ACLU of Ohio attorney Jessie Hill recently admitted that passage of the dangerous constitutional amendment proposed by the ACLU, abortion industry insiders, and their out-of-state allies “would mean that laws that conflict with it cannot be enforced, should not be enforced.”
Courts across the country have already interpreted language similarly contained in the proposed Ohio amendment to strike down parental notification and consent laws, erasing parents from the picture and forbidding them from providing consent – or even being notified – if their underage daughter chooses to undergo an abortion. Unfortunately, the Ohio amendment takes this even further. Its loosely defined language forbidding any law that “directly or indirectly” would “burden” or interfere” with “reproductive decisions” means parents would also be left blindfolded if their child chose to pursue sex change surgery.
Hill was responding to the launch of Protect Women Ohio (PWO), a pro-woman, pro-parent coalition that wants parents to remain involved in important medical decisions involving their minor children.

Protect Women Ohio is a coalition of concerned family and life leaders, parents, health and medical experts, and faith leaders in Ohio. Molly Smith, Founding Member of Right to Life Action Coalition of Ohio, Aaron Baer, president of Center for Christian Virtue, and Peter Range, CEO of Ohio Right to Life, serve as members of the PWO Board of Directors.
