COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, Ohio Right to Life and its members will virtually join thousands for the world's largest pro-life event, the annual March for Life. The March for Life has been held every year since 1974 as a peaceful protest against Roe v. Wade, the United States Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion in all 50 states. This year's March for Life will mark the first time in history that the event has occurred virtually.
The following statement may be attributed to Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life:
“Ohio Right to Life is proud to stand united with pro-lifers from across our nation virtually this year during the 2021 March for Life. Regardless of the obstacles thrown in our way, the pro-life movement will never stop advocating for the right to life. Throughout the 48 years that the March for Life has occurred, one thing has remained constant: our resolve to overturn Roe and end abortion. The current administration's blatant disregard for the life of helpless unborn babies makes our pro-life advocacy more critical than ever before. When no one else will, we will be a voice for the voiceless. Whether marching together in our nation’s capital or standing for the unborn in our own communities, pro-lifers everywhere are energized and ready for the road ahead. The lives of millions of unborn children, completely defenseless, are riding on our boldness and our bravery. The futures of countless women in crisis depend on the depth of our compassion and the strength of our resolve. Today, we remember the 62 million lives lost since Roe v. Wade and we recommit to tirelessly defending innocent human life. Together, united for life, we will end abortion.”
Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 40 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.
