COLUMBUS, Ohio–Today, the Ohio Senate released their amended version of the biennial operating budget, which includes several important pro-life provisions.
The following statement may be attributed to Stephanie Ranade Krider, vice president and executive director of Ohio Right to Life:
We are so pleased that the Ohio Senate included $5 million in funding for the Ohio Parenting and Pregnancy Support Program, and that efforts to remove this funding were tabled. This represents a significant investment in meeting the needs of low-income mothers and infants in need of prenatal counseling, care, and material resources.
Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 45 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.
