New bill would push anti-abortion beliefs, create 'culture of life'

A bill that would require Ohio public schools to teach students about fetal development, pregnancy and abortion is drawing fire from critics who say some Republican lawmakers are trying to push their anti-abortion beliefs onto children.

House Bill 90, introduced by Rep. Niraj Antini, R-Miamisburg, would require third- through 12th-grade students to be taught in science and health classes about “the humanity of the unborn child” and given information about prenatal health. Instructional materials would be developed by the Ohio Department of Health.

Calling the proposal “counterproductive and harmful,” Gary Daniels, a lobbyist for the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio, told the House Health Committee on Tuesday, “It is not meant to legitimately accomplish anything productive in Ohio but is, instead, only useful to satisfy a small segment of voters.”

Supporters “want to commandeer multiple state agencies and all public schools to deliver slanted, incorrect, harmful and unscientific information across the state,” Daniels said.

1. Ha! In 1975, in my co-ed sex ed class taught by the HS football coach,

the first words out of his mouth were "I know at least half of you are doing it. Don't bother lying to me. My job is make sure you don't get pregnant before you can afford a baby and/or you don't catch VD."

And we were off and running! I never missed a class.


This OH law is ridiculous

3. Totally ridiculous and blatantly biased

This does not belong in classrooms starting with 8 year olds and does not reflect the beliefs of the majority of Ohioans. Our state legislature is so ridiculously gerrymandered full of these idiotic Pence clones, it’s absurd. If I had a kid in school and they were teaching this I would go down there and raise holy hell.

Ohio’s GOP dictators — taking us back to the dark ages day by day. I can’t wait for a new district map to be drawn.

4. How about an exemption to opt out of this indoctrination?

Alternative subjects could be something useful like critical thinking

5. Culture of life.

And yet that state does premeditated murder. You might know it as "the death penalty".

Doesn't sound like much of a culture of life to me.
