Editor’s note. This was distributed today by Jamieson Weaver of Ohio Right to Life, NRLC’s staff affiliate. It is an important reminder of how significant the office of attorney general is in defending pro-life legislation.
Last week, the Toledo Blade published an op-ed coauthored by pro-abortion candidate Steve Dettelbach, discussing pro-life Judge Brett Kavanaugh. You may be asking, who is Steve Dettelbach?
Steve Dettelbach is the Democratic candidate running for Attorney General. For this op-ed, he teamed up with a board member of Planned Parenthood to smear Judge Kavanaugh and herald the wonders of “choice.”
Dettelbach is radically pro-abortion. He has proved this not only through his op-ed, but also through the many emails he sends to his supporters, claiming “I am unmovable in my support of a woman’s right to make her own health care decision.” Here, Dettelbach makes a common mistake that many pro-abortion people make: he conflates killing a child in the womb with a woman’s health care decision.
Let’s be clear: Steve Dettelbach is radically pro-abortion.
You may be wondering why this is so important. I’ll cut to the chase: the next Attorney General in Ohio will be absolutely critical to whether or not Ohio’s pro-life progress is maintained. Over the last seven years, Ohio Right to Life has led the effort to ensure 20 pro-life initiatives were signed into law. As Attorney General, Mike DeWine has fiercely defended our pro-life laws in federal court during the past seven years. Thanks to his pro-life advocacy, Ohio has seen a 25% decrease in abortion in that same time period!
If Steve Dettelbach becomes Attorney General of Ohio, he will do everything in his power to make sure that all the pro-life progress we’ve achieved in Ohio is destroyed. We can’t let that happen.
