LGBT Classes in School: Should Parents Be Allowed to Withdraw Children From LGBT Classes?

There’s been a little bit of backlash recently against MP Andrea Leadsom after she said that parents should be allowed to withdraw their children from LGBT classes in school. Of course this is an issue that by far transcends that of the views of a single MP, and really is something that needs to be talked about.

In an article posted by the BBC, a hospital has been criticised for using the term artificial feeding in regards to how people might want to feed their baby after the birth. Not only did they refer to feeding a baby formula milk as artificial feeding, but they also used the term ‘artificial milk’ several times throughout the letter.
