Catholic Church and ORTL Jointly Advocate for Health Care for Poor Women
Statewide religious denominations lend support to pro-life advocacy
Ohio Right to Life welcomed the pro-life advocacy of the Catholic Conference of Ohio along with Ohio Catholic hospitals and Catholic Charities agencies in support of health care coverage for the poor, especially young women.
“Governor Kasich’s proposal ensures that young, low-income women will now have access to a real doctor instead of some relying on Planned Parenthood,” said President of Ohio Right to Life, Mike Gonidakis.”Ohio Right to Life continues to identify innovative opportunities to reduce and ultimately eliminate abortion in Ohio. By giving young women access to real health care and a primary care physician, we believe less and less women will view Planned Parenthood as their only option.”
According to a recent Ohio Medicaid report on Mothers, Infants and Children issued by Jobs and Family Services, Ohio Medicaid has paid for two out of every five births in the state. Medicaid continues to cover one out of every three births to white mothers, three out of every five births to Hispanic mothers and seven out of every 10 births to African-American mothers in Ohio.
