COLUMBUS, Ohio– Late last night, the Lebanon City Council approved an ordinance to designate their city as a Sanctuary City for the unborn. Over 25 cities and towns in the U.S. have declared themselves Sanctuary Cities for the unborn, but Lebanon is the first city in Ohio to do so. 

The following statement may be attributed to Allie Frazier, Director of Communications at Ohio Right to Life: 

Ohio Right to Life applauds the Lebanon City Council for taking a bold stand to protect the most vulnerable in their community. Through this vote, the people of Lebanon have made their voices abundantly clear: Planned Parenthood isn’t welcome in our city. Lebanon’s commitment to life demonstrates what we already know: Ohio is pro-life. The victimization of women and children through abortion has no place in our communities.
It is our sincere hope that more cities across Ohio will follow the lead of our pro-life friends in Lebanon and make their communities safe places for unborn babies and women in crisis. Pro-Life Ohio will continue to work tirelessly to make abortion not just illegal but unthinkable across our great state. 

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.
