Pro-life Action needed now in Ohio!
There is a very strong chance that an amendment allowing unrestricted abortion could be added to Ohio’s constitution.
Such an amendment would nullify any and all current pro-life legislation previously adopted in Ohio. As it stands, this abortion amendment will be voted up or down by way of a vote of 50% on Ohio’s ballot during the election in November.
Current legislation proposed by Republicans called HJR-1 moves to increase the threshold for amendment passage to 60%. The passage of HJR-1 will then allow for a special election in August where Ohio voters will be asked to vote on the increase.
The passage of HJR-1 is imperative if we are to avoid Ohio becoming an abortion state. Please write letters now to ensure the passage of HJR-1.

I’ve added the below letter suggestion for guidance. Feel free to use your own or to edit this one any way you like. We want our letters to sound unique and not canned.
Dear Representative X,
I’m writing to you today to ask for your support in the passage of HJR-1 in the Ohio House. It is imperative Ohioans and their legislators do all we can to limit, if not completely eliminate, abortion in our state. The passage of HJR-1 is the next step in ensuring this.
I am extremely upset by the efforts of the pro-choice movement in Ohio to add an amendment to Ohio’s constitution securing unrestricted abortion. This simply cannot happen. Such unethical action opposes natural law that inherently protects human life.
It is my understanding that in order for this resolution to make its way to the floor of the House for a vote, 50 signatures are required on the discharge petition. If you have not signed the discharge petition, I implore you to do so. In addition, please vote for this legislation should it make its way to the floor of the House.
If you have already signed the discharge petition, thank you so much for representing your district and for respecting the sanctity of life.
