COLUMBUS, Ohio–  Earlier this week Columbus abortion facility Founder’s closed its doors. Founder’s which first opened in 1973 was Ohio’s oldest abortion and longest operating abortion facility. 

The following statement may be attributed to Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life:

“Ohio Right to Life is relieved to learn that Founder’s finally closed. This unhealthy and unsafe abortion clinic that has hurt countless women and caused the death of thousands of innocent babies was a blight on our great state. Its closing is a long-fought victory for Pro-Life Ohio and a reason to celebrate. Today the cause of life has prevailed.”

“As the fight to protect vulnerable life continues to be waged both here in Ohio and on a national level, the closing of Founder’s is a poignant reminder for us to never lose heart in doing good. Ohio is pro-life and our commitment to ending abortion is moving mountains and saving lives.”

Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 40 chapters and local affiliates, is Ohio’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.
