On Tuesday, August 8, Ohioans have a chance to safeguard the state Constitution and ensure only the most widespread, popular ideas make it into our state’s most important document.
Unlike the U.S. Constitution, the Ohio Constitution can be easily changed. Currently, only a simple majority vote of the electorate—50 percent plus one vote—is required to amend Ohio’s governing document, making it one of the easiest in the country to manipulate.
Because of the low threshold to amend the Ohio Constitution, Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry are attempting to pass an amendment this year to legalize abortion up to birth in our state. This proposal is so radical it would even allow a minor to get an abortion without her parents’ knowledge or consent.
