Black Faith Leaders Urge Voters

More than one hundred black faith and community leaders in Ohio are urging Ohioans to vote against an upcoming ballot measure that would place a right to abortion in the state constitution, arguing that the issue is a “life-or-death” matter for the black community. Christian post dot com reports that the bipartisan group of black faith leaders organized by Choose Life Ohio released a joint letter Tuesday in opposition to Issue 1, the ballot initiative Ohioans will vote on in November.

These faith leaders are right to assert that the issue is not partisan, as they highlight the incredible impact abortion has had on black women and families. According to recent census data, Ohio’s black population is overrepresented in the state’s abortion data, which is the same situation we have here in Wisconsin.
