PARENTS BILL OF RIGHTS
LGBTQ groups fear unintended consequences of ‘Parents Bill of Rights’
The “Parents Bill of Rights” legislation passed by a Senate committee Monday lists a wide range of rights parents have over their children. “The bill is covering rights the parents already have, which is why it's unnecessary, except for the additional language,” said Lakey Love with the Florida National Organization for Women. But LGBTQ groups protested the bill ahead of the hearing, arguing its language is overly broad. They also fear it would make it easier for parents to object to nearly anything taught in schools. “Things like civil rights or LGBTQ rights or anything like even history on the Holocaust,” Maurer said.
