"We're dealing with the most radical and divisive president in US history," said Ohio Right to Life President Mike Gonidakis. "The President is supposed to represent all Americans. Gallup just reported in their latest poll that over 50% of Americans are pro-life and only 41% are pro-choice. Obama is playing politics with the lives of the unborn and bowing at the altar of Planned Parenthood in hopes of campaign contributions."
The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA) (H.R. 3541) would make it a federal offense to knowingly do any one of the following: (1) perform an abortion, at any time in pregnancy, "knowing that such abortion is sought based on the sex or gender of the child"; (2) use "force or threat of force. . . for the purpose of coercing a sex-selection abortion"; (3) solicit or accept funds to perform a sex-selection abortion; or (4) transport a woman into the U.S. or across state lines for this purpose. However, "A woman upon whom a sex-selection abortion is performed may not be prosecuted or held civilly liable for any violation . . ."
Ohio Right to Life encourages all pro-life Ohioans to call their representatives in support of The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act and to continue to voice opposition to pro-abortion extremism. Contact your representatives by clicking here.
