In Manchester, New Hampshire, a YMCA after-school program included a field trip to Planned Parenthood.

Of course, the anti-choice nutters are screaming, and there's an investigation by the city school board now. There's even talk of "discipline" for those responsible. Heaven forbid children should actually be exposed to **shock** OPTIONS that might permit them to stay in school. Next thing you know, those heathen schools will be indoctinating the kids with SCIENCE!!!1111!!1!

Sorry, but this really bugs me.

Anyways, you can read the full CNN story here . Here's an excerpt:

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (AP) -- The city school board ordered an investigation into an after-school program run by the YMCA in which some middle school students were taken to visit a Planned Parenthood clinic.

New Hampshire Right to Life, an abortion opponent, is now asking for equal time with the seventh and eighth grade students, as well.

The visit was part of the YMCA's STAY program, for students considered at risk of dropping out of school, abusing drugs or getting into trouble with the law. The trip, a week ago, was part of a tour of several social service agencies in the city, to show the students where they could go for support and recreation during the summer.

The school board voted Tuesday to investigate how the decision to visit Planned Parenthood was made and determine whether anyone should be disciplined.


So now the anti-freedom folks want 'equal time'.

Funny, one of the anti-choicers said,

"Everybody knows Planned Parenthood performs abortions. There were protesters outside with signs saying 'Babies killed here.' There's no mistaking that (the students) have already been exposed to the issue."


Well, seems like you've had your say then, doesn't it? Hopefully, the kids were bright enough to figure out you're off your nut.
