Senate Bill Controversy

A controversial Senate Bill, SB 132, is causing controversy.

Short-termed the Health Curriculum/Preterm Birth Bill, the bill is a comprehensive school health education program to be developed and taught to pupils of public schools of NC from kindergarten to ninth grade.

It includes, among other topics, mental and emotional health, drug and alcohol abuse prevention, nutrition, dental health, first aid, Preventing sexually transmitted diseases and information about the preventable causes of preterm birth, including induced abortion…

The Planned Parenthood website had this post concerning the legislation:

Mandates that NC Public Schools teach that abortions lead to future pre-term births despite the fact that this is unsupported by medical science and not recognized by the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Public Health Association or the Centers for Disease Control.

The bill passed out of the Senate on 5/13 (38-10) and has now been sent to the House.Kids Getting on School Bus
