there were 2% fewer abortions in 2018 than in the previous year, and that the number of abortions in Ohio has dropped 31% over the past decade. This is incredible news, and it’s thanks to supporters like you that we are able to advocate for the laws that protect more and more babies in the womb from the violence of abortion.
Governor Mike DeWine did exactly what he said he would do and signed the Heartbeat bill within his first few months as governor, after the Ohio legislature swiftly passed it. Keeping with this strong, pro-life momentum, the legislature, under the leadership of Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof and House Speaker Larry Householder, then proceeded to secure a record $7.5 million to support the work of pregnancy help centers across the state. This, on top of the fact that twenty-two other pro-life initiatives have been enacted in the past nine years, show that Ohio is a pro-life state.
But there is still more work to do. Tragically, over 20,000 lives are still lost to abortion each year in Ohio. This is why we continue to strive to hold abortion clinics accountable, ensure that women receive accurate information about their baby in the womb, and work to pass pro-life legislation that provides life-affirming support to women and babies all across Ohio.
We can’t do all of this without your help. Would you support the work of Ohio Right to Life today with a gift of $20, $50 or $100? A gift in any amount would go a long way to helping us end abortion. It is encouraging to see the numbers heading in the right direction, but we know our work won’t be complete until the abortion report finally reads, “ZERO. Nothing to report.”
