NJ Union Censors Abstinence Educators
New Jersey Education Association has told three supporters of abstinence education they are no longer welcome to speak at the union's annual convention in Atlantic City next month.

The three individuals signed up in August to present workshops, said Bernadette Vissani, director of New Jersey Coalition for Abstinence Education. But on Oct. 4, Vissani received a letter from the union that said her services were not needed. Two New Jersey doctors, Johanna Mohn and James Thompson, were also told not to come.

While the presenters have conceded the union legally did nothing wrong, Vissani said her primary concern was that the abstinence perspective was being censored.

"The union is a private organization, and they are certainly within their rights to cancel us," she said. "But their reason for canceling us flies in the face of educational freedom and the free exchange of ideas." ...

Yet another reason for concerned parents to secede from the government schools if at all possible. When you allow the government to work hand in hand with unions, don't be surprised that our corrupt political process dominates.

One warning about abstinence education; it was "mandated" by a federal government that has no constitutionally granted role in education. So was "comprehensive" sex education.

So let's not get too worked up that a teachers's union refuses to hear about what it's legally (but uncontitutionally) required to teach. Let's instead be concerned that the federal government is using its power to usurp the lawful authority of the states and people.

Let's respond by refusing to take part in as many unconstitutional programs as possible.

So teen sex is now compared to traffic accidents? How absurd. By that arguement then drug users should be allowed to continue becaue they are already using drugs. "Comprehesive" sex education is absurd in itself. The point of an abstience program is to teach kids to wait until marriage and get the kids who are already having sex to STOP having sex by explaining the risks and by counceling them.
