Former President Barack Obama is once again stepping into the political arena, using his online platform to advocate for a pro-abortion constitutional amendment in Ohio. Clearly, Obama can’t resist getting involved in state-level issues, especially if it means pushing for more liberal policies. Democrats are banking on the abortion issue to secure wins in future elections, and they see Obama as their secret weapon.

In his message to Ohio voters, Obama pleaded for their support of Issue 1, which aims to enshrine abortion rights in the state’s constitution. It’s no surprise that Obama is pushing for unlimited access to abortion, even after fetal viability, because that’s what the left loves to promote. They want to strip away any restrictions on abortion, even if it means disregarding the lives of unborn children.
Under the proposed amendment, Ohioans would have the right to make their own decisions regarding abortion, contraception, fertility treatment, miscarriage care, and continuing pregnancy. Of course, it conveniently ignores the fact that abortion at any stage of pregnancy is taking a human life. The amendment does allow for some limitations after fetal viability, but only if the pregnant mother’s life or health is at risk. This vague language leaves the door wide open for late-term abortions on demand.
It’s important to note that Issue 1 was previously rejected by voters when it required a 60% majority for passage. Yet, here we are again, with Obama trying to twist the arms of Ohioans to support this extreme agenda. Thankfully, there is opposition to this radical proposal. Republican Governor Mike DeWine has taken a strong stance against Issue 1, launching his first-ever advertisement to inform citizens about why the amendment goes against Ohioans’ values.
According to DeWine, the proposal would allow abortion at any point during pregnancy, even including the gruesome practice of partial-birth abortion. It’s shocking that supporters of this amendment are willing to erase existing laws that protect innocent lives in order to appease the radical pro-choice lobby. DeWine rightly argues that this amendment would put Ohio in the company of the most permissive states when it comes to abortion. It simply doesn’t reflect the values and beliefs of the people in Ohio.
Let’s hope that Ohioans see through Obama’s rhetoric and reject this extreme pro-abortion amendment. We need to protect the lives of the unborn and prioritize the health and well-being of both mothers and their children. Ohio should not become another liberal haven where abortion is unrestricted and lives are cast aside. It’s time to stand for what is right and protect the most vulnerable among us.
