Christy Tigner to Lead New Right to Life Organization
ZANESVILLE, Ohio--Today, Ohio Right to Life announced the installment of Muskingum County Right to Life, the newest addition to the organization's statewide network of affiliates, chapters and clubs. Leading the organization as president is Christy Tigner, who also serves the pro-life cause by volunteering at Heartbeats, a pregnancy center in Zanesville.
"Christy is eager to help us grow the pro-life cause in Zanesville," said Stephanie Ranade Krider, executive director of Ohio Right to Life. "Her enthusiasm for serving pregnant women at Heartbeats and educating the larger community about the right to life show a well-rounded leader who is interested in advancing our grassroots movement in a very intentional way."
In 2013, 82 abortions were performed on Muskingum County residents, a 35 percent decline from 2004. Muskingum County Right to Life will address lowering this statistic as it works to build a culture of life across the county. Muskingum County Right to Life's first meeting will be tonight, May 14 at 6 p.m. The meeting will take place at Grace Wesleyan Church at 505 Pine Street, Zanesville, OH 43701.
"I'm excited to begin a new chapter in my pro-life advocacy," said Christy Tigner. "I believe firmly in the right to life and am grateful to have the chance to work with Ohio Right to Life to further the cause and protect women and children here in Muskingum County."
