A Request from Ohio Right to Life:
“The Ohio Ballot Board today gave the green light for Planned Parenthood’s proposed anti-life and anti-parent Constitutional Amendment that would allow abortion through all nine months of pregnancy here in the state of Ohio and take away all parental rights. After some paperwork, Planned Parenthood and their allies will begin attempting to collect the over 400k signatures they need by July to get the amendment on the November 2023 ballot.
In response to the proposed amendment, Carrie Campbell Severino, who is the president of Judicial Crisis Network (JCN) and Frank J. Scaturro, who is the vice president and senior counsel of JCN and a former special counsel to the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives wrote this legal look at the language for the National Review: https://www.nationalreview.com/2023/03/ohios-disastrous-abortion-ballot-proposal/. They wrote in part:
The proposed amendment would outlaw virtually any restrictions on abortion and all other procedures, including sex-change surgeries, that touch on reproduction, for both adults and minors. It would cancel out not only parental-consent laws but also mere parental notification for minors’ abortions or sex-change surgeries; strike down health protections for people of all ages who undergo these procedures, including requirements that a qualified physician perform them; and erase any meaningful limits on late-term abortions.
