What is the November 7 pro-abortion ballot initiative? 

Ohioans for Reproductive Freedom (a group formed by ACLU of Ohio, Abortion Fund of Ohio, New Voices for Reproductive Justice, Ohio Women’s Alliance, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio, Preterm-Cleveland, Pro-Choice Ohio, and URGE) proposed an amendment to the Ohio Constitution for the November election which is ambiguously worded.

This bill (among other things) would remove all of Ohio’s existing abortion laws. It will:

  • Legalize abortion up to moment of birth  
  • REMOVE PENALTIES for those assisting in abortions and gender treatments
  • REMOVE Down Syndrome Protection Act, 24 hour waiting period, and more
