And here's the terribly awful page that was deemed inappropriate:

Factually accurate information, we can't have that. :naughty:

Wouldn't most children of parents that were extremely anti-choice have some clue as to what abortion is and that it's available? I mean, how do they explain that abortion is wrong if their children don't know what it is and what it entails? Wouldn't they be exposed to the anti-choice dogma, the photographs of aborted fetuses, etc. when they were out protesting or on anti-choice websites?

So a very factual, matter-of-fact page about contraception shouldn't be that big a deal after being exposed to all that.

:wtf: Sometimes, I am so embarrassed that I was born and raised in Arizona. I'm so glad that I live in Colorado, now.

What I dont understand is they already adopted this book and ordered it. If this page is so offensive they need to ripe it out. why now?

City of Gilbert. It's school board is controlled by a fairly strict Mormon group and has been for years. Get out the vote on Tuesday to remove power from this group.

no better way to get kids to read it of course.

Maybe that was their intent? Reverse psychology?

What do you mean "kids?" As an adult that's the best way to get me to read it, too! (Unless were talking about a sci if novel you think I'll hate, that's a bit different from saying "don't read that evolution textbook.")

I'm am sad to admit I am a product of Gilbert public schools.

Like keen said Gilbert has a huge Mormon population. It's like a little Utah. It really doesn't surprise me. My high school also gave release time for Mormons to run across the street to seminary during schools hours.

I have never understood why religious types view knowledge as dangerous. Just because I read a book about a serial killer doesn't mean I am going to become one and just because kids have access to info about abortion doesn't mean they are all going to run out and have one.

And yes, I agree that once kids know they aren't supposed to see that information- it makes it all the more enticing.

I lived in Gilbert for 2 years...glad I didn't have any kids in school. There's a LDS meeting house on every other corner and a big temple that was built on the eastern edge of town. Nevada isn't much better...LV is surprisingly conservative for all it's reputation as "sin city"

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
