A great way to become an MVP on the GTRTL team is by attending our annual Legislative Briefing Breakfast. We are very excited to announce this year’s program features Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. At the briefing you will receive a summary of pro-life initiatives at both the federal and state levels and our panel’s insightful analysis on what you can do to influence their enactment.
Our voices are making a difference. The 130th General Assembly shattered the record number of life-saving pieces of legislation signed into law in the 129th General Assembly.
Those new laws helped close four abortion clinics, saving unborn babies’ lives. They established new funding sources for pro-life pregnancy centers, strengthened health and safety requirements on abortion mills, and defunded Planned Parenthood.
In December this record setting was capped off with Governor Kasich signing Right to Life's adoption reform legislation, S.B. 250, following historic bipartisan majority votes from the Senate, 29-1, and the House of Representatives, 81-4. This adoption reform will eliminate unnecessary costs, protect birth parents and adoptive families, prevent fraud and minimize the bureaucracy in the Ohio adoption process.
There is still much work to be done! Here is a preview of what we hope to see enacted in 2015, with your help:
In the coming weeks Right to Life will be introducing an Ohio Pain-Capable bill. This legislation will challenge the viability limit on abortion restrictions, commonly triggered at 24 weeks, which the U.S. Supreme Court imposed in their Roe v. Wade decision.
No state in the nation has achieved as much as Ohio has in restoring the right to life for the pre-born. This is evidenced by the historic low number of abortions as reported by the Ohio Department of Health. The Pain-Capable bill will continue our tradition of safeguarding the right to life in law.
You can help make all this possible by becoming an MVP of GTRTL. Together we can influence our community and those who represent us in Columbus and Washington to safeguard the right to life in law.
