Local pro-lifers outlawing abortion

'Believe in Miracles' signOhio will soon launch an effort to make abortion clinics and their personnel go elsewhere.

People at the local and sometimes state levels often feel they either have no voice or that what voice they do have is not heard. But Mark Harrington of Created Equal reminds One News Now of an old saying: All politics are local.

"As we're seeing more dysfunction in Washington, D.C. and our state houses, unborn babies unfortunately are still dying, and people are thinking about what they can do to stop this," he relays. "So we're starting to focus more on the state and local levels."

Taking heart from Texas' success, Created Equal has launched a drive to convince cities -- small and large -- to pass ordinances outlawing abortion and abortion clinics.

"There's a movement in Ohio that's sick and tired of Washington, D.C., also sees gridlock even at our state level, and are looking for things for people to do at a local level," Harrington reports. "This is something anyone can do. They can build their own support and bring the ordinance before their own city council and get it passed."

While most abortion clinics are in the more populated cities, they have also set up shop in smaller areas, so every pro-lifer has reason to act. So far, almost two dozen small Texas towns have declared themselves a sanctuary for the unborn -- among them Carbon and Gorman, the 20th and 21st to do so (respectively). Sanctuary Cities for the Unborn provides full information and instructions for how other cities can do likewise.
