When it comes to discussing sex or contraception, anti-choice activists say that it is unacceptable to talk to a child in school without explicit parental permission. But when it comes to handing out two inch long plastic fetuses to preteens, that's perfectly acceptable.
The New Zealand Herald reports:
A Hastings family have gone to the police after their 12-year-old daughter was given a rubber foetus and anti-abortion pamphlets by protesters while walking home in her intermediate school uniform.
Jane Hannam, 12, was walking home from Heretaunga Intermediate with a friend last Thursday when they were approached by a female protester outside Hawke's Bay Hospital and given a rubber foetus and information card about foetal development.
Her parents, Brian and Zarlene Hannam, said it was disgusting that protesters would target young school-aged children and made a complaint to Hastings police.
"We just found her playing with this toy foetus," Mrs Hannam said. "It was sort of like a really soft spongy flesh-coloured foetus. I just think that's disgusting.
One protester claims that although they aren't trying to target the children, per se, it's not that big of a deal since "they can access that stuff on the computer and most of them know it anyway."
Too bad they don't apply the same rules to comprehensive, age appropriate sex education.
Oh noes! Call the police! We can't have girls learning sciencey stuff like fetal development and human biology! Sex ed is the purview of Planned Parenthood, not parents, and should only consist of learning to put condoms on bananas and circumvent parental consent laws for abortion and how to hook up with random strangers even if you're HIV positive! Girls are too weak for embryology, the only thing we should be worried about is where those strappy sandals we want are on sale! We're just sex objects, motherhood and pregnancy are for those 'other' kinds of women. SMH. We hand out these little plastic fetuses all the time when sidewalk counseling. Antilifers hate them because they're just a little too human looking and don't depict the 'blob of cells' proaborts would love to have young girls imagine unborn babies to be. Too bad for them the truth and science are on our side.
