On “Fox News Sunday” this week, Governor Mike DeWine (R-OH) called the reproductive rights referendum on his state’s ballot a radical idea.
Issue 1, according to DeWine, is a radical plan that goes too far for pro-choice and pro-life supporters. It would guarantee the right to abortion till birth at any moment in Ohio’s Constitution.
Second, it would endanger a longstanding statute requiring parental approval for minors. The attorneys writing this were aware that it is a radical proposition that doesn’t suit Ohio.
He said this rule has a broad exemption for the mother’s health. The Supreme Court of the United States interpreted this very broadly, and it can mean health, how many other children she has, and her income. The abortionist makes that decision without review. In practice, attorneys were careful with their words. This enables abortions at any stage, which is too far.
Reports show voters in Ohio, the latest state to succumb to pro-abortion advocates after the overturn of Roe v. Wade, decided on Tuesday to include the “right” to abortion in the state constitution.
The abortion business and the pro-life movement now face different challenges than they did before Roe v. Wade. With the shift in power from the federal to the state level, pro-abortion organizations and activists have secretly turned to ballot measures with the backing of far left-wing activists like abortion giant Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Pro-life groups are reportedly rethinking their approach to the problem in the wake of 2022 and now 2023 Ohio before bracing themselves for a deluge of ballot initiatives in 2024. For groups that have spent the past half-century fighting to overturn Roe v. Wade, the challenge now is to become as well-organized and adequately funded as their opponents without compromising on the belief that life begins at the moment of conception and should be protected until natural death.
