An estimated 5,000 Ohioans will be marching for life this Friday in the state’s capital of Columbus just one month ahead of a November election that could fatally influence the futures of many unborn children.
In a battleground abortion state where the life-ending procedure is legal up to the point of viability, all eyes will be on Ohio as residents will be voting on a constitutional amendment Nov. 7 proposing to enshrine abortion rights into law.
In a September press release, the March for Life — the pro-life organization co-hosting the march — said that speakers at the event will be educating attendees on the dangers of the November constitutional amendment.
The amendment, which says that “every individual has a right to carry out one’s own reproductive decisions,” would bring “painful late-term abortions right up until birth to Ohio, cancel parental consent protections for minors, and erase basic health and safety standards for women when it comes to abortion,” the March for Life organizers said.
