Commenter: Parents have rights

Parents have rights

There’s no question that this bill should go into law.

for the parents that don’t mind that their young children read sexually explicit materials, they can allow that to happen. For the parents that do not want their children to be exposed to sexually explicit materials, then those parents can opt out. So there’s no need to debate whether this should go in or not because parents can decide what they want to do about it. Which is what this is all about. Giving parents rights over their own children and be able to morally guide them the way that fits for their family and their needs.
