14 Days Until Ohio Referendum on Reproductive Rights!

(Please let me know if there are any broken links or incorrect or incomplete information) (Thanks to RandySF for the info)

What’s at stake:

Voters in the Buckeye State will decide whether to enshrine abortion protections into the state constitution (via “Issue 1”) or be the first to reject an abortion-rights measure since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

Anti-abortion groups are banking on Ohio to end the movement’s run of state-level losses and create a blueprint for battles in 2024 and beyond.
