Teaching Sex-Ed in Wisconsin can get you prosecuted

Careful, you could be contributing to the delinquency of a minor

Careful, you could be contributing to the delinquency of a minor

A Juneau County District Attorney is warning Sex-Ed teachers that they could be prosecuted for contributing to the delinquency of a minor if they adhere to new state guidelines that require instructions on the use of condoms and other contraceptives.

The overzealous lawman is Scott Southworth, and he won't rest until every kid in Wisconsin is pregnant or has herpes.

"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," Southworth wrote in the March 24 letter. "It is akin to teaching children about alcohol use, then instructing them on how to make mixed alcoholic drinks."

Rep. Kelda Helen Roys (D-Madison) says Southworth--a Republican who describes the law as a "sick and shameful piece of legislation"--is just trying to scare people. 
"I think this is about trying to intimidate school administrators and teachers into staying silent."
