In response to the guest commentary by Amy Brailey, a history teacher, I can only say that I am concerned regarding her views as she teaches our children.

Not only does she have incorrect information on the economic and historical impact Obamacare will provide to our country, but she is using the same Fox News rhetoric regarding forced abortion and contraceptive services as well as the cost to the public and state.

I doubt she is concerned that these same facilities and insurance companies provide Viagra at increasing rates. One should contemplate Viagra and birth control, right?

She then goes on to the First Amendment rights detailing everyone’s freedoms and continues on with “if we are forced to receive government medical services we do not desire….” What part of forced  ultrasound is Brailey OK with?

I can’t imagine what is being taught regarding the U.S. and climate change.
