We call on all of our elected officials in Wisconsin, especially Dave Obey, to denounce this horrible federal appeals court ruling out of the 9th Circuit.
Below are excerpts from the AP story:
"Circuit Judge Stephen Reinhardt said "no such specific right can be found in the deep roots of the nation's history and tradition or implied in the concept of ordered liberty."
"The appeals court noted that other courts have upheld mandatory health classes, a school system's condom distribution program and compulsory sex ed."
"The district dropped the survey in 2002 amid complaints from parents."
"It was given to children in the first, third and fifth grades as part of a program to gauge early trauma and help youngsters overcome barriers to learning."
"Among other things, the students were asked how often they thought about sex."
Update: Red State has the questions. We put them in the comments section for your review. Be careful, they're really rather disturbing to be asked of first graders.
