“He voted for the most pro-abortion piece of legislation to ever pass Congress. Anyone who would vote for such a piece of legislation we would not consider pro-life,” said David O’Speen, the executive director of National Right to Life. “His overall voting record was 40% pro-life, anyway. So he voted against the pro-life side in Congress more than half the time.”
Another problem for Driehaus is the Cincinnati tea party, which has mobilized entirely around his health care vote. Several factions have held rallies and protests against him, and those activities will only become more vigilant into the summer and fall.
Driehaus called such opponents of the health care bill “opponents of reform” who are responsible for a “campaign of misinformation, scare tactics, and obstructionist legislative practices.”
