Ohio anti-abortion group to replace exec. director

Published: Thu, December 29, 2011 @ 1:40 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio Right to Life is seeking a new executive director after a tumultuous year of feuding inside the anti-abortion community.

In a statement today, board chairman Marshal Pitchford said the opening follows a decision to elevate current director Mike Gonidakis into a new role. He will be the group’s point person on national issues, oversee its political action committee and advise staff on state legislative matters.

Pitchford characterized the move as “strategic restructuring” of the state’s oldest and largest anti-abortion group.

Gonidakis’ leadership has been criticized by some anti-abortion activists who have defected from Right to Life this year. They’ve joined forces with a rival coalition backing a controversial bill banning most abortions at the first detectable fetal heartbeat.

Ohio Right to Life declined to endorse the pending measure.

What a waste of time and money. All these groups do is provide a hot button topic during election seasons and then get legislation submitted that only takes up time and effort politicians can be doing something else. Of course if we had real adults representing us we would do away with all this nonsense, instead we have a bunch of career crooks taking money from special interest groups.
