Whether by allowing teens to get the COVID-19 vaccine without parental consent or giving condoms to fifth graders, leftists seek to undermine parental rights, Fox News host Laura Ingraham argued on Thursday's "The Ingraham Angle."

"None of these states allow tattoos for those under the age of 18 without parental permission, but they are allowing minors to get an experimental drug?" she asked, before moving on to discuss sexual education.

Chicago takes things a step further from reading assignments focused on sex to actually encouraging students to have sex. Free condoms for fifth graders, isn’t that nifty? Forget that this also means encouraging fifth-graders to violate Illinois law that prohibits sex with minors....and by the way, remember, one of New York's fanciest schools is teaching first graders about masturbation.

Below is a transcript of the segment:

Laura Ingraham: Now, things are so bad in my old home state of Connecticut that parents there are suing to enjoin a new law that requires kindergartners to be vaccinated, even if it violates parents' religious beliefs. But when it comes to directly violating parental rights, D.C. takes the cake. Now, in a story we brought you last night, new legislation there allows children as young as 11 years old to get any vaccine, including COVID-19s, without parental consent. The attorney representing the father who is suing D.C. in federal court over this appeared on "The Ingraham Angle" last night. 

Aaron Siri: The law actually requires the doctor, the school, the health insurance company, and the health department to all actively conceal from the parent that the child has received the vaccine. This law is not only encouraging lying, it actually mandates by law an elaborate scheme of lying to their own parent. 

Ingraham: Unbelievable. Now it's not just Connecticut and D.C. subverting parental rights; Alabama allows 14-year-olds to get the vaccine without parental consent. Oregon allows 15-year-olds to get it and in Rhode Island and South Carolina, you can get it at 16. Now, this is just unacceptable. None of these states allow tattoos for those under the age of 18 without parental permission, but they are allowing minors to get an experimental drug?

A brand-new study out of England revealing tonight that children are even more resilient to COVID than we actually thought. Some 99.995% of the 469,982 children in England who were infected during the year examined by researchers survived. But that doesn't matter to the left and it's not going to stop their anti-parental trends, which are perhaps most pernicious in our schools.

Now, if kids aren't being bombarded by non-stop hectoring on race and white privilege, they're being forced to read sexually explicit books with little to no literary value. Chicago takes things a step further from reading assignments focused on sex to actually encouraging students to have sex. Free condoms for fifth graders, isn’t that nifty? Forget that this also means encouraging fifth-graders to violate Illinois law that prohibits sex with minors. No big deal there. But parents, I got to say, don't worry, because the experts say that condoms in elementary schools will "stop the bad stuff" from happening. Now, left-wing educrats who relish pushing the sexual envelope and redefining gender have zero respect for parental boundaries. Conversations that are best left between parents and their children are being short-circuited in states like California and New York, and by the way, remember, one of New York's fanciest schools is teaching first graders about masturbation. And when adults cry foul, as we have against things like critical race theory being taught in our schools, the elites and their activist base, they move into smear mode. And, of course, they don’t hesitate to lie.
