"Thank you for the love!"

Dear friend,

Dayton Right to Life Foundation has worked strategically to increase its community presence and advocacy over the past 6 years. Despite the short setback due to the pandemic, our programs and activities are stronger than ever. Our goal is to create a culture of life in our community. We want to model and bring the prolife ethic to the community, impacting not only families, but our community partners as well. With partners like Dayton Childrens, Greater Dayton Premier management, Childrens Services, and many more, we positively impact over 60 families EVERY WEEK.

I often get asked, what does success look like to you? Well, read this story below.

This past week we had 3 community events---2 baby showers and a parenting class. It was quite busy and our small staff was juggling alot. At one particular event, one mom came over to me and said, "thank you for the love" and gave me an emotional and lingering hug. She continued "You looked so happy to see me today and you're always wanting to listen and stay with us--we always feel safe and comfortable here."

"Thank you for the love."

I cannot express the joy I felt knowing that the families we touch feel love. Sure, they get assistance and education, but they feel our love, God's love, in our activities and actions. Kudos to our staff---no matter how busy we are---we always provide the LOVE.

To our donors and supporters: We don't just 'give away' stuff. Our assistance and programs, given with love and dignity, provides hope to these families. We are providing that gentle and loving presence that says, "we love you and are here for you". We are so appreciative of your support that enables us to love these families on your behalf. We always share with our families that their diapers, clothes, etc come from folks who love them and their children.

So, friends, this past week was another successful week. Thank YOU for the love you show Dayton Right to Life!!

European Union approves draft resolution to make abortion a fundamental right

A draft resolution to include abortion in the Charter of Fundamental Rights passed in a 336-163 vote this week, though largely symbolic. The resolution is not binding, and the support of all 27 member states would be required in order to change the charter.
