Plastic human fetus dolls - soft, in pink and brown, and about 4 inches long - have been handed out at Oakwood Elementary School by an employee who was put on administrative leave Thursday over the situation.
"It is hard to imagine that we would have an employee who believes it would be appropriate to share plastic fetus dolls with students in one of our schools," the School Board Chairman said Thursday.
The card accompanying the doll described the first 12 weeks of fetal development, and contained a pro-life message.
""She comes home with a fetus and says, 'Mommy, look what I got!'
As a parent, I choose to teach my children about those things later in life," she added. "I did not sign a waiver for my daughter to be given a fetus."
The teacher said that attached to the dolls was a card with a "pro-life" message and information on fetal growth.
I am confused, as I don't see the controversy here.
What is wrong with seeing what a baby looks like before it is born? I seriously think this is extremism on the part of over-reactive parents.
In order to understand if these dolls were actually a pro-life stunt we MUST know the the "pro-life message" was...... if there is no proof that a pro-life message was accompanying the dolls then to me it is merely a biology lesson and this thread needs to be removed
