Slippery slope argument? I wasn't making an argument at all! I was just genuinely asking about the article. I lack the data and knowledge to form an argument on this subject, let alone the emotion on the topic it would require to put one forth.
Apologies if my questioning sounded quarrelsome over the Internet, rather than interested confusion about the topic. I still don't quite grasp why this is good for the kidlets, but I get that this subject is strongly emotionally compelling for you, and I respect that and will just let my questions be.
