    Historically there has been issues with these pro-life groups giving out wildly inaccurate depictions of fetal development. Not appropriate for school.

    Gee, do you really believe that any pro-choice group actually shows pictures of aborted fetuses? I'd like to see documentation of that. Seems to me, pro-choice groups do their damnest to ensure nobody even mentions a fetus, let alone pictorally documents it, when espousing the virtues of abortion.

    I have no clue - which is why I'm asking about it.

    None of this is an issue where I live (you know - eons ago when I was in highschool, and now)

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    And we sure wouldn't want any other views to be expressed that aren't in lock-step with the "wildly inaccurate" ones espoused by the teaching unions that run education and curriculum these days.

    Conservatives have no basis in school. Just wait until the real world and leave academia for liberals.

    Yeah, that's what kindergarten is about. You betcha.
    Obviously after ABCs you go into mocking Bobby because his family is different and everybody knows it. After that, we can mock the kids whose parents are divorced because that doesn't fit into our little Leave it to Beaver fantasy.

    Furthermore, I agree with the principal's decision. The school should not take a position on either side of such a politically charged issue. There's nothing wrong with discussing the political issue, but it should be done at the appropriate times, with fact based literature. A student pro-life group setting up displays at lunch time does not meet those standards.
    Your entire post is total unmitigated bull**** and doesn't contain a single fact. First off, it's a high school so how would the principal say it's okay to discuss homosexuality with KINDERGARTENERS? Secondly you don't know if their pro-life club's literature is factless or not. You just assume it is.

    If it is about development then it belongs in the biology class and presented by a competent teacher not a senior student with an agenda.

    2. What was on the poster boards?
    Good question. Perhaps that should be established first before comments are made.

    3. Don't groups sanctioned within a high school have teacher advisers?
    Not necessarily and especially not in case of a group with an agenda not shared by most.

    2. Were the students just educating on the levels of gestation?
    It is not the students' role to educate. I hardly think they are qualified.

    3. Why is the development of a child in the womb, "controversial"?
    That ini itself is not, but misrepresented to further an agenda is certainly wrong.

    It certainly is told to us that it is fine to broach subjects like homosexuality to kindergartners, are we to think that high school students aren't equipped to see how a baby in the womb develops?
    That is nonsense. In the least homosexuality is a reality that some kindergartners live with, having same gender parents, and question. Fetal development was not the issue here, only a misrepresentation buy you.

    Odd.
    Exactly my thought. Seems that type of religious tripe should remain in the private realms, I guess if a Pro-Choice group is also allowed, .....nah! neither should be at a public school.
