Legislators and Pro-Life Advocates to Address Marchers in Columbus, Ohio on October 6th, Educate on Radical Abortion Amendment and Need for Pro-life Protections
COLUMBUS, OH – Today the March for Life, partnered with the Center for Christian Virtue, announced speakers for the second official Ohio March for Life which will take place on Friday October 6th. Marchers will gather at the State Capitol building to peacefully advocate for pro-life protections for women and the unborn just as an extreme abortion amendment comes up for a vote this fall. Speakers and advocates will educate attendees on the dangers of the proposed amendment which would bring painful late term abortions right up until birth to Ohio, cancel parental consent protections for minors, and erase basic health and safety standards for women when it comes to abortion.
“This year’s Ohio March for Life is the most significant the state has seen yet. Just one month after this March, Ohioans will be voting on an abortion-lobby led constitutional amendment which, if approved, would open the door to abortion up until the moment of birth in Ohio. Together with the Center for Christian Virtue, we are ready to welcome thousands of Ohioans to the State Capitol in this critical moment to peacefully advocate both against this extreme measure and for state laws that respect the human dignity of every person, born and unborn.” said Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund.
“Ohio’s second annual March for Life comes at a crucial time in the state. On November 7, roughly one month after the March, citizens will vote on an extreme ballot proposal that would lock abortion up to birth without parental consent into the Ohio Constitution. The Ohio March for Life is an opportunity to gather at the Ohio Statehouse and unite our voices in support of the dignity and personhood of the unborn. CCV is excited to be a partner in the March for Life again this year to show that Ohio is a pro-life state!” said Aaron Baer, President of Center for Christian Virtue
The Ohio March for Life will start with a pre-rally concert at 10:00 a.m. at the State Capitol building in Columbus, Ohio followed by a rally at 11:00 a.m. EST and the March at 12:00 p.m. EST.
