Ohio voters pass amendment to enshrine in state constitution legal abortions up until BIRTH
11/19/2023 // Ethan Huff // Views

Abortion is now even more legal in the state of Ohio than it was prior to the Supreme Court's repeal of Roe v. Wade.

The voter-passed Issue 1 initiative, which is now permanently enshrined in Ohio's state constitution, allowing for abortions to occur in the Buckeye State all the way up until birth, which is basically infanticide under another name.

"It's pretty clear that this constitutional amendment just goes farther, much further than what the average Ohioan approves," commented Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican whose party also argues that Issue 1 goes "too far."

"If a voter is comfortable with abortion up until the time of birth, they're probably going to be okay with this amendment – if they're comfortable with parents not being involved in the most important decision their daughter will ever make or certainly has made up until that point in her life. If they're okay with that, then they should vote for this."

ACLU spent tens of millions of dollars to get Issue 1 passed in Ohio

On the Sunday prior to the vote, DeWine appeared on Fox News to explain why he believes Issue 1 is "a radical proposal" regardless of where a person stands on the issue of abortion.

"If you look at Issue 1, it's a radical proposal, and whether you're pro-choice or pro-life, it just goes much, much too far," he said. "It would enshrine in our Constitution the right to have an abortion up until birth, any time during the pregnancy."

"Second thing it would do is threaten a law we had on the books for many years requiring parental consent if we're dealing with a minor. The lawyers who wrote this were mindful for what they were doing. It is a radical proposal that does not fit Ohio."

It was the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that is largely responsible for Issue 1's passage. The group spent tens of millions of dollars in Ohio advocating for its passage, having previously argued that the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade requires the passage of an amendment such as this to enshrine the "right" to abortion in the state constitution.

We are told that the ACLU heavily manipulated the vote on Issue 1 in Ohio by paying people from other states to spread lies about the true nature of the amendment, which is much more serious than many people think.

"The ACLU paid out-of-state signature collectors to lie to Ohioans about their dangerous amendment that will strip parents of their rights, permit minors to undergo sex change operations without their parents' knowledge or consent, and allow painful abortion on demand through all nine months," says Protect Women Ohio spokeswoman Amy Natoce.

The latest count, which shows greater-than 95 percent of the votes in as of this writing, shows that Issue 1 passed in Ohio with 56.6 percent for and 43.4 percent against.

As is usually the case, urban areas of the state like Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Toledo all leaned in favor of the amendment while the more rural areas largely voted against, with a few exceptions.

Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) saw the most support for Issue 1 with 74 percent of voters voting in favor of it and 26 percent against, followed by Franklin County (Columbus) with 73 percent of voters in favor of and 27 percent against.

Conversely, Mercer County, a rural county that abuts Indiana, saw the least support for Issue 1 with 21 percent of voters voting for and 79 percent voting against.
