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."

Please direct any further questions to Katherine Franklin, director of communications, at 614­-547-­0099 ex. 304.

    To end any ones life is evil. But as far as the worse evil is

    concerned it is abortion. Please google search how many innocent childrens
    lives have been lost in America since Roe vs. Wade. Then google search how
    many lives were lost in all the American wars or the American wars since Roe v.s. wade.
    I agree with you that war is evil or ending any life is evil. I am for
    reaching out to others instead of fighting and ending lives. Mike Godanakis
    uses his time to speak up against the greatest evil of all abortion. The baby
    cannot flee and hide as some one in a war. Also the baby is completely innocent.
    The greatest evil is abortion war on the unborn baby – next comes general
    war such as vietnam . Both are horrid and evil
    abortion is more evil.

    If you people are so pro-life, why aen[‘t you opposoing the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama wars against POCs around the world? Why aren’t you in the forefront of saving lives by stopping wars of agression against the weak, disenfranchised and the poor? Why aren’t you speaking up about the murders of tens of thousands of chidlren and , babies, and the miscarriages and stillbirths caused by US government? I attended an anti-abortion hearing at the Statehouse a couple years ago where a radical anti-abort from Mansfield told me that it was OK to kill children in Iraq; otherwise they’d grow up and come over here and kill us. Some company you keep, Mike.
