Editor:

It is with disgust I read in the Guest Column by Senator Sherrod Brown titled, "Increasing access to timely quality prenatal care."

I read of the concern for children and mothers of Ohio when just a short few months ago Senator Brown refused to de-fund Planned Parenthood, one of many providers of abortions in Ohio. As you may or may not have heard, the PP organization leadership has made many excuses to cover for the sale of aborted baby parts. Frankly I find the whole practice of abortion to be barbaric and contrary to the laws of nature and God.

Despite a bipartisan majority of the U.S. Senate's support for these political pawns of Planned Parenthood filibustered to ensure the Culture of Death keeps getting its government handout.

Senator Brown voted to block legislation that would have stripped taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood - an abortion business that takes $500 million tax dollars, murders nearly 330,000 babies, and sells them for parts to pad its bottom line each and every year. So Mr. Brown, don't brag that you are doing great things for Ohio Children and Mothers when you continue to side with the murders of our children.
