WKYCJonathan Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law, said he does not believe the new proposed constitutional amendment legalizing abortion would supersede current parent consent laws already in place. “Issue 1 doesn’t explicitly mention parental consent,” Entin said. “It is not likely that Issue 1 would override Ohio’s parental consent law. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld that law in a 1990 case and a similar Pennsylvania law in 1992. Those decisions came down long before Dobbs, at a time when there was a strong federal constitutional right to abortion.”
