Proposed Abortion Amendment to Ohio's Constitution

The dignity of life in its earliest stages is threatened by a proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution to expand and enshrine abortion at the expense of existing protections for preborn children and women. As Catholics, we cannot remain on the sidelines when confronted with such a clear threat to human life.  The Catholic Conference of Ohio has created a page on our website dedicated to resources to help Catholics unite in prayer and learn more about the proposed amendment and help defeat it. Visit to download a flyer and prayer card and learn more about how to take action.   

Support School Choice for All Ohio Families

If passed, Senate Bill 11 (Enact the Parental Education Freedom Act) would allow every student in the state of Ohio the opportunity to receive an EdChoice Scholarship. For decades, the Catholic Conference of Ohio and the Catholic Church nationwide have led advocacy for expanding school choice to allow more students of all backgrounds and income levels to attend Catholic schools. We must uphold public policies that strengthen the family as the central social institution of society. The Catholic Conference is currently advocating for SB 11 to be included in the state budget, which must be signed into law by July 1, 2023.
