Lila Rose, founder and president of the pro-life advocacy organization Live Action, took to X to express her heartbreak at the passage of Issue 1.

"As a democratic Republic, we hold in high regard the idea of majority rule. Sovereignty rests in the will of the people as expressed through free and fair elections. But majority rule is only just when the system and the law respect minority human rights."

"It is a tragedy that the people of Ohio, and the many states before and to follow them, were asked to vote on the legality of discriminately killing a class of persons based on their age," she wrote. "This is a class of persons, our youngest children, who have no vote and cannot advocate for themselves."

"When, and under what conditions, should the rule of the majority be curtailed to protect the rights of the minority?" Rose asked. "The first and most obvious answer is to protect the most fundamental human rights of the minority, most importantly, the right to life."

Rose insisted that "the pro-life movement must adapt to win," calling on her colleagues to "throw out the old playbook and dive headfirst into a strategy that can win the hearts and minds of the American people and translate into electoral victory."

She described such a strategy as "fully embracing and educating on the truth" that "human life is valuable and must be legally protected" and "abortion is a murderous act of violence."
