A ‘Baby Olivia’ bill mandating that schools teach the truth about fetal development is advanced by three states

A pro-life initiative that would mandate that public school pupils watch a video on fetal development as part of their health instruction has recently advanced in a few states. The “Baby Olivia” bill mandates that middle and high school students watch a Live Action-produced, medically accurate film about the development of the fetus from the time of fertilization to delivery. Lila Rose created Live Action, a non-profit pro-life group. Thus far, the bill has been pushed by members of the Iowa Senate, West Virginia Senate, and Kentucky House.

 

Regarding the film, Iowa Representative Anne Osmundson (R-Volga) stated, “The bill ensures the teaching to our children of basic facts about human development in a very approachable way.” “This data is based on science. Our kids are learning fundamental biology through this. And it provides an answer to one of the most important questions in life: “Where am I from?” Although the regulations do not mandate that schools show the Live Action DVD, they do mandate that the instructional materials taught to students be “comparable.” The film shows the amazing transformation of a single-celled human into a baby with brainwaves, fingers, and toes while still in the womb.

 

“We believe that one crucial step towards ending abortion in our country is saturating the online market with powerful and transformative pro-life content that counters pro-abortion lies and is proven to change minds and save lives,” Rose stated at the time. “Our goal is to reach as many young people as possible with the truth about the abortion industry and the wonders of life beginning at conception. More lives will be lost to abortion the longer we remain silenced on TikTok. “Censorship has to stop,” she continued. The video has drawn criticism for being “grossly inaccurate.”
