Tomorrow: Ohio, Vote Yes on Issue 1

Tomorrow (Tuesday, August 8th) is Election Day!

By voting YES on Issue 1, you can make it more difficult for abortion advocates to manipulate Ohio’s ballot initiative process and institute their radical abortion agenda in Ohio. Issue 1 would raise the threshold percentage of votes required for a ballot measure to succeed from 50% to 60%.

Currently, Ohio’s ballot initiative process is one of the most easily manipulated in the country. Outcomes are often swayed by which side has the most money. It should not be this way. Especially when we are talking about the fate of vulnerable unborn babies and their mothers. 

If abortion advocates are successful in changing the Ohio state constitution, we would likely see most of Ohio’s existing protections for unborn children and their mothers struck down by the courts. This would set the stage for a huge spike in the number of abortions. We cannot let that happen.

Abortion advocates want to see Ohio become an abortion destination state now that neighboring states like Indiana, Kentucky, and West Virginia have strong protective measures for unborn children in effect. The abortion industry is deeply worried about losing its foothold in the region and, ultimately, the effect on its bottom line. 

Ohio mothers and their unborn babies deserve better. 

Defend Ohio’s pro-life protections. Vote YES on Issue 1 on Tuesday, August 8th

Polls are open tomorrow from 6:30 AM until 7:30 PM.
