Voices Issue 1 Ohio rally
Community members in Ohio are rallying for and against Issue 1, a constitutional amendment to women's reproductive rights on Election Day.
Community members in Dayton, Ohio are gearing up for Election Day, with both sides of the Issue 1 constitutional amendment to women's reproductive rights rallying for support. The stakes are high, and the results will have a significant impact on Ohio's future.
On the overpass of I-75 in Vandalia, those against Issue 1 made a final push, emphasizing the extreme nature of the amendment and its potential consequences for women's safety and reproductive rights. They are urging voters to say "no" to Issue 1.
Meanwhile, at a Catholic church nearby, another group, "Catholics for Choice," is rallying in favor of Issue 1. They are challenging the notion that the majority of Catholics oppose abortion, citing statistics that show a significant number of Catholics support legal access to abortion.
The Rev. Dr. Brian Q. Newcomb of David's United Church of Christ in Kettering is also a supporter of Issue 1, emphasizing the importance of women's right to make their own decisions about reproductive medical treatment as a basic human right.
If Issue 1 passes, it would guarantee a person's right to make their own decisions about reproductive medical treatment, including abortion, and create legal protections for those who assist individuals seeking reproductive medical treatment.
As the election approaches, both sides are urging voters to conduct their own research and make an informed decision at the polls. The outcome of this high-stakes election will have a lasting impact on Ohio's future.
