Abortion Clinic Field Trip
by: Karen England, October 20, 2006
As part of an “activism class,” students at Solebury School, a private school near Philadelphia, were taken to an abortion clinic, donned vests worn by abortion staff, and helped to escort women into the building.
During the field trip students were not permitted to speak to pro-life demonstrators standing outside the building.
“This is very, very disturbing,” said Eileen Stone, a prayer service participant. “These students are only seeing one side. Shouldn’t they see another perspective? After all, education is about seeing the whole picture.”
The teacher organizing the trip, Jason Gordon, said the students weren’t permitted to speak with the pro- life demonstrators because he did not want them to become involved in activism, denying that what they were doing was already a form of activism. He admitted that the children were not given both sides of the argument.
Holy. Cow. I just don't think I can even add anything to this freakish article to make it any more pathetic than it already is. This was a private school teacher??? And people wonder why we homeschool our kids! Go. Figure.
Hat tip to Sherry in Houston.
