Ohio Right to Life Responds to Abortion Lobby’s Attempt to Change Ohio’s Constitution; Measure will likely have no restrictions on abortion

COLUMBUS, Ohio— Ohio Right to Life has released a statement responding to Ohioans for Reproductive Freedom hiring Mission Control, Inc. as a General Consultant to oversee their efforts to add a so-called “right to abortion” to Ohio’s constitution. The measure will likely have zero limits or restrictions on abortion, allowing for abortion up to 9 months of pregnancy.

According to their statement, the group has finished “initial language drafting” for the ballot initiative and plans to file it with the Ohio Attorney General’s office before the end of February.

Ohio Right to Life’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Range, stated, “At six weeks, a baby’s heart starts beating; at 15 weeks, he or she can feel pain in the womb.”

He continued, “Ohio is a pro-life state, and we believe in the value and beauty of every human life. Any attempt to change Ohio’s Constitution by these large out-of-state abortion groups will ultimately fail here in Ohio. We respect the dignity of both mother and child in the Buckeye State.”
