(CBN News) Parents in Tacoma, Washington were furious to find out that a teacher distributed a flyer to 8th graders outlining their rights to having an abortion without parental consent.
According to The Post Millennial, students at Stewart Middle School received the handout during science class. It points out that they can get an abortion “at any age” and “do not need to get permission from a parent or guardian.”
Additional items listed on the handout include receiving birth control, condoms, HIV, and STD testing.
Eric Hogan, assistant director of secondary education at Tacoma Public Schools responded to the irate parents by reassuring them that the flyer was “not part of our curriculum and should not have been sent home with students.”
