Wisconsin DA Threatens To Arrest Teachers For Obeying the Law

Unbelievable. No, wait, let me re-phrase: sadly believable.

A Wisconsin prosecutor is warning sex education teachers they could face charges if they follow a new state law that allows them to instruct students about proper contraceptive use.

A letter sent to five school districts by Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth said the instruction could amount to contributing to the delinquency of a minor if teachers know students are sexually active. He said the districts should drop sex education until the law is repealed.

Just in case you think for a second that his concern is genuine and not rooted in the usual right-wing crazypants rhetoric:

Southworth's letter said law would convert sex education classes "into a radical program that sexualizes our children as early as kindergarten. This, in turn, will lead to more child sexual assaults."

Right, because if a child has received sex ed, then clearly they're just asking to be assaulted. Southworth isn't writing Vatican press releases on the side, is he?
