    That's....bizarre. Mensuration isn't sexual nature and some girls actually do start seeing their periods before the 6th grade.

    Personally, I think there should be more discussion on this with young girls and not less. I mean, this is something that most girls are going to experience, so why the "hush-up"?
    Always puzzled at what teachers are supposed to teach kids…as opposed to parents.

    One of my sisters taught primary school, and some of kids needed help with “dining manners” (to put things diplomatically), and not unknown for some kids not being toilet trained when first attending school.

    Have to say my own preference…which I never expect to see in U.K… is schools to stick to academic factual subjects, certainly no religious instruction, and impose just necessary codes of behaviour to allow their classmates to study in peace.

    Maybe they're worried that if boys hear about it they're going to want to do it themselves, since kids are so very easily influenced in these matters and all?

    Without trying to take a side here...

    That is right around when they gave us the talk in grade school back in the day.

    Well, what do you know. Overturning Roe is affecting more than just women seeking abortions. Never would have seen that coming.

    Idaho hospital to stop delivering babies as doctors flee over abortion ban

    An Idaho hospital has planned to stop delivering babies, with the medical center’s managers citing increasing criminalization of physicians and the inability to retain pediatricians as major reasons.

    Bonner General Health, the only hospital in Sandpoint, in the north-west of the state, announced on Friday it would no longer provide labor, delivery and a host of other obstetrical services.

    The more than 9,000 residents of Sandpoint will now forced to drive 46 miles for the nearest labor and delivery care, the Idaho Capital Sun reported.

    In a statement, the hospital said the decision to eliminate the obstetrics unit stemmed from the “political climate” in Idaho.
    Hospital officials are hoping to keep obstetrics services available until 19 May, but said it largely depends on staffing. New patients are no longer being seen at the hospital, effective immediately, while current patients are being offered alternative referrals.

    Since the supreme court in June eliminated the nationwide abortion rights that Roe v Wade established, states with total abortion bans have passed laws with the threat of prison time for doctors who perform abortions in violation of state law.

    The supreme court decision legalized an Idaho state ban on abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. The state is the first to pass a copy of Texas’s controversial bill. Idaho is also one of six that prosecutes doctors for providing abortion, CBS News reported.

    In August, the justice department filed a lawsuit against Idaho for its near-total ban on abortions, with doctors in the state writing in a court brief that physicians were often forced to choose between violating the state ban or federal healthcare law, the Associated Press reported.

    The implications of the ban is driving doctors out of the state, the Bonner hospital’s press release said.

    “The Idaho legislature continues to introduce and pass bills that criminalize physicians for medical care nationally recognized as the standard of care,” the hospital’s statement said.

    “Consequences for Idaho physicians providing the standard of care may include civil litigation and criminal prosecution, leading to jail time or fines.”

    DALLAS (CBSNewsTexas.com) A Thomas Jefferson High School student survived after getting shot in the arm while in the parking lot late Tuesday afternoon.

    Dallas police said the student was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    Students that were on campus during the time of the shooting went back inside after Dallas ISD police and DPD officers secured the scene.

    After law enforcement officials determined there were no additional threats, students were dismissed. No arrests have been made.

    Dallas ISD has canceled classes on Wednesday for Thomas Jefferson High School and Walnut Hill International Leadership Academy. Meals will still be distributed from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    Classes will resume Thursday with additional police presence.
