Ohio Passes Reproductive Rights Amendment
On November 7, voters in Ohio approved a constitutional amendment to provide a state constitutional right to make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions, including but not limited to decisions about abortion, contraception, fertility treatment, miscarriage care, and continuing pregnancy.
The amendment also allows the state to restrict abortion after fetal viability, except when necessary to protect the pregnant patient’s life or health.
As of this morning, the amendment passed 56.62% to 43.38%.
