NC public schools: Pro-life laws, like segregation, are examples of ‘oppressive government’

"...Any pre-born baby would gladly prefer a lifetime of sitting at the back of the bus over a trip to the abortionist..." Comment on the following article...

New curricular guidelines drafted by North Carolina’s Department of Public Instruction strongly encourage students to view pro-life legislation as an example of “oppressive government” akin to laws that permitted segregated public schools.

According to the department’s web site, all North Carolina public school students are required to take a course in civics and economics in order to graduate from high school. The draft of the revised civic and economics curriculum includes the following formative assessment prototype:

Using three Supreme Court Cases (e.g., Brown v Board, Roe v Wade, Korematsu v US) as support explain how the US Supreme Court has upheld rights against oppressive government? Brown v Board of Education of Topeka was the 1954 Supreme Court decision that struck down laws permitting segregated schools; Roe v Wade was the 1973 decision that struck down pro-life legislation across the nation.

North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue, Lieutenant Governor Walter Dalton, and Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson are all advocates of legalized abortion who were endorsed by NARAL (formerly the National Abortion Rights Action League).

My daughter teaches French, and Journalism in a NC Public School. A pro-Lifer like her Daddy she has taken a pro-life stance in school as a student in this school system and as a teacher in the same system. During her junior year she gave a Pro-life essay which the teacher didn't care for, and attempted to be-little her in front of her class. The student body made their convictions known including some who were in fact pro-abortion on the disgraceful way she was treated. Truly a daughter of the regiment, like all my children she speaks her mind.

Hello, for all students (at least the undergraduates) and others with an interest or enrolled in economics I have started a blog which will comprise study literature in a more entertaining form than standard textbooks, see
CrisisMaven’s Economics Study Guide. While still in its initial stages it will be added to constantly and covers general ecenomics subjects while at the same time dealing with current topics from the news that provide a welcome backdrop to an elucidating chapter in economics as well, e.g. Of Mortgage Brokers, ARMs, Attrition and Marathons .
