California Teacher Is Being Investigated After Showing Students A Pro-Life Medical Video That Explains Abortions
[California] Sacramento City Unified School District is currently investigating a 7th-grade teacher for reportedly showing videos to her class that details the entire abortion procedure. She also included the music video of rapper Nick Cannon who wrote a song titled ‘Can I Live’. Where Mr. Cannon thanked his mother for refusing to abort him.
According to The DailyWire, the pro-life video in question features a former abortionist turned pro-lifer named Dr. Anthony Levatino. Levatino, in collaboration with pro-life group Live Action, medically describes what an abortionist does during first and second trimester abortions in at least two different videos (both posted below), though it’s unclear which one was allegedly shown to the middle schoolers.
The former abortionist performed hundreds of abortions before his adopted daughter was tragically killed outside their home by car. “I looked at the remains of a pre-born child whose life I had ended, and all I could see was someone’s son or daughter,” Levatino explained of his conversion.
On Tuesday, school district spokesman Alex Barrios told The Sacramento Bee that the videos allegedly shown are “completely inappropriate for the classroom” and do not “meet the district’s approved family life and sexuality curriculum.” The district “will address this matter with the seriousness it demands,” added Barrios.
The videos show the steps taken by doctors to end both 1st and 2nd-trimester babies. Admitably, they were hard to watch, just the idea turns my stomach, but in reality, knowing exactly what happens to the baby could save a life. Even open doors for alternative options like adoption.

Live Action Founder and President Lila Rose told LifeSiteNews that she also took issue with the investigation given that California law allows underage girls to get abortions without parental consent.
“Tens of thousands of teen girls have abortions every year in America, and they deserve the information about fetal development, what happens during an abortion procedure, and its risks,” continued Rose.
“How can students understand the biological, moral, and ethical aspects of abortion without knowing what the abortion procedure entails for both the developing child and mother?”
