School officials are charged with protecting not only the bodies of our children, but their minds as well. When our children step into school, it is expected that school officials will do their utmost to prevent controversy and keep kids from seeing and hearing things one shouldn’t be exposed to in school. But one high school principal failed to do his job, allowing a family to expose students to a graphic anti-abortion DVD comparing abortion to the Holocaust. And parents as well as students are outraged.
Produced by Christian ministry Living Waters, the film, titled ’180′ shows images of Hitler, concentration camps, and the Holocaust. If the film had been just a documentary about the historical horrors of Nazi Germany, the film may not have been such a big deal. But the film went on to compare abortion, the women who have them, and the medical professionals who perform them to the Nazis while comparing abortion to the Holocaust. The film was an attempt to expose and indoctrinate students to the right-wing evangelical point of view. The principal actually told the family that they could pass around the film but wanted permission from parents to do so. But the family didn’t wait. Instead they handed out the DVDs and two classes were actually subjected to watching the film before school officials realized their mistake and took away the DVDs.
