(Cleveland Plain Dealer) A proposal to amend the Ohio Constitution to classify abortion as aggravated murder has been presented to the Ohio attorney general for review.
Petitions were submitted Friday to Attorney General Mike DeWine's office -- the first step in a long process to reach the Ohio ballot. DeWine must decide whether the proposal moves to the second step by Monday.
A proposed constitutional amendment would not go on the ballot until at least 2017.

The proposed constitutional amendment would "prohibit abortion of all unborn human beings, without exception, and classify it as aggravated murder in the state of Ohio."
