Each year, we take a day to thank some of the hardest working, most dedicated, loving women the world has ever seen: mothers. In the pro-life movement, we spend a lot of time celebrating mothers. We recognize and commend how they daily give of themselves for their children and how they never stop fiercely loving them. As author Ann Voskamp once put it, "I laid down me to make more of you and it wasn't a sacrifice but the unexpected grace of motherhood."
At Ohio Right to Life, we believe that motherhood is where some of the most important pro-life work is done. In raising and caring for children, and instilling values like respect for the dignity of the human person, mothers are on the ground floor of our movement.
To all the moms out there: the days are hard, and sometimes the work seems thankless. But you are loved and cherished beyond what you can believe. Thank you for your sacrifice and today, we celebrate you!
And to all the birth mothers: thank you for being selfless and giving your child life and a loving home. We know the days aren't always easy, but we promise they're worth it. Today, we celebrate you, too.
Wishing you and your family a very happy Mother's Day!

Did you see this article over the weekend? LiveAction declared Ohio one of the most pro-life states in the country! We couldn't be more proud of how the culture of life is winning here in Ohio. We won't stop fighting until the Ohio Abortion Report reads zero!
This weekend, the Washington Post reminded us all how out of touch they are with the majority of Americans. A published column entitled: “I would’ve aborted a fetus with Down syndrome. Women need that right,” grotesquely advanced eugenics based upon a false standard of perfection.
Last night, Sen. Sherrod Brown voted against a bill that would protect babies from the horrific violence of late-term abortions at the point that they can feel pain (20 weeks gestation!). Over 70 scientific studies support the fact that babies feel pain by this point.
Every year, tens of thousands of pro-lifers from all across the country gather together, united in their mission: to give a voice to the voiceless, and to protest Roe v. Wade. For 45 years, the March for Life has encouraged and activated people to further the cause of life, in Washington, D.C. and at home. This year was no exception.
