Wisconsin District Attorney Threatens to Prosecute Any Schools Teaching Sex Ed

Juneau County District Attorney Scott Southworth has reportedly threatened to prosecute schools if they comply with new state sex-education educational directives. He has declared that such courses encourage minors to have sex.

Republican Southworth insists that the law would expose minors to the use of condoms and other contraceptives “promotes the sexualization — and sexual assault — of our children.” Southworth sent a letter to five school districts threatening such prosecutions:

“If a teacher instructs any student aged 16 or younger how to utilize contraceptives under circumstances where the teacher knows the child is engaging in sexual activity with another child — or even where the ‘natural and probable consequences’ of the teacher’s instruction is to cause that child to engage in sexual intercourse with a child — that teacher can be charged under this statute” of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. …

“Forcing our schools to instruct children on how to utilize contraceptives encourages our children to engage in sexual behavior, whether as a victim or an offender,” he wrote. “It is akin to teaching children about alcohol use, then instructing them on how to make mixed alcoholic drinks.”

The law allows parents to remove their children from such classes, which are left to the discretion of the school districts.

Southworth’s threat of prosecution is a shocking abuse of office and worthy of review by the Wisconsin bar.

We have seen similar abuses recently in Arizona, here.

  1. I still believe that home birth videos are the way to go. It’s cheap and it saves us be taxpayers money. Didn’t the healthcare plan budget about $250 million dollars to go towards sex education?

    The male students need to see the videos too. May their own mothers can donate their personal videos. These boys need to see how they came into the world… Nothing like seeing your own mother naked to make sex unappealing for quite some time

    And I also think that very graphic photos of genitials exposed to STD’s would help as well. Those definitely creeped me out in highschool. I looked them up myself in a medical book at our very own school library. Used them in my health class STD speech on syphilis…not pretty at all

  2. I think it is a scientific rule that teenagers will have sex. Teenage boys think of sex about 95% of the time. Is there something in Southworth’s background that would lead him to these insane decisions?

  3. Strange thing is, when I went to high school students only had sex ed. if they chose to take gym ( a rather small population of girls in those days ). Somehow we all not only knew what sex was but most were also participating in the activity. Hmmm…. and all without the encouraging teachings of contraception.
