Statement on Planned Parenthood Statehouse Rally
Stephanie Ranade Krider, Executive Director
The following statement from Stephanie Ranade Krider, executive director of Ohio Right to Life, is in response to the pro-Planned Parenthood rally held at the Statehouse of Ohio this evening:
“Planned Parenthood’s desperation is palpable as they attempt to cover up their ugly practices with overly-saccharine pink shirts, posters and doublespeak. This summer, Americans watched as Planned Parenthood directors haggled over the hearts, lungs, livers and brains of aborted children. We listened to the story of one woman who cut into a child’s face with scissors to procure the brain of a baby aborted at Planned Parenthood. The stomachs of Americans everywhere were in knots as we watched and listened to Planned Parenthood’s horror story, so much so that in August, 70,000 people protested Planned Parenthood at hundreds of locations across the country. Even those who typically identify as ‘pro-choice’ are recoiling from Planned Parenthood in horror. Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood, gave a half-apology for the ‘tone’ of her officials within two days of the release of the first video. While most parties–even Planned Parenthood’s CEO–are walking back their pro-abortion rhetoric, Planned Parenthood of Ohio is barging forward yet again with a tone-deaf rally that is built on the mutilated bodies, hearts, and brains of their victims.”
