Ohio Rep. Schmidt Tells First-Graders that Abortion Is "Killing a Child Before It Is Born"

Politics Daily: Ohio Rep. Jean Schmidt Talks Abortion With 1st Graders; Principal Apologizes, by Christopher Weber:

The principal of a Cincinnati Catholic school has apologized to parents after Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) discussed abortion during a speech to kids as young as 6.

Schmidt, a conservative, brought up the controversial matter while talking about the connection between moral issues and legislation during a question-and-answer period, the Daily News reported.

"Unexpectedly, towards the end of her address, Congresswoman Schmidt brought up the topic of abortion," Prinicipal Dan Teller wrote in a letter to parents, obtained by Cincinnati's WLWT-TV. "Your children may come home with questions, especially if this is a topic that has not been broached in your home." . . .
