“Ohio women need to reject the abortion industry’s dangerous amendment, which would outlaw basic health and safety protections for women, eliminate parental notification and consent laws that protect minor girls, and allow painful abortions up until birth in our state.”

The anti-parent ACLU and supporting groups are continuing their all-out assault against parental rights in Ohio. Despite claiming that Ohio’s proposed ballot initiative doesn’t abolish parental rights, newly-surfaced tweets from Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity (URGE), a member of the Ohioans for Reproductive Freedom coalition, show the organization’s extreme views on parental rights and further uncover their long-term goal to completely cut parents out of their children’s lives.
For years, URGE has publicly called for the abolishment of parental rights laws:
“It’s time to END parental involvement laws,” the group said in a tweet.
“We need policies that get rid of parental involvement laws so that young people can access abortion without unnecessary restrictions,” another tweet noted.
“END PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT LAWS,” said a 2020 tweet.
“…parental involvement laws are unethical and must be abolished.”
And, the group even used International Cat Day as a hook to note that parental involvement laws should be ended “MEOW!”
URGE’s radical views don’t end there. URGE supports allowing doctors to assist minors with “gender-affirming surgeries and care” and opposes laws that would require school personnel to notify parents of their child’s gender dysphoria.
It’s no surprise that URGE has aligned with groups like the ACLU to push an anti-parent amendment in Ohio. The ACLU has its own history of fighting against parental rights. For decades, they’ve worked to systematically dismantle parental consent and notification laws in states across the country.
It’s time to take these groups at their word.
Protect Women Ohio is calling out groups like the ACLU and URGE who want to cut Ohio parents out of their children’s lives in a new video.
