Sen. J.D. Vance (R‑OH) called Tues­day’s pro-abor­tion rights vote a “gut punch” and urged vot­ers to set their sights on the “war” ahead.
On Tues­day, Ohioans vot­ed in favor of Issue 1 to enshrine the right to an abor­tion in the state’s con­sti­tu­tion. It’s the lat­est blow to the anti-abor­tion cause. The vote was the lat­est in a line of loss­es for the move­ment since the over­turn­ing of Roe v. Wade last year, with Cal­i­for­nia, Kansas, Ken­tucky, Michi­gan, Mon­tana, and Ver­mont also pass­ing mea­sures to pro­tect access to abor­tion or block­ing attempts to restrict abor­tion. Vance, who cam­paigned against Tues­day’s mea­sure, gave a sober­ing analy­sis of the loss, urg­ing con­stituents to look to the road ahead.
