The following statement is in response to Governor John Kasich's win in the Ohio Primary Election. It should be attributed to Stephanie Ranade Krider, executive director of Ohio Right to Life.
"For the last five years, Governor Kasich has gone above and beyond to restore a culture of life in Ohio. Ohio voters have consistently supported his leadership, along with his pro-life accomplishments, to include the de-funding of Planned Parenthood and the enactment of Ohio's Late-Term Abortion Ban. As he advances his bid for President, Governor Kasich continues to reflect the compassion and the the courage that we seek in a pro-life leader. Almost 18 months ago, Governor Kasich won in a landslide against pro-Planned Parenthood Ed FitzGerald. Yet again, Ohioans have chosen our pro-life Governor in spite of all of Planned Parenthood's fear-mongering. We look towards Governor Kasich's continued bid for the presidency with hope for a pro-life future."
As the state affiliate of National Right to Life, Ohio Right to Life cannot issue an endorsement for President until National Right to Life has issued an endorsement. Ohio Right to Life President Mike Gonidakis is a member of the Board of Trustees for National Right to Life and will participate in that process.
