So today my Biology teacher ordered us all to pub back our humongous biology back to school so try could rip out a couple pages. Since the school board is all Christian and conservative, they forced the district to have all biology ripped of the page talking about abortions. All the pages do is give us information such as side affects of certain abortion pills. They say it's against Christian religion. I want to go all activist on them and go Fahrenheit 451 on them, but I'm not sure how. I feel like sayin it's against my religion cuz I'm pastafarian but Idk, help plz! It first hour now and biology is 4 hour!

I'm a Christian Conservative against abortion, but I think we needed to be aware of the world around us. We can't just go in a little bubble and shelter ourselves from the world. You might say something to that affect. It might be persuasive to them that if students learn how it works then they will be better equipped to fight it.

I don't believe a word of your story. No school would have you rip out pages i a textbook they didn't agree with. They would just have different books in the first place.
You need to also Study more English as well as Biology since your post was almost incomprehensible. At first I thought it was one of the Spambot posts like over on the lame Health Forum that are garbled on purpose to get past the firewalls. LOL.

God Bless, kid.

Its true. I got my book back with the page ripped out about abortion and my friend found that a few pages of the evolution part had been ripped out as well.

As far as the grammar, I apologize but I was speed typing on a bus going to school and I didnt read it over, Annie already got on my case about that. I dont know what the purpose of your post was exactly except point out I had grammar mistakes and imply I'm stupid.

God Bless!

I don't know where you live, but if you're in the US you may want to contact the freedom from religion foundation.

There is nothing practical you can do directly as a student, and nothing you can do in four hours. I think what you should do is alert someone outside of the school system who can go bare knuckles with them. The Freedom from Religion organization is a good idea, but someone local would better. Maybe you know of someone in the town who's notorious for fighting these issues, or you might ask the local Democratic Party organization. You might find a facebook page for a local group that's interested in such issues. The reason that someone local is better is that they can argue that they are personally affected. But don't fight directly, you'll just get stomped with no positive effect.

How does learning about abortion go against Christianity? It's not like the textbook is endorsing abortion, they're just educating people about it.

I'm not sure how you could contact the media in the US. But you could try and conteact the CBC by "going public" http://www.cbc.ca... Just submit the information of the incident below the column saying "submit your story"
"Praise Allah."

Do your local education authorities have some sort of system that handles complaints? If the school is shying away from teaching stuff that the government clearly stated as necessary in the curriculum, they may be happy to handle your complaint...

The government is in on it. They passed a law about it and the school took it a step further. I doubt the government would help.

"The board did so after urging by a religious group called Alliance Defending Freedom. The group complained that pages in the book that discussed contraception and abortion violated the law. The board said it would alter the textbook by either ripping the offending pages out or pasting new images in."

"Soon after, the board changed their minds. Kishimoto told MSNBC that she worked with the board to come to a compromise, and that is how the sticker idea was born."
