53% : Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser issued a statement describing Tuesday as a "sad day for Ohio" that serves as "a warning for pro-life states across the nation.""Millions of dollars and liberal dark money flooded Ohio to ensure they have a path to buy their extreme policies in a pro-life state," she said.
50% : Pro-life advocates are intensifying efforts against an Ohio ballot initiative that would establish a right to abortion in the state's constitution.
49% : He predicted that "Ohio voters, if properly informed of how awful this proposal is, will defeat it."While pro-life advocates condemned the results of Tuesday's vote, President Joe Biden issued a statement praising the result.
45% : With a simple majority needed to pass, a poll of 500 likely voters conducted from July 9-12 by USA Today and Suffolk University found that 58% of respondents would vote to support an amendment establishing a right to abortion in Ohio while 32% would oppose it.
43% : This measure, if passed, could not only overturn basic protections for children in the womb, but it could also prevent safeguards such as parental consent requirements for abortion or prohibitions on taxpayer funding of abortion."
42% : Dannenfelser's use of the term "ostrich strategy" refers to the phrase coined by the advocacy group following the 2022 midterm elections to describe unsuccessful Republican candidates who wound up "burying their heads in the sand and running from the issue [of abortion], allowing their opponents to define them."
41% : They are concerned about a November ballot measure that aims to establish a right to abortion in the Ohio Constitution.
37% : This extreme proposal would legalize abortion in many cases until birth," Nelson said.
30% :The effort to establish a right to abortion in the Ohio constitution marks the latest attempt to ensure access to abortion at the state level following the U.S. Supreme Court's June 2022 Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization decision determining that the U.S. Constitution does not contain a right to abortion.
29% : In a statement shared with The Christian Post, Human Coalition Action Executive Director, the Rev. Dean Nelson, urged pro-lifers to channel their outrage over the defeat of Issue 1 into ensuring that the constitutional amendment to establish a right to abortion in Ohio fails.
