Utah: High school biology test promotes abortion

From Salt Lake City Tribune:

The test question was presented to students in a multiple-choice format, asking which of four scenarios best describes how the pregnant woman and her family should decide to either abort the pregnancy or carry it to term.

The potential answers include: waiting and redoing the genetic testing closer to the baby’s due date; trusting the scientific knowledge of the doctor and going forward with an abortion; prioritizing the wishes of the mother; and considering aspects like religious beliefs, financial burden and the effect on other family members before making “the best decision for everyone.”

Oak Norton, an education activist affiliated with Utahns Against Common Core, said the question potentially violates Utah law by testing students’ moral, political and religious views.

He also said it’s telling that students didn’t have the option of selecting an answer that respects the life of the unborn child. More.

Reality check: Respects? Life? Unborn child? Welcome to Obama and Trudeau country. In Canada we will all soon be “the fetus.” Don’t look now but the test question may revolve around a mentally ill senior somewhere down the road.

The US Supreme Court can easily make that happen in the US, as ours did in Canada.

      But abortion is essential to make room for all the refugees and their children.

  • It’s time to home-school kids.

      Unfortunately, most Canadians are both financially and academically incapable of doing that. Every year, 85% of U ofT freshmen are recommended for “remedial English instruction”. This is not due to “second language English-speakers” so much as it has to do with the Public Ed system simply not turning out literate graduates. Today’s HS grads would overwhelming fail a 7th Grade English examination from 1965. Unfortunately, I had the opportunity to see this proven when I consulted with a larger HR firm handling major contracts for media, broadcasters, communications consulting firms, etc – the very industries that traditionally required a higher than average literacy level. Just another among the many reasons why the MSM sucks so very much.

      • Educational overhaul is going to happen anyway. If a kid can learn more from an educational Youtube video than in a classroom, it’s time to re-evaluate how we educate kids and for what they are educated.

        Kids are taught fewer literacy skills and their math curricula in school is all over the place. This is to say nothing about agenda-driven teachers.

    Sounds reasonable to me.
