Ohio residents may vote on abortion rights in November, according to The Hill.
The vote was cemented after Ohio’s Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose certified 496,000 valid signatures in support of the decision. Before the state can place abortion access in the state constitution, they will need to defeat a separate measure — Issue 1 — during a special election on August 8.
Issue 1 makes it far more difficult to enshrine any amendments into Ohio’s constitution. Groups like Ohio Right to Life said Tuesday that “every pro-life Ohioan” to vote yes “to ensure that our Constitution, our preborn, and our families are protected.”
Ohio Is A Test Case For America
Every state that voted in 2022 to allow abortions passed the law. But Ohio passed a six-week abortion ban shortly after Roe v. Wade was overturned, but a state court placed the ban on hold.
If these votes come to pass, then children up to 24-weeks old could be killed across the state. (LEARN MORE: 32,000 Fewer Abortions Happened After Roe v. Wade Was Overturned, Report States)
