Ohio's Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act Passes House Health Committee
Today, the House Health Committee passed Ohio Right to Life's Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act by a vote of 12-6. This step forward is an important one as we seek to protect babies prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome from the lethal discrimination and violence of abortion.
The percentage of women who get abortions after a prenatal Down syndrome diagnosis is astoundingly high, measured somewhere between 65-90%. This practice of modern eugenics must end, and that is what Ohio Right to Life has set forth to do.
We are so thankful for the many people who testified in favor of the bill and who have joined Ohio Right to Life in our effort to #StandUpforDown.
With the passage of this bill in the House Health Committee, we hope to see the bill on the House floor in the coming weeks.
The 2018 Election is a year away, but Susan B. Anthony List is wasting no time. Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown and his radical pro-abortion leanings have to go, and SBA List is on the front line, knocking doors all across Ohio. They hope to knock on 1 million doors by next year's election. But they can't do it without your help!
They are hiring passionate pro-lifers who want to earn some money to further the pro-life cause! SBA List will pay up to $400 a week to further the pro-life cause in your community.
