In a pro-life victory for Ohio, President Donald Trump convincingly won the Ohio presidential election. Another statewide race trended positively for pro-life Ohio Supreme Court Justice Sharon Kennedy. Defying polling expectations pro-life Republicans not only maintained control of the Ohio House and Senate, they increased their super majorities in both chambers.

“Last night, voters resoundingly affirmed what we already know- Ohio is pro-life,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. “Regardless of what lies Planned Parenthood and their allies would want you to believe, the results of last night’s election prove that Ohioans continue to vote their values first and are committed to electing leaders who will unapologetically protect the right to life. President Trump’s victory in Ohio demonstrates that when it comes to the life issue, Ohioans stand with leaders like the President who value all human life.”

Ohio Right to Life PAC endorsed candidates overwhelmingly won in last night’s general election. Every endorsed Ohio Senate candidate won and pro-life Congressional incumbents stood strong in their prospective races. In all, 77 percent of Ohio Right to Life PAC endorsed and preferred candidates won their elections.

“Whether voting for local offices or national races, one thing is clear – Ohio votes pro-life first. On behalf of our Board, our staff, and our statewide membership, Ohio Right to Life offers our sincere congratulations to our slate of pro-life candidates,” said Gonidakis. “The work you do to protect and defend life will have a profound impact on our state.”

With impressive pro-life gains in the Ohio General Assembly, Ohio Right to Life looks forward to continuing to work for increased protections for innocent human life. In the last 10 years of pro-life leadership, Ohio Right to Life has successfully advocated for the enactment of 22 pro-life initiatives. During that same time, abortions have decreased over 30% percent and half of Ohio’s abortion facilities have closed.

“In Ohio the tide has turned towards the cause of life,” said Gonidakis. “We are pro-life Ohio and together we will continue to work until every innocent human life, born and unborn, is unequivocally protected.
