The Arrogance of the 9th Circuit

We agree [with the previous ruling], and hold that there is no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children, either independent of their right to direct the upbringing and education of their children or encompassed by it. We also hold that parents have no due process or privacy right to override the determinations of public schools as to the information to which their children will be exposed while enrolled as students. Finally, we hold that the defendants' actions were rationally related to a legitimate state purpose. [emphasis Reinhardt's].
Thus is the words of Judge Stephen Reinhardt, of the 9th Circus Curcuit Court of Appeals regarding the ruling concerning questions added to a student questionare (h/t SondraK) given to 1st, 3rd and 5th grade students in the Palmdale, California school district in 2001. The questionaire asked the students the frequency of such sexual acts as:
-Touching my private parts too much
-Thinking about having sex
-Thinking about touching other people's private parts
-Thinking about sex when I don't want to
-Washing myself because I feel dirty on the inside
-Not trusting people because they might want sex
-Getting scared or upset when I think about sex
-Having sex feelings in my body
-Can't stop thinking about sex
-Getting upset when people talk about sex
Typical of the loony state of California (I'm glad I left). But I'll never accept the callous disregard for the rights of individuals to raise their own families. Here's a question, liberals are always voicing their fears that President Bush will curb their rights, but what about when it happens from the most liberal court in the land? This is a serious violation of personal rights.

Judge Reinhardt's wife is head of the state ACLU, will she fight for parent's liberties? I doubt it.
