Wisconsin GOP tries to eradicate Contraceptives from Sex Ed Courses
This because they are concerned about jobs…
Democrats blasted a Republican proposal Wednesday to dismantle a state law that requires schools that offer sex education to include contraceptives in their lessons, branding the measure hypocritical and irresponsible during a testy public hearing.
Dozens of people jammed the proceeding before the Senate education committee. The hearing quickly became another debate over whether abstinence or contraception is more effective at curtailing teen pregnancies and sexual diseases.
One woman toted a 2-foot crucifix and a portrait of the Virgin Mary into the room. Another woman held a sign that proclaimed abstinence doesn’t work. Rep. Tamara Grigsby, D-Milwaukee, who wrote the original law, told the committee she considered bringing condoms to the hearing so Republicans could see they’re not scary.
“I feel like you’re killing my baby,” Grigsby told the Republicans on the panel. “This is a radical social agenda coming from across the aisle … I want my children to go to school and learn about something that … is based on evidence.”
