COLUMBUS, Ohio, August 8, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) Local pro-lifers are seeing red after they discovered a Red Cross blood drive was held outside an Ohio abortion clinic on Tuesday.
Ruth Yorston, Director of Columbus Right to Life, was taken aback when the American Red Cross rolled onto the grounds of the facility and began its one-day blood drive.
She said that when a Red Cross worker was told that abortions were performed at Complete Healthcare for Women, where the blood drive was set up on August 7, the worker was shocked. I had no idea, he responded.
Yorston believes that the Red Cross, like many locals, was indeed unaware of the clinics use, and hopes churches, faith-based organizations, and community centers will host the drives instead.
Lets step up so that the Red Cross doesnt need to go to the abortion clinic, she said.

The American Red Cross did not immediately respond to calls from LifeSiteNews.com Wednesday afternoon.
While the Red Cross has a reputation that is hard fought and hard won, said Yorston, we encourage the Red Cross to consider who they are partnering with.
[Abortion is] contrary to what [they] are supposed to do, which is to protect life.
The same day, the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform arrived at the abortion facility to inform potential donors about the facilitys abortion business, and to ask them to donate blood elsewhere.
This one is so wild, once again I do not know who to ping out.
