2 Weeks Until Election Day: Here’s What You Need to Know About The #OHSEN Field and Abortion
October 24, 2023
Columbus, OH – With two weeks until election day and Ohioans already voting to protect abortion access and overturn Ohio’s current dangerous abortion ban, here’s what you need to know about the #OHSEN field’s dangerous positions on abortion:
- The entire #OHSEN primary field opposes the November amendment and supports upholding the current restrictive law in Ohio – which bans abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest.
- Bernie Moreno supports a national abortion ban and does not support exceptions for rape, incest, or life of the mother.
- Frank LaRose supports a national abortion ban, opposes exceptions for rape or incest, and celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade. LaRose spearheaded an August election to benefit special interests and make it harder to pass Issue 1 in November – admitting it was “100%” about abortion. When that amendment flopped, Frank LaRose “twist[ed]” the ballot language to purposefully mislead and “confuse” Ohioans. LaRose also said he supports Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s blockade of top military confirmations – saying Tuberville’s position is “the same position I would support in the Senate.”
- Matt Dolan celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade, calling it “exciting.” Dolan has said defeating the November amendment is a “priority” and is open to supporting a national abortion ban.
“Every Republican running for Ohio’s Senate seat supports dangerous abortion bans – including bans with no exceptions for rape or incest. With Ohioans already voting to overturn the state’s dangerous ban, it’s clear no one in this field is fighting for Ohioans,” said ODP spokesperson Reeves Oyster.
