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."
Schmidt was addressing students ranging from first to eighth grade. The name of the school was not reported.
and some were upset that Obama wanted to say an education is important....

That certainly showed poor judgement on the part of Congresswoman Schmidt. I'd be livid if this happened in my daughters' schools, too. This is not a topic that's appropriate to discuss with such young children.
