COLUMBUS, Ohio— Today, Ohio Right to Life released a statement on J.D. Vance’s victory in the General Election for US Senate on Tuesday, November 8th, 2022.
Ohio Right to Life’s Director of Communications, Elizabeth Whitmarsh, stated, “Ohio Right to Life is extremely encouraged by Vance’s victory tonight, as we have supported him from the beginning. He has proven time and time again that he will fight for the lives of every Ohioan, born and pre-born.”
Throughout the campaign, Tim Ryan attempted to castigate J.D. Vance’s pro-life views as “extreme” or “radical,” despite Ryan recently voting against protecting babies born alive from a botched abortion. His voting record on abortion is repeatedly on the fringes of what most citizens believe. “Tim Ryan’s efforts to manipulate the people of Ohio have failed yet again, and hopefully now he will end his career of lying to Ohioans in his pursuit of power,” Whitmarsh stated. After 20 years of being an elected official, this will be the first time that Tim Ryan does not hold public office.
“It is not often that we see such an effective fighter who not only understands the issues we are facing in-depth but has real tangible solutions as well,” said Whitmarsh. She continued, “Ohio Right to Life endorsed J.D. Vance during the primary due to his insight on how to build a culture of life. His testimony, along with his work in the private sector, has exceptionally prepared him to lead us in Washington. We look forward to working closely with him as we fight to protect every innocent life, from conception to natural death.”
Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 35 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.
