(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) A leftist organization that is pushing for an amendment that would establish a “right” to murder a baby in the womb in the Ohio constitution also has a record of statements against parents.
According to the Daily Caller, Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity is part of a ballot committee lobbying to pass an amendment to the state constitution that would support murdering an unborn baby.
“Every individual has a right to make and carry out one’s own reproductive decisions,” the amendment that may become the law states.
URGE is part of “an official partnership to get a measure on the ballot that would amend the Ohio Constitution to explicitly protect reproductive freedom for all,” along with Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio, ACLU of Ohio and others.
Aside from pushing the legalization of murder, URGE also has a record of being anti-parent. Women’s groups have previously accused the organization of cutting parents out of a child’s decision to potentially murder her unborn baby.
“Your daughter’s young. Vulnerable. Online,” a narrator says in one anti-amendment ad. “You fear the worst. Pushed to change her sex. Or to get an abortion. You have some right to help her through this. But activists want to take all that away.”
URGE itself put out a statement, in which they called to end parental involvement in decisions for matters like abortion.
“It’s time to END parental involvement laws. We’re ALL worthy of self-determination!” the group wrote in a tweet last year.
The group also made similar statements previously.
“Young ppl face unique barriers when trying to access abortion,” URGE wrote in a 2019 tweet. “We need policies that get rid of parental involvement laws so that young people can access abortion without unnecessary restrictions.”
In July 2020, the group also advocated abolishing parental involvement when it comes to abortion.
