State to Enshrine Abortion in Its Constitution
This amendment would turn Ohio into one of the least friendly states toward the unborn. Let’s go to the Lord in prayer about this.
From CBN News. Pro-life groups in Ohio have funded a $5 million ad campaign exposing a proposed amendment that would enshrine abortion into the state constitution as a “right.”
The television and social media ads by Protect Women Ohio (PWO) will be airing over the next four weeks while a coalition of abortion rights groups will be circulating petitions, trying to get more than 413,388 valid signatures needed by July 5 to put the issue on the Ohio ballot this November, according to Statehouse News Bureau. …

Earlier this month, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost approved the language of the amendment that would make abortion a right in the Buckeye State, according to several outlets.
The amendment reads:
- “Every individual has a right to make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions, including but not limited to decisions on contraception, fertility treatment, continuing one’s own pregnancy, miscarriage care, and abortion.”
- “The State shall not directly or indirectly burden, penalize, prohibit, interfere with, or discriminate against either an individual’s voluntary exercise of this right or a person or entity that assists an individual exercising this right, unless the State demonstrates that it is using the least restrictive means to advance the individual’s health in accordance with widely accepted and evidence-based standards of care.” …
Pro-life critics are speaking out against the proposed amendment, warning the measure would outlaw any restrictions on abortion and other operations for adults and minors, including sex-change surgeries.
In an op-ed published by The National Review on Sunday, Ed Sitter, executive director of Greater Toledo Right to Life, warned if the amendment is passed, “it would make Ohio the home of one of the most extreme abortion regimes in the country. It would enshrine radical abortion policy in our state constitution and bring taxpayer-funded abortions anytime during pregnancy — yes, all nine months.” …
Ohio Pastor J.C. Church told Frontlines Ohio that this is more than simply fighting a proposed amendment, “it’s a battle of good versus evil.”
“Planned Parenthood’s insatiable lust for money knows no boundaries,” Church said. “They do not care if our state goes backward in time with this proposed amendment to the Dark Ages. … This election is all hands on deck. This is a matter of good versus evil.”
