Law’s Jonathan Entin investigates confusion relating to parental rights and Issue 1

Potential impact on parental rights if State Issue 1 passes
Spectrum NewsJonathan Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law, said there is still some confusion about how parental rights could be impacted if State Issue 1 passes. “Now, we don’t know necessarily what will happen with the Ohio Parental Consent Law if Issue 1 is adopted,” Entin said. “But the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld that law when there was a federal constitutional right to abortion suggests that any challenge to the Ohio Parental Consent Law under Issue 1 would face a kind of uphill battle.”
