Ohio Right to Life Statement on HB 408

The following statement from Stephanie Ranade Krider, executive director of Ohio Right to Life, is in response to the introduction of House Bill 408.

“In the wake of the heartbreaking tragedy in Colorado, abortion advocates are using a strategy straight from the playbook of radicals: Never let a good crisis go to waste. How much more offensive and incendiary can one get than to compare praying pro-lifers who shudder at the thought of ripping a child limb from limb to a madman who has no respect for human life? Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the pro-abortion politicians who are hurling these slurs have revealed their hypocrisy. The obvious irony is that they are using inflammatory rhetoric to condemn inflammatory rhetoric.”
