The National Catholic Register has published an article outlining the importance of Catholics for Catholics upcoming Rosary Rally in Ohio.
The article, titled Celebrity-Led Rosary Rally Promotes Ballot Measure to Protect Parental Rights in Ohio’s Constitution, explains how vital this rally is.
The Rosary Rally in Cincinnati is set to take place on August 6th (click here for full details about the event), marking the most significant rally since Roe v. Wade’s overturn. The rally aims to encourage all Christians in Ohio to vote “Yes” on Issue 1 on August 8th, raising the threshold to change the state Constitution from a simple majority to 60%.
This is part of a fight over a ballot measure that would enshrine abortion in the Ohio Constitution and limit parents’ legal right to consent to procedures. Critics argue that the amendment would remove the parental-notification requirement for minors who want to have an abortion or so-called sex-change operation. Catholic leaders, including actor Jim Caviezel and Planned Parenthood-worker-turned-pro-lifer Abby Johnson, will be featured at the rally.
After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the abortion fight has moved to individual states, with California, Michigan, and Vermont amending their constitutions to make abortion a right, free from parental rights or legislative restrictions. Abortion groups, including Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, are pouring money into Ohio through advertisements and celebrities urging a “No” vote on August 8th to supposedly “protect the constitution.” Rally organizer Joe Condit believes that the issue boils down to protecting parents and the rights they hold with their children.
A winning vote in August will help set the state for best protecting parental rights in November. Condit fears that stripping parents of their right to know what is happening with their children’s medical treatment and writing that into the state Constitution of a conservative bellwether state like Ohio will set the stage for repeating with other states. The Rosary Rally will unite Christians and counter the campaign of misinformation regarding parental rights and destroying families.
