    Maybe people are worried that the presenters took some artistic liberty a when dipicting the fetus.

    Odd.
    I would imagine that both pro-life and pro-choice groups would be allowed to exist in high school.

    Nor would they permit a pro-choice group.

    I guess I'm glad my children's school district is more reasonable and not relying on extremes and shock to terrify students into various views.
    That was in the article (images of birth in the science class room and not allowing any pro-choice groups), or are you just assuming things here?

    Since the court ruling in California a couple weeks ago, school principles can violate the 1st Amendment any way they want.

    That's seems more like an assumption that proper argument as to why we should limit the political curiosities and activism of children.

    No problem. Perhaps you just aren't aware that for decades now PP has supplied public schools with lesson and course plans and curricular materials, all funded and approved by the Federal Dept of Education. This includes teaching on abortion (and you know PP isn't going to teach anti-abortion). Add into that their sponsorship of pickup vans and services.

    You may not have heard about that last as they keep it close to the vest. Any high school student who needs a ride to the clinic for an abortion can be picked up during school hours, excused from school and are given a free ride to the abortion clinic - all without the parents ever being notified.

    Here is where parents are pushing back a bit.

    One only has to look at the comments to the local news article to see why a school should not allow a student pro-life or pro-choice group to operate on campus.

    Which should include political activism as well. Seeing as an educated and participating populace is a necessity to keep a Republic.

    Here is a definition of comprehensive sex education:

    (Redirected from Comprehensive sex education)

    Sex education is instruction on issues relating to human sexuality, including human sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, sexual activity, reproductive health, emotional relations, reproductive rights and responsibilities, abstinence, and birth control. Common avenues for sex education are parents or caregivers, formal school programs, and public health campaigns. Sex education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
