Today is a day that means a lot to the pro-life movement. After eight years of pro-abortion policies, we are ready for protections for the unborn. After eight years of watching President Obama and Planned Parenthood fawn over each other, we are ready to de-fund the abortion giant.
Yesterday, Planned Parenthood's research arm, the Guttmacher Institute, reported that in 2014, abortions in America fell to their lowest level since Roe v. Wade.
We are excited to announce that once again we will be co-hosting a reception in Washington, D.C. following the March for Life with pro-life U.S. Senator Rob Portman and Congressman Jim Jordan! This Ohio March for Life Reception also has the support of seven other pro-life Congressmen from Ohio: Congressman Mike Turner, Congressman Warren Davidson, Congressman David Joyce, Congressman Bob Gibbs, Congressman Pat Tiberi, Congressman Bill Johnson, and Congressman Jim Renacci.
As our team finalizes our plans for the March, we want to make sure that you have all of the resources you need to speak out for life this January.
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.
At the end of October, you joined us for a phenomenal evening of faith, hope and life—An Evening with Dinesh D'Souza.
Now, by popular demand, we are pleased to share with you the full-length recording from the event! Included in this recording are speeches from Devin Scribner (Executive Director), Marshal Pitchford (Chairman of the Board), Ellie Wittman (student at Miami University), and our keynote speaker, Dinesh D'Souza.
Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday, a day devoted to kicking off the charitable season of Christmas. Today is that day, and the team at Ohio Right to Life is praying that you will consider sharing your blessings with our life-saving work.
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:
