Twenty-seventeen is already off to a promising start: A little bit ago, pro-life Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters at a press conference that the GOP will move to strip Planned Parenthood of taxpayer dollars as part of their efforts to repeal Obamacare.
At Ohio Right to Life, we are constantly seeking new ways to reimagine the world we know: to innovate new legislative strategies, to forge new partnerships, and to push ourselves to reach one more heart, one more mind. With the close of 2016, it seems like our opportunities to reimagine our world have dramatically expanded.
On January 22, 2017, our country will mark 44 years since the U.S. Supreme Court issued Roe v. Wade. But to the ire of abortion advocates nationwide, the glory days of Roe are in great peril.
Just two weeks ago, pro-life Governor John Kasich signed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, prohibiting abortion when babies can feel pain, or at 20 weeks gestation. Now, left-wing media outlets are running scared of Ohio Right to Life's legislative strategy to reverse Roe v. Wade and end abortion.
By now you know that earlier this week, Governor Kasich made a momentous decision on two pieces of pro-life legislation. He signed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, while vetoing the Heartbeat Bill.
As the internet descends into name-calling and tragic ad-hominems, we wanted to share with you some thoughts that might raise the level of conversation for the pro-life movement.

Yesterday, The Columbus Dispatch reported, "Ohio legislature likely to pass 2 anti-abortion bills in lame-duck session."
While we are encouraged by headlines like this, with just three weeks left in the legislative calendar, we have a VERY limited window to pass these two critical bills:
Yesterday, the Columbus Dispatch ran an eye-opening front-page story that could have broader political ramifications for the right to life here in Ohio. The story is a personal one that focuses on a little girl's fight for life in the NICU at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus.
Last Tuesday was big.
Pro-life America won the White House and held onto Congress. Pro-life Ohio not only maintained super majorities in the Ohio House and Senate, we also picked up a seat in each chamber. Furthermore, 90 percent of Ohio Right to Life PAC-supported candidates WON election!
It's hard to believe but the General Election is ONE WEEK from today! Over the next 7 days, we need your help getting out the pro-life vote. The best source for all things "VOTE PRO-LIFE" is our PAC website, ohiovotesforlife.org, which is home to our comparisons, ballot cards and endorsements.
