It is really just incredible.
Here we have students who cannot read or write or compute, and the brilliant legislators in New York want them to spend time learning how to properly get rid of unwanted children.
After two young moms recently abandoned their newborn babies -- one of whom did not survive -- New York officials are proposing that high school curriculum include lessons on what mothers can do if they give birth to a baby they don't want.
Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes, State Sen. Eric Adams and State Assemblyman Hakim Jeffries are proposing state legislation requiring the change to high school health curriculum.
The officials envision students being taught in public school about so-called "safe haven laws," which allow a parent to leave a newborn anonymously without prosecution as long as the newborn is abandoned in a safe way.
Parents do not face charges if they bring a newborn to a hospital, police station or fire station that is staffed.
I hear they are calling the curriculum "Babies Don't Belong In Dumpsters 101".
I don't know what is sicker - that the kids would be mandated to sit through this curriculum or that parents are not teaching their children any sense of human decency or morality such that these kids end up dumping their own kids in the garbage!
Our Republic is certainly doomed.
There are some really good comments to that article - I feel that I must repost a couple:
"the statistics are worse (ABC News, not exactly a racist outfit). By the way, statistics like this aren't racial, they are just statistics. "Specifically non-Hispanic Blacks have a 59.8% abortion rate. Hispanics have a 41.3% abortion rate. Asians have a 22.7% abortion rate. And non-Hispanic Whites have a 20.4% abortion rate." (January 09, 2011 new report ABCLocal NYC) I am so bored with cries of racism that replace real discussion because democrats, progressives, and liberals are so ill prepared to engage. I guess it's just easier to accuse everyone of racism, homophobia and hate speech." - Theodore Baar · American College of SwitzerlandHow utterly utterly sad.... and tragic.... and infuriating.
"Amen to that! You just lifted the rug on the dirty little 'progressive' secret. Margaret Sanger was all about getting rid of the 'undesirables' in society. What she accomplished is legal genocide in the Black community promoted by the liberals and disguised as choice. Now they are working on the Hispanics. If these girls would have killed their babies a couple of months earlier it would have been legal and they would have been called courageous. We have to ask the hard question, what has sex ed accomplished in all the years it has been implemented. I say more of the same and this BS curriculum about where to dump your unwanted baby will just bring about the dumping of more unwanted babies. Liberal policies have a way of going full circle and slapping them on the ass because they are always short sighted and never consider the big picture or unintended consequences. Liberalism is a mental illness. Look at what it has done to our society and country as a whole." - Judith Kappus Bradley
Thank a Progressive.
