This happened after Ottawa Impact published the Pro-Life Protection Assessment, which outlined infiltration and advancement of pro-abortion and pro-Planned Parenthood actions, resources, and alliances within Ottawa County government. (See previous report.)
On May 18, 2022, Ottawa Impact publicly released a Pro-Life Protection Assessment for Ottawa County, which outlined the following in our county government:
Alignment with progressive organizations which promote abortion and “reproductive justice”
Promotion of pro-abortion organizations such as Planned Parenthood
Promotion of radical content on early childhood sexuality and Comprehensive Sexuality Education in schools (see previous report)
Prior to public release, Ottawa Impact shared the report with Right to Life of Michigan, with the hope it would assist Right to Life and other communities across Michigan to defend against pro-abortion infiltration in county government.
Due to the serious nature of the pro-abortion advocacy and alliances within Ottawa County government, Right to Life quickly halted the endorsements of current Ottawa County Commissioners, and reopened the endorsement process to consider the new candidates for county commissioner seats.
On and after June 7, 2022, Right to Life of Michigan PAC issued EXCLUSIVE ENDORSEMENTS for the following county commissioner candidates vetted by Ottawa Impact PAC:
Despite advertisement to the contrary, NO CURRENT Ottawa County Commissioner is endorsed by Right to Life in this election.
Endorsement letters can be seen below.
Ottawa Impact hopes the assessment continues to encourage elected officials, who espouse and are endorsed as pro-life candidates, to live up to the words they profess and actively protect life on life issues in the government bureaucracies they were entrusted by the people to oversee.
An informed citizenry is paramount to maintain good governance. Our passion for life, and defending against the infiltration and advancement of pro-abortion and pro-Planned Parenthood actions, resources, and alliances within Ottawa County government, is equal to our passion for freedom, transparency, and accountability.
