We will be joined by Pastor Matt Purdi of H2O Church of the University of Toledo as well as many other pro-life leaders! Join us for what truly can be a historic campaign as we await on the ruling from the Ohio Supreme Court on whether or not Capital Care will have to shut down their doors for good!

Training for Pregnancy Help Centers

Ohio Right to Life

Friend —

In recent years, pro-abortion politicians in a number of states have targeted life-affirming pregnancy centers with harmful laws that violate their First Amendment rights. As alarming as this is, in Ohio, we’ve been blessed with quite a different story.

Here in Ohio, our legislature is overwhelmingly pro-life—so pro-life, in fact, that in the last 7 years, Ohio Right to Life has seen 19 pro-life initiatives signed into law! Relevant to the work of pregnancy help centers, this summer, Governor John Kasich approved $1 million for Ohio Right to Life’s Parenting and Pregnancy Support Program, an initiative we formed in 2013 to provide state funds to life-affirming pregnancy centers.

Ohio pregnancy centers now have the opportunity to apply for this funding – the only question is, “How?”

In collaboration with our friends at Heartbeat International, Ohio Right to Life will answer that question on Friday, September 8 at our Funds for Life Training Session, a training dedicated to explaining how to apply for funding through the Ohio Parenting and Pregnancy Support Program. Here are the details:

2017_Pregnancy_Help_Center_Training_-_Full_flyer.jpg

In years past, there has been a lot of confusion about the application process. The truth is, the application process is rather rigorous and requires careful planning and writing to guarantee consideration. But as intimidating as that may sound, there are plenty of fantastic resources right here in Ohio that can help you as you set out to apply for these funds.

The goal of our training is to connect you to these resources, answer your questions, and set you up for success in your efforts to secure funding for your life-saving efforts!

If you are interested in attending this event, kindly RSVP to me, Jessica Koehler, at 614.547.0099 ext. 303 by Wednesday, September 6.

In Ohio, we are so grateful to have a legislature and governor who care about supporting alternatives to abortion. Ohio Right to Life is eager to help your center apply for these funds and take advantage of this opportunity to grow, change hearts, and save lives.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about our upcoming training or the Parenting and Pregnancy Support Program generally.

With you for Life,

Jessica Koehler

Dear Friend,
