Political Action

Marilyn DowlerThe issues of abortion, human development, euthanasia, fetal experimentation and infanticide are in the forefront of legislative efforts on the local, state and national levels. Since our legislators make countless decisions that affect the attitude toward, and the extent of protection for, innocent human life it is key that we be aware of proposed legislation and our representatives and senators who support or oppose it.In order to positively affect the outcome of legislative proposals that deal with the life issues we strive to bring you the most recent legislative initiatives at the Ohio State House and in the U. S. Congress.

It is crucial that pro-lifers be well informed and ready for action. For more information see www.ohiolife.org for further legislative news.

Ohio Right to Life PAC Endorses Statewide Candidates

Powerful Slate of Pro-Life Candidates Committed to a Culture of Life

 

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) – The Ohio Right to Life Society PAC today announced its endorsements in five of Ohio’s statewide races.

“The philosophical direction of the United States Senate hangs in the balance and we have learned the hard way that elections do have consequences.  The election of Rob Portman to the United States Senate should be priority number one for the pro-life movement to ensure that abortion and taxpayer funding of abortion does not become part of any national health care plan.  It is an absolute responsibility for the men and women of Ohio’s Pro-Life movement to support Rob Portman, who supports, promotes and has defended a culture of life throughout his career,” said Mike Gonidakis, on behalf of the Ohio Right to Life PAC.

Marshal Pitchford, Chairman of the Ohio Right to Life Society Board of Trustees stated:

“The Right to Life movement in Ohio is fortunate to have experienced and highly qualified pro-life candidates seeking the State’s executive offices.”

“As a former speaker of the Ohio House, Jon Husted brings a wealth of practical experience to the office of Secretary of State.  As an adoptee, he also brings a first-person view of the value of life and the importance of providing women positive alternatives to abortion.”

“Throughout his career, Mike DeWine has been a pro-life champion.  In the U.S. Senate, he sponsored the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which reflects the fact that attacks on pregnant women can injure or end two lives.  As Attorney General, he will defend the value of all human life.”

John Kasich had an outstanding pro-life voting record during his career in Congress.  His running mate, Mary Taylor, is an articulate advocate of the right to life movement.  As Governor and Lt. Governor, they will reflect the common sense and common decency of the people of Ohio.”

Josh Mandel has defended life and freedom as both a state representative and a marine in Iraq.  He will bring the same boundless energy and “can-do” attitude to the office of Treasurer of State.”
