Abortion may be on the ballot in Ohio in November. Secretary of State Frank LaRose certified 496K valid signatures supporting the proposed constitutional amendment. Issue 1—A separate measure that would make it far more difficult to amend Ohio’s constitution must be defeated before an abortion amendment can be added. Every state that let voters decide voted to allow abortions. If Ohio voters vote the same way, abortions would be legal up to 24 weeks, despite the state’s six-week abortion ban that was passed shortly after Roe v. Wade was overturned.
