Ohio Moves Closer to Ballot Issue That Would Protect Abortion Rights - NYT

But Republicans are trying to change their own rules in order to enforce a 6 week abortion in Ohio. They've called a 'Special' Election in August to raise the threshold of voters needed to approve a ballot measure to protect abortion rights from the current 50% to 60%. Republicans are hoping that summer plans will dampen turnout so they can get away with their scheme to deny women their freedom to choose.

Ballot measures

"Supporters of abortion rights are turning to ballot measures in the aftermath of the ruling last year by the United States Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, which for 50 years had guaranteed a right to abortion in the federal Constitution. They are betting on polls showing that public opinion increasingly supports some right to abortion, and opposes the bans and stricter laws that conservative state legislatures have enacted since the court’s decision.

Republicans who oppose abortion rights — and who control the state’s General Assembly — have proposed another measure that would make it harder to pass the ballot measure.

Republican leaders in the legislature have placed a measure on the primary ballot in August that would raise the threshold required to pass any ballot measure amending the state’s Constitution to 60 percent, from a simple majority. They aimed that measure — which would require 50 percent of voters to pass — squarely at the abortion question. Earlier this year the same Republicans passed a law eliminating almost all August elections, arguing that they are expensive and have such low turnout as to be undemocratic.

While summer elections tend to have low turnouts and favor those sponsoring the measures, Republicans in Kansas who attempted to strike a right to abortion from the state’s Constitution last August failed, with an unexpectedly high proportion of residents turning out to reject it. The August measure in Ohio, however, will not specifically mention abortion, and it’s not clear that abortion rights advocates will be able to energize their supporters as effectively as their counterparts in Kansas did." - NYT
