Ohio Democrats Ban Pro-Life Group From Public Hearing on Abortion

Yesterday, a committee of House Democrats held a “hearing” at the Ohio Statehouse to smear Ohio Right to Life’s five pro-life budget amendments.
The pro-abortion lobbyists and politicians marketed the event as a “hearing” on women’s health–without expecting to have to follow hearing rules. It seems that the pro-abortion lobbyists and politicians were attempting to disguise a dog-and-pony-show press conference as a “hearing” in an attempt to regain some of their ever-diminishing credibility.
In accordance with the expectations that a public hearing is open to the public and therefore open to testimonies from both sides, Ohio Right to Life arrived to defend our strong pro-life budget, asking to offer testimony.
The pro-abortion Democrats were quick to deny us the opportunity to speak the truth and let Ohio women hear the other side.
Instead, the “hearing” was a series of testimonies from six pro-abortion witnesses that represented organizations like NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
