Governor poised to sign law making kids watch animated fetal videos

In Tennessee, whether parents like it or not, Republican Gov. Bill Lee is poised to sign a law that will make public school children watch an animated video on fetal development backed by an anti-abortion group, or some equivalent of it, after lawmakers in the state vaulted the legislation to passage.

Among other features in the video, it depicts sperm fertilizing an ovum and it is here that it declares: “This is the moment that life begins. A new human being has come into existence.” The animated video states that a fetus can recognize lullabies in the womb and depicts a purported fetus at 27 weeks gazing through a translucent womb while pressing its fingers against it. The shadow of the mother’s fingers press back.

The 3-minute video is riddled with disinformation, according to the [American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists]

According to The Tennessean, Republican lawmakers in the state’s senate rejected Democratic-led amendments that would have made watching the clip optional for students instead of mandatory. Another amendment that would have stopped schools from showing it without explicit consent from a parent or guardian was also voted down by Republicans.

I'm all for supporting parents rights with their children. Where do the liberals stand when parents don't want their children being taught stuff from the CRT, or DEI, or from the LGBTQIA+ agendas?

The "liberals" stand with teaching factual information about those subjects.

California allows parents to opt out of any and all parts of sex ed.

Other things can and should be taught from a historical/civics perspective.

I believe most University aged kids are past the age of majority.

You are correct. However, the bill in Tennessee is applicable mostly if not completely to children and schools that are middle schools, junior high schools, and high schools.

Governor poised to sign law making kids watch animated fetal videos

In Tennessee, whether parents like it or not, Republican Gov. Bill Lee is poised to sign a law that will make public school children watch an animated video on fetal development backed by an anti-abortion group, or some equivalent of it, after lawmakers in the state vaulted the legislation to passage.

Among other features in the video, it depicts sperm fertilizing an ovum and it is here that it declares: “This is the moment that life begins. A new human being has come into existence.” The animated video states that a fetus can recognize lullabies in the womb and depicts a purported fetus at 27 weeks gazing through a translucent womb while pressing its fingers against it. The shadow of the mother’s fingers press back.

What kind of disinformation is in the video?

Apparently “indoctrination“ is okay if it’s the correct indoctrination.

I would need to view these videos in order to make a comment that is based on facts. Is on YouTube?
Be blessed.

That video is a factual video.
No, it's not. An ultrasound can detect the beating of cardiac tissue around weeks five to six. Typically, the heart will form within the next few weeks. One of the milestones of fetal development is when the heart begins to beat. The video says 3 weeks. Also a fetus cant live outside the womb at 20 weeks. Without emergency life saving medical help This would not be good. They have less that a 50 percent chance of surviving . They're more likely to have developmental problem. Who knows how many other lies are on this video. This video may make kids and teens to want to became pregnant on purpose. Because this video makes it seem like pregnancy is so pleasant. This might actually increase teen sex. They need a more truthful account. They need to be taught about Birth control, and how hard it is being pregnant and raise them. This video leaves a lot of truth out.

DEI and CRT are taught at the university level.

That stuff is also being taught at the high school levels as well.
They're teaching pure CRT at the graduate level.

At undergraduate and public school levels all the way down to elementary, they are teaching resulting concepts of CRT and DEI.

Should parents have the right to opt out their children, under the age of 18, from those classes?

Should white parents be able to opt out of a class that's going to teach their little Chad that he's inherently a race and gender Oppressor and deserves to be socially restricted? Should black parents be able to opt out of a class that teaches them that their little Rashida will be vulnerable to oppression by Chad if they don't remain in constant vigilance against his inherent oppressive nature?

Yes, they should.

DEI and CRT are not about equality of races and sexes, nor is it about equal opportunity.
