COLUMBUS, Ohio–Today, the Ohio Right to Life PAC announced its statewide endorsements for the November 2018 elections. The PAC issued endorsements for all statewide offices, the U.S. Senate, Ohio Supreme Court, Congress, and the Ohio General Assembly, emphasizing the importance of maintaining pro-life leadership at all levels of government.
“This year’s election is proving to be a historic one” said Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life. “In Ohio over the past seven years, we’ve seen unprecedented progress in favor of life. The number of abortions is at a historic low, with an over 25% decrease in that same time period. Twenty Ohio Right to Life initiatives were signed into law. If we are to continue to make these tremendous advancements, it is imperative for pro-life Ohio to elect these strong pro-life candidates. It’s clear that elections have consequences, and we are incredibly aware of the importance of the November election for the pro-life movement in Ohio.”
Gonidakis emphasized, “For all these reasons, the Ohio Right to Life PAC unequivocally urges every pro-life Ohioan to turnout in November and vote their values. Mothers and their babies are depending on us.”
The Ohio Right to Life PAC has endorsed, recommended or preferred over 100 candidates for the November 6 general election. These candidates hail from all corners of the state, but share a common respect for the dignity of every human person. During the primary, 89% of the Ohio Right to Life endorsed candidates won their races, more than the win percentage for NARAL-endorsed candidates in their primaries.
“The Ohio Right to Life PAC is proud to endorse Mike DeWine and Dave Yost, two men who have tirelessly defended life throughout their careers,” said Marshal Pitchford, chairman of the Ohio Right to Life PAC. “The slate of candidates that we have endorsed this year are strong and ready to go to bat for the pro-life movement. We look forward to working along side of them to defend the fundamental right to life of every person.”
