I sometimes disagree with Gayle Ruzicka. However, I do admire her work on family
I want freedom from Gayle.
TuliP dear,What if a parent does not educate their child? Should we
pass a law that they MUST do so or have a fine or their children taken away from
them? How can you ensure that the children know anything about this subject?
We can't even ensure that parents will not harm their children and thus we have
child protection laws.You do realize that allowing schools to teach
these courses does not keep you from teaching your own teenagers exactly what
you want them to know. If you wanted them to know more, you would have to SIGN
THEM UP for the sex ed courses at school. By this law, you have taken that
option away from other parents. Why?Now all parents must either be
a great parent and explain everything to their child or be a harmful parent that
does not explain anything or does not explain enough. Why is knowledge
threatening to you as a parent? As long as you have communication with your
teenager, you can guide their schooling, whether it be in sex-ed or English or
Gayle Ruzicka is no threat to anyone. Her power is amassed, like anyone else, by
others who share her viewpoints. Sex ed should be a family matter. I personally
think parents should educate themselves on the subject and then teach their
children as they are able to understand. We should never turn something of that
nature over to the "state".
You are right when you say "more teenage pregnancies will likely lead to
abortion and sexually transmitted diseases among young people." This points
out that conservative policies actually contribute to the problem. Their view
seems to be to abolish sexual activity, which will never happen, of course.
