Ohio Right to Life and Pro-Life Movement Deeply Disappointed, but Not Disheartened

DATE: Tuesday, April 24, 2012                                                        PHONE: (614) 547-0099 ext. 309

(COLUMBUS, OH) – In a surprising turn of events, the Ohio House of Representatives removed a pro-life amendment from Governor Kasich’s Mid-Biennium Review (MBR) legislation, which would have defunded Planned Parenthood in Ohio. The House Finance Committee stripped the pro-life amendment, therefore terminating any opportunity to fast track this initiative.

“The pro-life movement is deeply disappointed with this decision, but not disheartened,” said Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life. “The debate to defund the abortion industry has captivated the pro-life movement, not only in Ohio but also across the nation. This is not the last you will hear from Ohio Right to Life and the pro-life people of Ohio. If further vetting is what this amendment needs, we expect hearings on House Bill 298 to begin next week.”

Ohio Right to Life is extremely grateful to all of its chapters, supporters and affiliated pro-life groups for unifying behind this powerful pro-life initiative. Ohio Right to Life depends upon all pro-life Ohioans to continue to advocate for the unborn and act against the abortion industry through our efforts before the Ohio House of Representatives.


House Bill 298 is pending in the House Health Committee to defund Planned Parenthood, and we are calling on all supporters to join us and call on the Ohio House of Representatives to pass this legislation. To contact your representative, click here.
