Recently ABC News contacted our national headquarters for comment on Ohio Ballot Issue One. The approach was clear. National news organizations are awakening to the fact that what is happening in Ohio is the beginning of the 2024 Presidential Election. What happens on abortion is vital to the Progressive vote getting machine. Just ask the Governor of Illinois, who has contributed over $250,000 to pro-abortion forces in Ohio and is planning to send in more. 

What is happening in Ohio is much bigger than abortion. This is a historic watershed. This week we turn to a panel of the world's best minds on this subject for insight and inspiration.
