Five Members Vote to Approve
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, March 29, 2017 (Cincinnati, OH): As reported earlier, Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Seelbach introduced a resolution to honor Planned Parenthood abortionist Joann Kersh (see her listed here, along with other abortionists nationwide, including Martin Haskell). The resolution is in honor of March as Women’s History Month.
“Cincinnati Planned Parenthood boasted in a past lawsuit of killing 2600 babies per year,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “If twenty-six children died from the flu in one year in the County it would be deemed an epidemic–2600 babies’ deaths from abortion a year are met with a yawn.”
“If City Council is to recognize women for Women’s History Month,” Westwood continued, “it is more appropriate to praise a role model who upholds women’s dignity and unique ability to participate in the creative process of motherhood.”
Thank you to all who contacted City Council to voice opposition to this misdirected honor.
