According to Fox News, Biden administration officials have extended a White House invitation to pro-abortion student activists who organized and participated in school walkouts in response to the leaked Supreme Court draft opinion in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Parents’ rights group Parents Defending Education (PDE) obtained internal Slack messages from Generation Ratify, one of the groups which organized the walkouts, announcing the invitation.
“We are invited to the White House! A couple of days ago I received an invitation to an in-person meeting on the importance of abortion access and other reproductive care for young people with the White House Office of Public Engagement and the Gender Policy Council,” announced Rosie Couture, Generation Ratify’s executive director, via Slack.
The Generation Ratify website states, “Our mission is to build a coalition of young people across the country leading an intersectional feminist revolution that empowers and advocates for the full equality of young women, non-conforming, non-binary, femme, and Queer folx.” Another portion of their site states, “We need a mass youth mobilization to defend and expand our access to abortion.”
PDE president Nicole Neily told Fox News Digital, “This administration wants kids to carry picket signs they can’t read, and to chant slogans that they can’t write. National literacy rates are at historic lows in the wake of the pandemic … Instead of solving the problem, the Biden administration celebrates activists who encourage kids to skip school and attend protests. We need an administration focused on education, not activism.”
