COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, the Ohio Senate passed Senate Bill 27, the Unborn Child Dignity Act by a vote of 24-7. This bill passed the Senate Health, Human Services, and Medicaid Committee yesterday.
The following statement may be attributed to Jamieson Gordon, spokeswoman for Ohio Right to Life:
Ohio Right to Life is thrilled to see this important legislation pass in the Ohio Senate. Aborted babies deserve to be treated with dignity in their death, and that is exactly what the Unborn Child Dignity Act seeks to do. This simple clarification of Ohio law will give women greater informed consent and ensure that unborn children are treated with the respect that every human person deserves. We are thankful for the leadership of pro-life Senator Joe Uecker and the Ohio Senate. We hope that the Ohio House will move quickly on this compassionate piece of legislation.
