We strive to create a culture where every child is welcomed into the world and protected by law; where every pregnant mother receives the help she needs to face an unplanned pregnancy; and where every terminally-ill person has access to decent pain relief and is protected from being killed by euthanasia and assisted suicide.
2016 Ohio Abortion Report
On September 29, 2017, the Ohio Department of Health released the 2016 Ohio Abortion Report, revealing a decrease in the number of abortions from 2015. This marks the lowest level since 1976, when record-keeping first began. A total of 20,672 abortions were reported in the state of Ohio. This is nearly a 27 percent drop from 2010 (28,123).
Since 2010, half of the state's abortion facilities have been shuttered or closed voluntarily. In the last seven years, Ohio Right to Life has successfully advocated for 19 pro-life initiatives which were signed into law by Governor Kasich.
There were 27 residents of Scioto County who obtained an abortion in 2016. This was down from 38 in 2015. Click HERE for Scioto County data since 2006.
