What is Issue 1? (August Edition)

View descriptionShare

*This episode was corrected on July 21, 2023 due to an erroneous statement made about Issue 1!

On Tuesday, August 8, Ohioans have the opportunity to protect our state’s governing document from the deadly agenda of Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and other radical pro-abortion groups as they attempt to create a right to abortion up to birth. Issue 1 on the Special Election ballot will allow voters to elevate the threshold to amend our state Constitution from a simple majority to 60 percent of the vote.

This week on The Narrative CCV President Aaron Baer, Policy Director David Mahan, and Communications Director Mike Andrews unpack what Issue 1 really is and the arguments for supporting it. 

In the news:

  • The United States Supreme Court released a landmark 6-3 decision in 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis, reaffirming that the government cannot force artists, or anyone, to say something that they don’t believe.
  • Two other major decisions released by the Court preserved the American promise for another generation.
  • Ohio’s 2024-25 state budget was passed! The guys unpack this major victory for school choice, making all Ohio students eligible for EdChoice, as well as the other pro-family wins included in the new budget.
