A womans choice

Someone call the N.O.W. gang and tell them to head to Philly. A womans right to choose
is being infringed upon. Now I'm not talking about losing the so called "right" to
terminate unborn children. I speak of the right to choose which beverage to have
with lunch. You see, soda has been banned from Philly's public schools. I suppose
that decision is much too important for teenage girls to make. Surely if a teen
can have an abortion, she can have a Coke in school. Come on! Where are people's
priorities? Schools need to focus on educating not what the kids are eating.
That's the parents job. Sorry parents, but school is not a daycare center. You
do have to participate.
