    Not against me. I'm pro-choice (well, in the first trimester anyway).

    Perhaps that "Libertarian" tag over to the left is confusing to you? Libertarians are typically pro-choice. They're against lifers, not me.

    Oh I understand what the First says, too bad you have no clue what it means and where it applies.

    To call it a baby, or a child, is not nonsense, it is accurate. It's not a toaster in there, nor is it an eggplant.....It is a baby.
    Well, at least in the title of the thread you posted and in your link it describes the pro life group as wanting to use a model of a life sized fetus.

    At least the proper terminology was used in the thread title and the link.

    The terms embryo and fetus are proper terms for different stages of development of an unborn during pregnancy .

    It is not propaganda.

    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    All three are unacceptable in schools and are met with consequences.
    The supreme court has ruled numerous times that students do not give up their 1st amendment rights when they walk into school. Schools can only limit speech when it comes to if it is going to cause a classroom disruption (which at lunch it isn't) or they can prove that it will cause physical harm.

    i can understand this principle but he overstepped his bounds. according to the supreme court just because something might be controversial doesn't mean that you can limit the speech of the student.

    you would be wrong and the SCOTUS has also said that you are not correct. students do not lose their 1st amendment rights when they walk into a school.

    Yet we do it all the time in schools. Many schools have dress codes, gang colors are banned, rights of free assembly are denied etc. The right to an education trumps a lot of other "rights". These are children you know. I would also be concerned that outside influence is behind this display of intolerance.

    Well in his world if you're not pro-choice, you have nothing to say about the issue, certainly nothing factual..........and therefore should just stifle yourself. Let the government determine what's factual, because in a moderate world the govt is always right.

    Actually it does no such thing. That may be your belief, as unfounded as it is and it is precisely the spreading of that mostly religious belief that is wrong.
