Ohioans recently rejected a proposal to raise the bar from a simple majority to having to garner 60 percent of the vote to make changes to the state constitution and we're talking about it with Cedarville University's Dr. Mark Caleb Smith. What impact will this make on pro-life initiatives in the state? Will this rejection impact other states? It's a closer look with a Biblical perspective on Issue 1 with regular guest Dr. Mark Caleb Smith.
