Ohio Voters Say No to Making It Harder to Protect Abortion Rights

Ohio voters have rejected a Republican motion to make it harder to change the state’s constitution. This is seen as a victory for abortion-rights supporters, as the Republican-backed move was largely seen as an attempt to derail a planned referendum to place abortion rights into the constitution. The vote was called Issue 1, and with most of the votes counted, it is projected that a majority of Ohio voters said ‘No’ to raising the threshold for a constitutional amendment to above 50% of voters. This is a victory for the pro-choice movement, and it shows that Ohio voters are still supportive of abortion rights, even after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
