Our lawmakers just never stop

 

The measure requires students in grades seven and higher to learn about the risk factors associated with premature birth. It originally included only abortion but was amended to include other factors such as smoking and inadequate prenatal care. Supporters and opponents dispute the scientific basis for linking abortion to premature birth. Opponents have also called the bill a politically motivated effort to rewrite the state's curriculum to support conservative ideology

 

No sh**

So this doesn't fall under comprehensive sex education?  I think the "link" issue is strangely worded, but I'm betting it's just a misinterpretation of what the bill will say.

I'm sure you are and there's nothing politically motivated about this.

 

Hopefully they will add a required teaching point showing the link between unwanted pregnancies and voter fraud as well. Can't be too careful.

Need more information on it. I don't see anything wrong with any pertinent information being taught in health class as long as it is scientifically based.

    • This is a hypothetical scenario that maybe should be taken into consideration going into the draft in April.  What part of the team would suffer the most if they lost a key player on the respective side? - If we lose Greg Olsen to injury how much of a drop off is their on offense -If we lose a Safety, DE, or LB how much of a drop off is their on defense -Personally I think the offense would loose basically 1/5 of the production and with no real depth to make an impact.
    • I used to hold out hope, but I think that it's become obvious that the organization really doesn't him like that. He worked very hard to put on a little muscle and refine his game before the past season, but still didn't get any real play, despite those in front of him playing lackluster ball. Throw in the fact that we've added another couple of suspect receivers and are searching for upgrades via the draft, I just don't believe that they believe Byrd is that guy. 
    • How about u educate yourself before being ignorant?
