Ohio Republican: Fight Against ISIS ‘No Different’ Than Fight Against The ‘Evil That Is Abortion’

Janet Porter, a Republican activist who has been trying for years to get the Ohio statehouse to pass her radical anti-choice “Heartbeat Bill,” held a rally this week featuring State Representative Matt Lynch, who compared the fight against ISIS to the fight against abortion.

They are “not dissimilar,” Lynch stated. “As a nation, as we’re aroused literally to move Heaven and earth to combat this evil on the other side of the world, we’re blind and we’re silent to the twenty thousand plus deaths that are occurring, seventy a day, right here in the state of Ohio.”

“We have to have the courage to understand that the moral right against evil in the Mid-East is no different than the moral fight against evil right here in the state of Ohio and that evil is abortion,” Lynch added.

Earlier this month, Glenn Beck released a video supporting Porter’s bill, which would ban abortion as soon as a fetal heartbeat can be detected – which can be as early as 18 to 24 days after conception.

“I hope, by now, you’re aware the elected officials in Columbus haven’t done the things that you’ve hired them to do,” Beck said. “They say they’re pro-life, but they have held a pro-life Heartbeat Bill hostage for four years.”

“You’ve called, you’ve rallied, but it’s time to go over their heads,” Beck said. “And I mean way over their heads and make an appeal – not to the courts – you’re invited to join pastors and leaders from all around the state for an appeal to Heaven.”
