COLUMBUS, Ohio--Today, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and others filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern Region of Ohio, attempting to stop the Dismemberment Abortion Ban from going into effect in March. This law was signed by former Governor John Kasich in December 2018.

The following statement may be attributed to Mike Gonidakis, President of Ohio Right to Life:

Ohio Right to Life is frustrated but not surprised that Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities decided to sue on the Dismemberment Abortion Ban. This law, should it go into effect, would prohibit the barbaric dismemberment abortion procedure, in which an abortionist first dilates the woman's cervix, and then uses steel instruments to dismember the living, unborn baby. It's hard to imagine how Planned Parenthood could be in support of a procedure which allows living unborn babies to be ripped limb from limb. This horrendous procedure took place nearly 3,500 times in Ohio in 2017. At what point will the court reject Planned Parenthood's frivolous lawsuits?

Founded in 1967, Ohio Right to Life, with more than 45 chapters and local affiliates, is Ohio's oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement in Ohio, ORTL works through legislation and education to promote and defend innocent human life from conception to natural death.

    How disgusting that the abortion business Planned Parenthood would rush to court to justify how its abortionists cut unborn babies to pieces. Planned Parenthood, instead of dismembering the unborn, support mothers by eradicating abortion, not the unborn children.
