A new Wisconsin sex-education law requires that proper use of condoms and other contraceptives be taught in schools as part of their sex education program. Schools have the option to opt-out and parents can pull their kids out of those classes. The crazed Republican DA of Juneau County has warned that teachers who comply with the new state law may be brought up for charges on encouraging teens to have sex.

Quote:
A Wisconsin district attorney has warned schools in his county that if proceed with new state sex-education courses, teachers could face criminal charges for encouraging minors to have sex, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth said a new state law that requires students learn to use condoms and other contraceptives "promotes the sexualization — and sexual assault — of our children." In his March 24 letter to five school districts, Southworth, a Republican, said teachers could be charged with contributing to the delinquency of minors. He urged school officials to suspend the program, which takes effect in the fall, and transfer the anatomy curriculum to a science course.
Unreal.....

Default additional thought

Another fine Christian gentleman, I'm sure. I have heard the term Christian Taliban bandied about here. At first I thought it to be offensive, but the more I hear stories like this, the more I believe the term to be appropriate.

There are plenty of respectable, fine, upstanding Christians in the US. It's people like this gentleman who give them a bad name.

Disgusting abuse of power. He should face disbarment.

Not a random DA's call to make.

Oh, it'll work just fine for its intended purpose - that of promoting said DA in the eyes of his bonehead constituents. If a few teaching careers will be broken in the process, well, that's just a price he's willing to pay.
