Ohio Voters Enshrine Abortion Rights in State Constitution

Contact: naf@berlinrosen.com

Today, Ohio voters decisively passed Issue 1, enshrining the right to abortion and the broader spectrum of reproductive health care in the state constitution. Advocates have worked tirelessly to put this question on the ballot and mobilize support, and now Ohioans have helped deliver a massive victory for abortion rights.

Statement from Brittany Fonteno, President and CEO of the National Abortion Federation

Today, Ohioans have affirmed that people have a fundamental right to make their own medical decisions about abortion care—free from government interference. This victory ensures not only that Ohioans have a legal right to this important care without question, but abortion patients throughout the Midwest who live in states where access to abortion is limited or banned may also find it easier to get the care they need. We applaud the efforts of abortion advocates and allies in Ohio who have worked tirelessly to make this happen. NAF will continue to work with our members and advocates across the country to build on this momentum and fight to achieve true reproductive freedom for people across the country.

As always, we remain committed to helping anyone, no matter who they are, how much money they have, or where they live, access abortion care. Anyone in any state can call the National Abortion Hotline at 1-800-772-9100 to understand their options and get the help they need, whether it’s help finding a provider, arranging travel to another state , or funding their care.
