Elections Have Consequences: Oregon v. Ohio
Elections Have Consequences
You may have seen that this past week, Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed a reprehensible bill which makes abortion free for every resident of the state by mandating insurance companies not charge a co-pay for an abortion. Additionally, the bill sets aside $500,000 tax payer dollars to pay for the abortions of illegal immigrants.
This bill is a clear example of a concept we have long known to be true: elections have consequences. If you vote for pro-abortion politicians, your tax dollars will go towards “free abortion for all”! If you vote for pro-life politicians, the picture is very different.
In the past seven years, Ohio has seen 19 pro-life initiatives signed into law by Governor John Kasich. We are so grateful for his pro-life leadership. As we look toward 2018, and the impending governor’s race, it begs the question: does Ohio want to turn out like Oregon? We certainly don’t think so! We will continue to fight for a culture of life, that seeks to protect the vulnerable among us, but we need your help! Please consider making a strategic donation to Ohio Right to Life.
Your action in 2018 will matter greatly to the kind of state Ohio becomes. Help us change hearts and minds!
Advocates Speak Up Against Discrimination at the Statehouse
This past week, the Ohio House Health Committee heard testimony in favor of the Down Syndrome Non-Discrimination Act. We are so thankful for our inspiring advocates who courageously spoke up for babies who are being discriminated against in utero because they have Down syndrome.
We had three people testify: Dr. Dennis Sullivan, the director of the Center for Bioethics at Cedarville University, Kelly Kuhns, a labor and delivery nurse and parent advocate, and Angela Boblitt, Executive Director of Choosing Hope Adoptions and parent advocate.
This hearing came just one week after sponsor testimony on this bill in the House Health Committee. Sponsors Rep. Sarah LaTourette (R-Chesterland) and Rep. Derek Merrin (R-Monclova Township).
