Ohio Adds A Horrifying “Right” To Its Constitution

Ohio voters codified an alleged “right” to abortion in their state constitution Tuesday night, marking another state-level win for pro-abortion groups after Roe v. Wade’s overturn last year.

Polling sites in the Buckeye State closed at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time. An hour later, Dave Wasserman of the Cook Political Report projected passage of the constitutional amendment, called Issue 1, with 60 percent in favor versus 40 percent against based on early returns.

The amendment supersedes laws passed by Ohio’s legislature, making it nearly irreversible barring another future ballot initiative. Its adoption comes after voters rejected an August amendment to raise the threshold for passing constitutional changes from 50 percent plus one to 60 percent, which would’ve posed a bigger obstacle for Issue 1.

Pro-abortion organizations had invested heavily in framing “yes” on Issue 1 as a vote for “freedom,” utilizing conservative imagery of opposing government overreach plus mentions of “faith” and “family” to build support. Similar branding strategies aided ballot victories in Kansas and Michigan this midterm cycle.

Critics had warned the intentionally broad measure threatens parental consent laws, enables later abortions, and even empowers minors to access transgender procedures without parental approval. The Republican Governor and some legal experts referenced Issue 1’s use of “individual” rather than “woman,” arguing it could allow minors to get abortions without consent.

Left-leaning fact checkers contended Issue 1 won’t impact parental rights, partial-birth bans or transgender minor procedures. In a televised debate, a pro-abortion advocate insisted it simply removes politicians from reproductive healthcare choices.

But when local media asked about parental consent laws, the ACLU vaguely suggested those statutes could be unenforceable under Issue 1’s provisions.

Ohio’s Attorney General analyzed the amendment, concluding the expansive language leaves outcomes uncertain around laws like parental notification. He said Issue 1 likely overturns pre-viability and partial-birth restrictions.

The ACLU of Ohio and Planned Parenthood helped craft Issue 1’s original broad terminology establishing a right for an individual’s reproductive medical treatment including abortion.

Out-of-state groups massively outraised Issue 1’s opponents, led by a $5.3 million donation from an Arabella Advisors’ dark money fund. The ballot fight illustrates abortion’s enduring role as a pivotal wedge issue.

    1. Lets Desecrate the Democrats this election, once and for all! Democrats are not a “party”, they are Socialist/Communists out to change America, led by Brarrack Obama! Biden is Obama’s puppet, and All of the FBI, DoJ know it! They too have to go.

    2. I say they face judgement here on earth. Givevthese %$#@$#$ a taste of their own medicine. %$$##$#$ maggots.

  1. These people that killed their own children will be punished by God when they die and they certainly will have no room in heaven for them

  2. These folks who voted for this will now have to justify to themselves why they can’t afford to eat or pay there bills but they can still celebrate there murders of innocents.

  3. OHIO YOU ARE DISGUSTING. THERE IS NO NEED FOR ”ABORTION”’ WITH ALL THE BIRTH CONTROL THAT IS AVAILIBEL.SHAME ON ALL THESE BABY KILLERS. SHAME ON OUR COUNTRY THAT ALLOWS THESE WOMEN WHO ARE NOT WOMEN BUT DISGUSTING ABOMINATIONS. MAY THEY ROT IN HELL.

    1. Birth control IS available, BUT, birth control should be taught by the PARENTS of these young girls before they become young women. The breakdown in the Family education process is most probably the largest factor with the abortion ‘crisis’. Family values and education are the answer ONLY if both sexes are educated. Boys need to know what they are responsible for when they venture out into the world of sexual relations.

    2. I agree with you. No dam woman or girl should be allowed to do such a thing when there is to many birth control means .. Those that want to do this to innocent babies are from Satan, and they sacrifice the little ones on alters for Molech. Satan himself. OHIO HAS GONE TO THE HOGS

  4. Baby killers, because the woman didn’t take time to use contraceptives. Yeah, that a great reason to kill a child,

  5. How about education for the MALES THAT ARE INVOLVED. The blame does not ly ONLY ON THE FEMALE. The ‘men’ involved are as much to blame as the women.

    1. That’s right. I say if the baby gets killed, unborn or born, then both involve should suffer the consequences for the rest of their lives.
      I say any state that not abortion, pass a law not allowing those who committed abortion, to move into that state.

      And it will be easily found out.

  6. IT SEEMS IN OUR COUNTRY WOMEN AND MEN HAVE NO SELF RESPECT OR FOR OTHERS. IT IS ALL ABOUT HAVING FUN, NOT ONE OF THEM HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY, SEX TODAY, ABORTION TOMORROW. GIRLS KNOW MORE ABOUT CONTRACEPTIVES THEN WE KNEW 50 YEARS AGO. SO NO EXCUSES PLEASE. IF YOU WANT TO DANCE YOU HAVE TO PAY THE FIDDLER. I JUST HOPE THAT ALL THESE WOMEN WHO SO LIGHTLY GET ABORTIONS TODAY, WILL NEVER CARRY A BABY FULL TERM.

  7. Those that voted for this will have Jesus to answer to. But, of course, lefties do not truly believe so thye will get what they asked for. Thou shalt not kill!

  8. We conservatives and the stupid GOP need to wake the f**k up and realize that millions of stupid women, who vote single issue Cunt Coalition will cost us every election from now until forever over this issue! You can’t legislate morality or a conscience, so let’s cut our losses and stop trying to do the impossible. All you Bible thumpers get your heads outta ur asses and let God sort them out. Besides, why impede the most effective way to cull the liberal, moron and parasite herds?!

    1. Why don’t you go jump into a pile of quicksand you communist worm?

      And about you calling us Bible thumpers, aparengly you don’t even have a freaking clue what a Bible thumper is, fella.

      No knuckle head, you’re the ignorant fool who needs to his pull your head out your arse.

      Punk. Yeah, I said it and I meant it. So AT EASE YOUR FACE.!!!! YOU PISS ME OFF. YOU NON VETERAN.

  9. You reap what you sow! Truer words were never spoken, and yes, everything has a cost, remember that all you non-belivers, there will be a cost to abortions, and having no morals! It has already started!

  10. This article is not worth reading.

    What a bunch of hypocrits. They got a lot of nerve to call combat veterans baby killers.

  11. Men and women, boys and girls both of them need to use birth control. Birth control methods are not 100% effective, but with male and female use there is a much greater chance of not conceiving. By the way abortion is not birth control.

  12. Left wing Democrats are just to FUBAR for me to even comment about,their stupidity level is off the meter!

    1. Why don’t you go jump into a pile of quicksand you communist worm?

      And about you calling us Bible thumpers, aparengly you don’t even have a freaking clue what a Bible thumper is, fella.

      No knuckle head, you’re the ignorant fool who needs to his pull your head out your arse.

      Punk. Yeah, I said it and I meant it. So AT EASE YOUR FACE.!!!! YOU PISS ME OFF. YOU NON VETERAN.

  13. Have you folks lost your mind? Since school got taken over by liberals atheist fools. The push to destory mankind has begin. These people do not understand anything about life. You can only imagine why their mother didn’t abortion them! Where the teaching on using birth control amount the youth? Even a family doctor should be telling them if they don’t want a baby then get on birth control! Abortion a baby is MURDERED! I don’t care what you think! It written in the TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD RULES! So you atheist do not believe in afterlife? Explain to me why someone MOUTH IS LOCK OPEN WHEN THEY DIED? Seriously, try to explain that! If you never witness a person on their last breathe. Then you are a FOOL!

  14. Liberal Lefties are known for crafting vague and broad terminology in their bills and laws, so I’m not surprised how this is the case with their abortion amendment to follow suit. This is nothing less than murder of convenience for godless individuals since their conscience is seared with a hot iron… metaphorically speaking.

  15. SAD ALL THIS WOMEN ”’POWER”’ ”MY BODY”’ IN THE END IT IS THE WOMEN WHO HAS TO PAY THE PRICE. BECAUSE WOMEN DO NOT THINK ,MEN DO NOT CARE ABOUT CONSEQUENCES. IT IS ALWAYS UP TO THE WOMEN WHO ARE STRONGER THEN MEN, HAVE MORE BRAINS THEN MEN, MORE RESPONSIBILITY, WELL IN MOST CASES. WOMEN ARE TO EASY THESE DAYS, SHAME ON THEM. THINK BEFORE YOU DO, IN THE END YOU WILL TURN IN TO A KILLER,PLEASE NEVER SAY MY BODY, MY DECISION. IT IS SICKENING TO HEAR. WE TALK ABOUT LOOSE WOMEN, IN THE END MOST WOMEN ARE LOOSE, YOUR BODY IS A TEMPLE, BUT MOST WOMEN DO NOT RESPECT THIS BODY, USE IT LIKE A CHEAP PIECE OF MEAT.MEN USE YOU FOR THEIR OWN GRATIFICATION, FORGET YOU RIGHT AFTER, SO STOP MAKING YOURSELF CHEAP. ALWAYS USE BIRTH CONTROL.
