The direction of the pro-life cause is being determined right now.
This one event could determine the future of the pro-life cause.
And this one court case could very well decide whether millions of American babies live or die.
All eyes on Ohio
Since former President Donald Trump won Ohio in the last two Presidential elections, the state has appeared to be trending towards Republicans.
But the pro-life cause has yet to gain much of any traction in the state, and just suffered a huge loss on a referendum that would have protected life in Ohio.
And in a few short months, the fate of the pro-life movement in Ohio will be determined by the voters.
But the vote could be determined now rather than November.
Ohio is going to vote on a lengthy amendment to their constitution that would legalize abortion up until the moment of birth.
Here's the language of the upcoming Ohio abortion amendment. Pure evil: "Always allow an unborn child to be aborted at any stage of pregnancy, regardless of viability."

This past Thursday, the Ohio Ballot Board voted 3-2 to summarize the abortion initiative on the ballot this November.
The summary that will be on the ballot says that the proposed Constitutional amendment would, “always allow an unborn child to be aborted at any stage of pregnancy, regardless of viability [b]ut in no case may such an abortion be prohibited if in the professional judgment of the pregnant patient’s treating physician it is necessary to protect the pregnant patient’s life or health.”
Now, the state is being sued by a group of abortionists for changing the text of the ballot.
“The Amendment uses the term ‘unborn child’ four times, though it appears nowhere in the measure,” the group of abortionists claim in the lawsuit. “That fraught term is in stark contrast to the neutral, accurate, and scientifically accepted terminology that the Amendment itself uses and defines. The ballot language thus unnecessarily introduces an ethical judgment—at what stage of development a zygote, embryo, or fetus becomes a “child”—which is beyond the scope of the measure and about which Ohioans profoundly disagree.
The abortionists are also upset because the amendment covers contraception instead of just abortions.
But this summary is as accurate as you can get.
The amendment is only about the right to abort an unborn child.
This is the type of fight the pro-life movement needs to win again at the state level.
If people know what is at stake, they will choose life.
And hopefully, the courts in Ohio will uphold this summary so the people of Ohio know what they are voting for.
