    Re: Pro-Life High School Group Says Principal Banned Them From Using Life-Sized Fetus

    Well I just see that it would become divisive - creating tension when it doesn't need to be there, embarrassing students and casting guilt. Ultimately: I see allowing certain types of groups to be a form of peer pressure.

    "You're a terrible person for being 16 and pregnant and not wanting to actually birth a baby." If someone aligned with pro-life then pro-choice people might harass her and giver her a hard time for "being just a baby machine and disrespecting yourself, you're better than that"

    I was pregnant in high school and I'm glad I didn't have to take anything from my peers about it. Dealing with my parents, being forced to marry a boy I didn't love, and facing my father's church was bad enough. School was the one place where my pregnancy wasn't the center of discussions.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Having an officially recognized pro-life student group at a public school is not wise, anymore than a pro-choice student group. It opens yourself up to lawsuits like this, which takes away money used to educate those students.

    A life size photo of a first trimester fetus can be shown on a 4" X 4" placard. Is that what was being displayed?


    dont argue abortion using these kids. Stand on your own.
    I'm not arguing abortion at all. And again I see no indication that inaccurate info was being presented. Perhaps I missed that and you can point it out.

    Both PP and DARE have rolled their causes into the health curriculum at schools. They give out shockingly inaccurate info all the time. Student groups should be able to push back with accurate info.

    The pro-abortion stance has been rolled into the health curriculum. They are represented by default. Students cannot graduate without taking the health course.

    I think any rational adult recognizes this for what it actually is...and thus finds it distasteful.

    Children should not be exposed, or indoctrinated to aspects of adult life they are not ready for, or need to deal with.


    Just as we all feel younger childrenneed not know what a freakin' Blow job is...they do not need tosee abortion.

    Proof of what, that a health class is required for graduation from high school? Or that PP rolled sex ed and abortion into the health curriculum? That's all been the case for decades now.

    Btw, I see that some states have opted out of this. Texas for one is no longer requiring health class for graduation as of 2009.

    Catholic schools, homeschooling, charter schools, just get the children out of these liberal cesspools of indoctrination. What a horrible thing, some children actually believe that fetuses should be allowed to live! This is absolute blasphemy to the school administrators and the teacher's union. This terrible failure must be the parent's fault.

    Here is what you said: "The pro-abortion stance has been rolled into the health curriculum."

    Here is what I replied; "Proof"?

    I'm asking you specifically, if you have ANY proof or evidence that there is a "pro-abortion" stance in a public high school class, in this case called "health."

    If that is your opinion, I will respect that and not question it. However, if you are saying that it is factual that health class lessons have a pro-abortion stance, then I'd like to see proof of that.
