COMMENTARY: Ohio voters just took firm positions on abortion and reproductive rights and adult-use recreational marijuana Tuesday, but gerrymandered Ohio lawmakers are already planning to flout, ignore, challenge, and abuse the voters’ wishes. This is what gerrymandering brings. This is why it’s a fundamental poison in the lifeblood of our republic.
YES on Issue 1 – The Right To Reproductive Freedom With Protections For Health And Safety and An Act To Control and YES on Issue 2 – Regulate Adult Use Cannabis both WON as Ohioans made their voices – and votes – heard! Ohioans rejected the extreme republican abortion ban – 6 week ban with no exceptions for rape or incest – that Governor Mike DeWine (R) and the Ohio GOP had put into law. Women and their families with their doctors can now make their own reproductive health care choices.
