Right to Life of Northeast Ohio is accepting nominations to recognize individuals or groups who best personify a commitment to the pro-life mission of protecting innocent life from conception through natural death, and who would be worthy role models to inspire others.
Past award recipients come from all walks of life, but all are united in their dedication to protecting the sanctity of life. We want to honor those who have demonstrated a selfless commitment to service and the culture of life, who have had a significant impact on the lives of others, and whose efforts can positively impact the future as we work to bring an end to abortion and all other threats to human life.
