Let’s Be Clear Where Ohio Democrats Stand on Abortion

COLUMBUS—In the coming months, Ohioans from all sides of the political spectrum are going to heavily debate the ghoulish November abortion ballot initiative.


As a starting point, let’s all remember exactly where Ohio Democrats stand:



Ohioans deserve to understand the simple fact that Democrats believe there should be ZERO restrictions on abortion, so long as they can get sign-off from a Planned Parenthood abortion provider.


Allison Russo previously said that while she favors legalizing abortion with no restrictions, a Democratic plan to protect the procedure in the Ohio Constitution “may” wind up less sweeping. Now it looks like she is trying to have her cake and eat it too.


Last year, Sherrod Brown and Joe Biden made a major push to remove the Hyde Amendment, which prevented federal funding of abortion in most cases for over 40-years under presidents of both parties.


Brown has even voted to eliminate or prevent protections for children born alive after failed abortions.


While Democrats used to believe abortion should be “safe, legal and rare,” those days are now gone. Sherrod Brown’s own wife wouldn’t even give him a date until he proved his 100% anti-life record!


Bottom Line: Ohioans will reject Democrats’ radical stance on abortion—taxpayer funded, with zero restrictions.

Ohio GOP Election Day Statement

COLUMBUS—As Election Day voters head to the polls to cast their ballots, Ohio Republican Party Chairman Alex Triantafilou released the following statement:

“Issue 1 is an overwhelmingly unifying issue for Ohioans who want changes to our founding document to be widely popular, deeply vetted, and in the best interest of the vast majority of Ohioans. We encourage every Ohioan to go vote—and vote yes— on Issue 1 today.”—Chairman Alex Triantafilou, Ohio Republican Party

The Ohio Republican Party, and the “Vote Yes” coalition has mobilized thousands of volunteers, all of whom have spent months talking directly with voters about the importance of protecting Ohio’s Constitution from outside special interests.

As we said from the beginning, those same Democrat special interests have poured over $11 million into Ohio to run dishonest TV ads designed to confuse Ohio voters, and they are salivating at the opportunity to do so again. When Issue 1 passes this evening, every Ohioan can be grateful that future amendments will not be subject to political whims or policy priorities of these outside groups.

Bottom Line: Ohioans are fired up to get to the polls today, protect our Ohio Values, and vote YES on Issue 1.
