National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children
Dayton's historic Woodland Cemetery is one of only two gravesites in Ohio, and only 47 in the United States, where the remains of aborted babies are buried. There, Dayton Right to Life Society maintains two gravesites where a total of seven aborted infants are buried. Each year in September we host a community memorial service to mourn these children and remember all the victims of abortion. Access The National Day of Remembrance website here. See a map of the main gravesite at Woodland Cemetery. Our Woodland gravesites are also the location for community Roe v. Wade events each January.

Legislative Outreach and Education
The Dayton Right to Life Society regularly meets with elected and appointed officials on all LIFE issues pertaining to the Miami Valley and State of Ohio. We provide ongoing education for these officials, as well as the community, on LIFE issues ranging from conception to natural death. Working in conjunction with Ohio Right to Life, we have helped influence the enacting of significant pro-life legislation at the state level in recent years. To learn more about recent pro-life legislative accomplishments, read here.
