Legislative Update as of Jan 12, 2018
The Ohio Right to Life's Unborn Child Dignity Act (S.B. 28) was approved by the Senate Government Oversight and Reform committee 7 to 3. This legislation requires the humane burial or cremation of unborn children following an abortion. The legislation also increases informed consent for women seeking abortions. The Unborn Child Dignity Act is sponsored by Senator Joe Uecker. The legislation now heads to the Senate floor for a full vote.
The Unborn Child Dignity Act was introduced after the release of viral undercover videos in which top officials at Planned Parenthood were caught discussing the trade of aborted baby body parts. Later, state investigators discovered that Planned Parenthood locations in Ohio contracted with waste disposal companies that deposited the remains of aborted children in landfills.
The Right to Life Action Coalition of Ohio (RTLACO) worked with the sponsor Senator Uecker to strengthen and eliminate potential loopholes contained in the original draft. “We appreciated Senator Uecker’s willingness to make it the best bill possible”, said Ed Sitter, Executive Director of Foundation for Life and the 2017 President of the RTLACO. Thanks go out to pro-life communities across Ohio who contacted their Senators and to Paul Coudron, Executive Director of Dayton Right to Life (an Action Coalition board member), and Barry Sheets, RTLACO board member, for their proponent testimony.
“It’s important that we enact pro-life legislation that will do what it advertised to do” said Sitter. “This is another classic example of where diversity of voices within the Pro-life community is an asset to ensuring we enact the best bill possible.”
