Professors call to ‘normalize’ abortion for young people, slam parental rights laws in NYT op-ed

Two ivory-tower leftist professors from Montclair State University penned an op-ed for the New York Times calling for the normalization of abortion for young people using “vital” sex education.

Dr. Eva Goldfarb and Dr. Lisa Lieberman, both Professors of Public Health, wrote the essay arguing on Wednesday that sex education is “more vital” in the wake of the Supreme Court overturning Roe vs. Wade. They then proceeded to bash and blame “religious-right political groups” for standing against abortion as well as “accurate” sex education in schools.

“Their dangerous and cynical efforts now appear under the guise of ‘parental rights’ and ‘school transparency’ on the floors of state legislatures and at school board meetings,” Goldfarb and Lieberman charged in the New York Times missive.

The professors also slammed Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Law which has been misnomered by the left as the “Don’t Say Gay Law.” They claimed that the law deprives students of “comprehensive sex education” by denying younger children “the opportunity to learn about gender identity and sexual orientation,” knowledge they disingenuously assert is essential in warding off “sexual exploitation” of kids. Many believe it does exactly the polar opposite of that claim. It’s called “grooming.”

Goldfarb and Lieberman referred to “lies and distortion” behind parental outrage over leftist school curriculums.

The authors shredded “long disproved claims” and “stigmatizing moral and religious beliefs” that are against contraception, focus on the mental and physical consequences of abortions, and promote abstinence in teens.

The studied outrage against insufficiently detailed sex education pushed in school curriculums to little children is in actuality pitching a fit over abortions not being provided as an alternative in the event of unplanned pregnancies.

“It is imperative to dispel the misinformation young people are exposed to about the dangers of abortion,” the doctors proclaimed.

“Contrary to what many students are taught, someone is far more likely to die from giving birth than from a legal abortion. And we need to normalize the procedure for young people, since around one in four women and many trans and nonbinary people have an abortion in their lifetimes,” the professors wrote.

Both women declared the need for “accurate” sex education for America’s youth in the piece. They brought up social media where many teens and children get a form of sex education from numerous sources whether their parents want that or not. Among those sources are Planned Parenthood,, and many others.

“While social media platforms like TikTok are not a sufficient substitute for classroom-based learning… [the sources they obtain from social media] are filled with accessible, accurate and developmentally and age-appropriate information for young people,” the professors contended.

They ended their pro-abortion, pro-sex education rant with a call for progressives to rally for their cause, urging them to “fight state by state, district by district, to fend off attacks on sex education based on falsehoods and fear” and resist attempts to keep America’s young people “ignorant, disempowered and at even greater risk.”
