IFA State Prayer Group Sounds Alarm on Ballot Measure
Our Ohio State Prayer Leader and another IFA intercessor are using their talents to stand against this pro-abortion ballot measure.
From Live Action. In November, Ohioans will vote on Issue 1, a ballot measure that seeks to make abortion a right in the Ohio Constitution. Two women — a retired schoolteacher and freelance writer — both serve on the Ohio team of Intercessors for America, and are passionate about defending life. Together, they are educating Ohio citizens about the ballot measure.
Retired schoolteacher Kimberly Brown is the current IFA Ohio State Prayer Leader who hosts robust weekly prayer calls in which a team of dedicated intercessors unite in prayer for all issues affecting Ohio. Her team has been laser-focused over many months, interceding for Ohio in its battle to defend life and stay informed about the amendment slated for November’s ballot. …
Below, Brown shares her insights after prayerfully “sitting with, reading, and re-reading the amendment for quite some time now.” She writes of the proposed Ohio amendment language:
1. No gender is stated. No male, female, he, she, boy, girl. This opens the door to men and women, boys and girls, altering their reproductive systems according to their “rights.”
2. No age limits or restrictions is stated. This opens the door that any male or female of any age can make decisions about their body at any point in time.
3. “The State shall not…directly or indirectly…burden, penalize, prohibit, interfere with or discriminate against…” an individual person or organization helping a person make these choices and decisions.
If the State cannot intervene, then parents will not be able to intervene. …
Freelance writer and pro-life advocate Lisa Bast felt compelled to put actions to her prayers. Through the aid of an experienced videographer, Bast created a tool to carve through confusion and expose varied angles and elements of the Ohio amendment.
Her video, ISSUE 1: Ohio Call to Action, concludes with concrete avenues that those both inside and outside Ohio can use to help inform Ohioans.
