Ohio Voters Approve Measure Guaranteeing Right to Reproductive Medical Treatment, Including Abortion, in State Constitution

Ohio voters have approved a ballot measure that guarantees the right to reproductive medical treatment, including abortion, in the state constitution. This victory comes on the heels of Tuesday's legislative elections in Virginia, where Democrats who campaigned on protecting abortion rights swept the General Assembly. The passage of Issue 1 marks another major victory for abortion-rights advocates in the fight to protect reproductive rights, which is seen as a microcosm of other closely divided states that will be critical in next year's presidential election.
