Petition Circulating Resumes and Lawsuits Begin!



The Personhood Amendment has been certified and petition circulation has now resumed!  And now we are being sued!

Personhood Ohio is being sued by Healthy Families Ohio (arm of Planned Parenthood) in the Ohio Supreme Court 

Hello friends of Personhood Ohio,

Please pray that this suit will not hold up our efforts to protect every preborn Ohioan. This will probably give us a sledgehammer with the abortion industry in the press. We will make it plain that this suit proves that the Ohio Personhood Amendment is dangerous to the abortion industry. Pray that Ohioans will be offended that the abortion industry doesn’t want to let them even gather signatures for protect the preborn or to vote on the subject of abortion. (They even requested the Personhood Ohio pay for their attorney’s fees!).

With God, all things are possible – especially His will, and it is not the will of your Father in heaven that one of these little ones should perish (Matt. 18:14).

On what basis is PPFA filing the lawsuit? When is a ruling expected?

I found an article which said this:

"Opponents argued that the amendment should be split into two issues because it seeks to change two parts of the constitution."

The claim is completely ludicrous. The amendment only adds two sentences to the Ohio Constitution, both of which would be contained in Article I, section 16.

Patrick also told us that Jon Husted and Mike DeWine are named in the lawsuit. They both voted to approve the ballot language.
