    DA's Sex Ed Warning Befuddles Wis. Teachers, Kids - wcco.com

    What the, Southworth warned that teaching a student how to properly use contraceptives would be contributing to the delinquency of a minor, a misdemeanor punishable by up to nine months behind bars and a $10,000 fine. He said it would be promoting sex among minors, who are not legally allowed to have sex in Wisconsin.

    When will the sane regain controll of this world?

    An AASECT certified sex educator who lives in Madison, Wisconsin
    commented about this topic. She gave me permission to share the info
    and her thoughts

    She said:

    1. The law was well researched and well vetted with parents and school
    district leaders and teachers across the state. So there is no legal
    challenge to it. In fact, even this attorney would have to really be
    lawsuit shopping in order to find a case to bring against it. It would
    be seen as a waste of taxpayer dollars, which we are not in favor of in
    WI at the moment.
    2. Yesterday when the statement was released was election day here.
    The timing is not a coincidence. I would not be at all surprised if
    this gentleman's name would not be on the ballot for a state senate or
    rep seat soon. I do believe he was trying to get attention by being
    sensationalist and he succeeded.
    3. Juneau County contains Elroy, which is the hometown and home base
    for Tommy Thompson, our 12 year Republican governor, who put the state
    into a huge debt (before everyone else), and started the welfare reform
    movement in the U.S. He also was the head of the department of health
    and human services under George W. Bush. So, yeah, it is a kind of
    republican pride county. (It's also home to Camp Douglas, a military
    base.)
    4. It's too bad the entire story from our state paper isn't available
    online. In it, lawmakers and an law professor from the UW-Madison
    stated that the judicial system would not be interested in the case.
    There's no constitutional conflict, nor is their any personal injury to
    speak of. Parents have the option of declining that their child take
    the course if the school district decides to offer one. Since parents
    have that option any responsibility would fall to the parent not the
    school district or individual teacher. This rural district attorney
    also did not like the fact that school students would be taught about
    one another's bodies, not just the contraceptive or sexuality discussions.
    5. <>We do have a very active lobby against contraception in this
    state. There are four people who don't have any other job but to lobby
    and protest against contraception. Not just abortion mind you, but
    contraception! They do have political money to put behind candidates.
    Hmmm...I wonder if there might be a connection made in the future???

    They should make lobbing a criminal offense.
