Today marks one year since the far-right Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. The consequences of this ruling are far-reaching and have jeopardized the fundamental rights, autonomy, and lives of individuals across Ohio.
Like the majority of Ohioans, we firmly believe that reproductive care IS healthcare. No lawmaker or judge should have the power to dictate the most intimate decisions concerning our bodies and futures. That’s why Ohio Democrats have been working tirelessly to put a reproductive rights initiative on the ballot, and THIS WEEK, we turned in over 100,000 signatures from every county in Ohio.
But, anti-choice politicians in our state are ready to fight us every step of the way, and make sure this is THE issue on the ballot. Threatened by the power of the people, they’ve forced “Issue 1” on the August 8 ballot to try and sabotage the initiative petition process. We need your help fighting back, and that’s why on today’s anniversary, I’m coming to you with two requests:
ONE: If you’re able, will you please consider chipping in $5 or more to help us mobilize voters across the state? With your help, we can defend the initiative petition process and protect reproductive rights in Ohio.
TWO: If you’re ready to get involved, will you sign up to volunteer with Ohio Democrats to help turn out voters for the August 8 special election? With your help, we can ensure that the 60% threshold to pass a citizen-led constitutional amendment never, ever becomes Ohio law.
Ohio Democrats are making it clear every single day that we will NOT go back. We’re grateful to have you by our side as we fight to protect reproductive rights in our state. Together, we will defend the values we all hold dear!
Onwards and upwards,
Ohio Democratic Party
The Ohio Democratic Party is working year-round to elect Democrats who will fight for working families all over the Buckeye State. Will you pitch in $10 or more right away? Every dollar you give helps build a blue Ohio.
