Today, we are just under one week away from the Ohio Primary Election! The question at the top of everyone’s mind is which way Ohio will swing in our pick for President of the United States.
You might know that our affiliation with National Right to Life prohibits Ohio Right to Life from endorsing for President in the Primary Election. Our own president, Mike Gonidakis, will play a role in that process as he sits on the Board of National Right to Life. In the meantime, we do want to provide you with a comparison of the candidates’ pro-life credentials. (Click here to view and download Presidential Comparison.)
We strongly urge you to cast a vote for the candidate you believe will work to defend human life from conception until natural death; who will stand up to Planned Parenthood; who will appoint a Supreme Court Justice who will overturn Roe v. Wade; who will protect religious freedom; and who will oppose the life-threatening policies of Obamacare.
Pro-life Presidential candidates Senator Ted Cruz, Governor John Kasich, and Senator Marco Rubio (listed in alphabetical order) have modeled these values through their actions in office.
Additionally, we want to highlight some quintessential pro-life candidates who are running in Ohio and have received the endorsement the Ohio Right to Life PAC.
Running at the top of the ticket are pro-life U.S. Senator Rob Portman and pro-life Judge Pat Fischer. An original co-sponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act as well as the Partial Birth Abortion Ban, Senator Portman stands as a stark contrast to pro-abortion and pro-Planned Parenthood Sherrod Brown and Ted Strickland.
Judge Pat Fischer is a well-respected member of the legal community. He has a depth of experience in Ohio’s judicial system, a commitment to ethics and professionalism, and opposes judicial activism, preferring Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s example of judicial restraint.
Other notable candidates include Congressman Dave Joyce (U.S. House District 14), Tim Derickson (U.S. House District 08), State Senator Larry Obhof (Senate District 22), and Matt Huffman (State Senate District 12). All of these pro-life leaders have 100% pro-life voting records in their respective offices. They are proud defenders of human life, have consistently stood up to Planned Parenthood, and are committed to putting an end to abortion.

You know as well as we do that elections have consequences. Let’s make sure those consequences are life-affirming!
