Columbus, OH — Today, Ohioans’ voices were heard loud and clear as Secretary of State Frank LaRose announced voters will decide on a woman’s right to choose this November. A bipartisan coalition of advocates and volunteers worked for months to collect the signatures of nearly 496,000 Ohioans to place reproductive rights, including allowing a woman to choose if she has an abortion, on this November’s ballot. Applauding the announcement, Mayor Ginther issued the following statement through his reelection campaign.
“Today is a win for democracy, and I applaud Columbus neighbors who joined a statewide, bipartisan campaign to place reproductive rights on the November ballot. Radical lawmakers have heard us loud and clear: Ohioans believe a woman should have access to a safe and affordable abortion under Ohio law. This is a belief I’ve held for decades, and I won’t stop fighting until that right is protected in our Constitution,” said Mayor Ginther.
“Yet, today’s decision means the fight for reproductive freedom is still far from over. Ohioans must soundly defeat the blatant and extreme power grab that is Issue One this August, giving reproductive rights a fair election in November. It should be clear this summer’s special election is simply for special interests, little more than a shameless attempt to silence the voices and votes of a majority of Columbus neighbors. Along with our community partners, I’ll be leading the effort urging Columbus to vote NO between today and August 8,” continued Ginther.
