Northern Kentucky Right to Life Founder & President
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (October 28, 2016): Family, friends, and compatriots in the work to protect innocent human life mourn the loss of longtime Northern Kentucky Right to Life Founder & President, attorney Robert (Bob) Cetrulo who died Thursday, October 27th.
“Bob led formidable efforts to educate, legislate, and demonstrate against all offenses to the sanctity of human life,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati.
“He inspired and encouraged many to stand vigilant for uncompromising human life protections no matter what the cost.”
Bob led Northern Kentucky Right to Life since its founding in 1971. He has litigated, spoken on, and written about the bioethical issues of our times, notably in his book That Reminds Me of a Story: Reflections of a Pro-Life Warrior.
Bob ensured a still-existing block of pro-life elected officials in Northern Kentucky, monitoring legislation affecting human life protections in both Kentucky and Ohio, as well as nationally. He was one of the founding members of Helpers of God’s Precious Infants Saturday prayer vigils in front of Cincinnati Planned Parenthood’s abortion headquarters on Auburn Ave., which still continue.
In his book review, Mitchell Kalpakgian, Ph.D., said in reference to Bob, “A pro-life warrior seeks the truth, loves the truth, defends the truth, and suffers for the truth in imitation of St. Thomas More who never valued human respect, ‘the most pervasive sin in the world today,’ above God’s absolute truth.”
Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati extends sincere condolences to Bob Cetrulo’s immediate and extended family and friends.
