(COLUMBUS, OH) - Ohio Right to Life and Americans United for Life joined forces today to advocate for responsible pro-life legislation at the Ohio Statehouse. The pro-life majorities in the 129th Ohio General Assembly allow for meaningful opportunities to protect women and save lives. This reality speaks to the importance of Americans United for Life's partnership and support of Ohio Right to Life as both organizations jointly prepare to propose new pro-life laws.
"On behalf of the Ohio Right to Life Society Board of Trustees, we thank Dr. Charmaine Yoest and the senior staff at Americans United for Life for investing in Ohio's pro-life future," said Mike Gonidakis, Executive Director at Ohio Right to Life. "We look forward to utilizing this strategic relationship to continue to save lives - born and unborn."
This new pro-life legislative alliance marks a historic opportunity for Ohio Right to Life to unite with a national public interest law and policy organization in order to magnify the voice for life. Today's announcement sends a firm message to Planned Parenthood of ORTL and AUL's determination to make Ohio a pro-life state.
Beginning today, Americans United for Life will advocate with Ohio Right to Life for current pro-life legislation. We strongly encourage all of our members to contact our office and aid in our efforts to support and advance the pro-life legislative agenda.
