Why it’s important to vote NO on Issue #1 on August 8th!

Republicans voted for a constitutional amendment to make changing the OH state constitution harder. Why? Because they are afraid of the November vote on abortion rights in the state constitution. 

They are:

  • Trying to change the rules b/c they can’t win under the present rules
  • Holding an August special election even though Gov DeWine recently signed a bill banning August elections
  • Determined to keep abortion rights out of the constitution in Nov

We are determined to stop them!

  • Vote NO in August!
  • If we win in August, we'll win in November!
