COLUMBUS, Ohio-- Today, Ohio Right to Life called on former Ohio Governor John Kasich to rescind his support of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
“While Governor of Ohio, John Kasich’s strong pro-life convictions enabled him to stand against the violence of abortion and work alongside Ohio Right to Life to strengthen protections for Ohio’s most vulnerable. As a man of faith, Kasich claims his policy was informed by what countless people of faith hold dear: that every human life is precious and that abortion is morally unacceptable. It is for this reason that Kasich’s support of Joe Biden is so deeply troubling.”
“Throughout his candidacy, Joe Biden has made his wholehearted endorsement of abortion abundantly clear. Supporting a candidate who believes abortion should be legal up to the point of birth flies in the face of faith and even human decency. You cannot faithfully stand for life and back Joe Biden. We call on John Kasich to rescind his support."
