Sign the petition to Congress at www.NoTaxpayerAbortion.com Congress is trying to force Americans to pay for abortions by eliminating the Hyde Amendment, which has protected taxpayers from funding elective abortion for 45 years. Then BILLIONS of TAXPAYER dollars could be used to PAY FOR ABORTIONS!

State of Ohio

The Ohio legislature will soon pass our next two year budget bill. Several Ohio legislators have introduced a new amendment to the Budget Bill to establish conscience protections for medical professionals. 

Doctors and medical professionals across Ohio face daily challenges in providing medical care for their patients. Many are asked by their groups or hospitals to perform procedures against their moral and/or religious beliefs. 

Among other things, this amendment affords them protection from lawsuits if they refuse to perform a certain type of procedure like an abortion, a gender transition, etc. The opponents to this language are weaponizing this simple protection clause, as an "anti-inclusion" talking point for LGBTQ and Abortion advocates.

 

The Ohio House is being pressured to remove this language. This Conscience Protection Clause is at Risk! 

Immediately contact :
