    Surge Summary: An upcoming vote in Ohio could change state constitutional amendment policies. If passed, this move (“Issue 1”) will hamper efforts of abortion and transgender extremists to enshrine their radicalism into the state’s fundamental legal structure. Sensible people must come out and vote August 8!

    “Ohio voters will have an opportunity to save their state from the ravages of the Sexual Revolution by changing the system for amending their state constitution,” said Ruth Institute president Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

    “Currently, the Ohio constitution can be amended by a simple majority (50.01%) of voters in a statewide election. This allows for all kinds of mischief by special interest groups fueled by out-of-state funding.

    Looming over the horizon on the November ballot is the extreme anti-life constitutional amendment supported by Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.

    “Pro-abortion advocates know that if their proposal passes in November, numerous pro-life laws, duly enacted by the state legislature and operating successfully for years, will be wiped out in one stroke,” Morse said.

    According to one legal analysis: “The proposed amendment would outlaw virtually any restrictions on abortion and all other procedures, including sex-change surgeries, that touch on reproduction, for both adults and minors. It would cancel out not only parental-consent laws but also mere parental notification for minors’ abortions or sex-change surgeries; strike down health protections for people of all ages who undergo these procedures, including requirements that a qualified physician perform them; and erase any meaningful limits on late-term abortions.”

    “The Abortion Lobby is hoping to change the constitution, by a simple majority, to create an environment where all these laws, which were enacted under the Roe v. Wade regime, will be swept away,” Morse said. “Simple things like parental notification will never be resurrected except through amendments to the Ohio state constitution. And the Abortion Lobby is hoping no one will notice.”

    “To amend the U.S. Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of each house of Congress, followed by ratification by three-quarters of the states. The Founding Fathers established this rigorous procedure to prevent the passage of frivolous amendments.”

    “The US Constitution has been amended only 27 times in 235 years. Meanwhile, Issue 1 is the 270th proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution since their constitutional convention in 1912. Having a higher vote margin for constitutional amendments than for ordinary legislation is just common sense.”

    “Since the repeal of Roe v. Wade, extremist groups have targeted states with constitutions that are easy to amend to enshrine abortion on demand throughout pregnancy and ‘transgender’ surgery for minors in state constitutions.”

    “Passing Issue 1 on August 8 will help to ensure that the state’s constitution is amended only in a calm and deliberative manner, and not in an atmosphere of panic generated by lobbyists for the Sexual Revolution,” Morse concluded.
