Advocating Against Abortion in the States


As some states are passing laws to protect life anywhere from six weeks to 15 weeks’ gestation, other states are working to enshrine abortion “rights” into their state constitutions. Michigan and Vermont did so in November 2022. Abortion proponents in Ohio are moving closer to placing the issue on the November 2023 ballot. If you reside or practice in Ohio, we encourage you to sign up with Do No Harm Ohio to join our partners and other pro-life physicians to leverage your voice and dollars in the public square to advocate and educate against this proposed amendment. It is critical that pro-choice physicians, legislators, the church and young adults hear from you on this issue that will radically harm Ohioans. Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Missouri, New York, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia are among several states considering ballot amendments in 2024 to enshrine “reproductive freedoms” into their state constitution. Please consider how you should advocate against such amendments if you live in these states.

The following is a compilation of resources to help educate you and others in advocating to protect the lives of the most vulnerable.
