Grant MI Health center mural (cont.)

So, the controversy in Grant, MI regarding the mural that was created by Grant High School student, 16-year-old Evelyn Gonzales, which was discussed last month...

[] not resolved and getting ugly, with calls to paint over the mural, and some even calling for the health center to get shut down, as the health center is not run by the school. The reason is unclear, but it has something to do with Prop. 3 passing, which enshrines the right to an abortion in Michigan's constitution. My guess is that some parents are afraid that if a girl thinks she may become pregnant and wants an abortion, she'll go the heath center to get a morning-after pill. You know, the whole parental rights issue.

I'm going to start by say upfront that as a former art teacher I find the mural to be of poor quality, I would have never endorsed it for display.

that said, the mural was chosen and approved. The copyrighted symbols will be removed. If those that run the school and clinic are happy then it should stay. My fear is that it will only be a matter of time before some bonehead neanderthal takes it upon themself to destroy it and possibly harm anyone trying to stop them.

This issue is not going to just go away.
