The Sacramento City Unified School District is investigating a middle school teacher’s decision to show sex ed students a pro-life group’s medical animation videos that depict what happens during abortion.
The district’s policies, reports the Bee, say family life and sex ed classes should “help students understand the biological, psychological, social, moral and ethical aspects of human sexuality and shall comply with the requirements of law and administrative regulation.” The report continues:
The school district states California law – the California Healthy Youth Act – requires “comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education be provided to students at least once in middle school and once in high school, starting in 7th grade.”
