Conservative School Board Members in Arizona Don’t Want Students to See This Page in Their Honors Biology Textbooks

The board members of the Gilbert Public Schools in Arizona voted 3-2 last week to remove a page from an honors biology textbook because it contains information about birth control and abortion.

Sure, it says “Complete abstinence (avoiding intercourse) is the only totally effective method of birth control,” but since it suggests that there may be other options, it’s heresy to conservatives, including Natalie Decker of the Alliance Defending Freedom who persuaded the board members to excise the section.

I guess the only solution now, besides voting those board members out of office at the next possible opportunity, is to make sure that page is as widely available as possible…:

You know… there are five high schools in the district. How great would it be if their student newspapers reprinted the entire page in an upcoming issue? Copyright infringement be damned — I’m sure the textbook company would appreciate it.
