Tuesday, April 24, 2007 | Vladimir Kogan‘s article “San Diego Unified Defies State on Abortion” fails to adequately report the legal disagreement over the laws which the school district is supposedly violating. For instance, it should have been noted that Attorney General Bill Lockyer’s opinion, on which the story is based, was a partisan attempt to undo an earlier opinion by Attorney General Dan Lungren which reached the opposite conclusion — that schools may require parental consent before referring students to abortion services. Of course, it should have also been emphasized that AG opinions are just that — opinions. They are not binding law.
