Everything You Need to Know About Our “Abortion on The Ballot” Ohio Fall Campus Tour

Caroline Wharton - 11 Sep 2023

As Ohio faces a huge and deceptive attack from the abortion lobby this November, the Pro-Life Generation is stepping in to help educate students about what’s really at stake with Students for Life of America’s (SFLA) new Abortion on The Ballot 2023 Fall Campus Tour. This effort will move across the state through this semester, hitting both schools and churches, in order to ensure that Ohioans understand and react accordingly to Issue 1, the “Reproductive Freedom Ballot Measure.” Here’s what you need to know: 

What Is This Tour About? 

The Abortion on The Ballot 2023 Fall Campus Tour is focused on exposing Issue 1 as abortion extremism that is totally out of line with Ohioans’ life-affirming views and encouraging young voters to vote “NO.” Our message on campus and in communities is that human life is always worth protecting and yet abortion, including the gruesome late-term procedure, is on the ballot through Issue 1.

If this measure is passed, here’s what it would allow: 

  • Abortion through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason 
  • Minors to obtain abortions without parental consent or notification 
  • Sexual predators to use abortion to cover up their crimes  
  • Abortionists to determine whether a mother “needs” a late-term abortion. 
  • Non-physicians to commit abortion, putting women’s health further in danger 
  • Pharmacies like Walgreens, CVS, & Rite Aid to distribute dangerous Chemical Abortion Pills
