ACLU Sues Utah School District Over Book on Lesbian Moms

Meanwhile Amazon only has 16 copies of the picture book left. They are about to have only 15, better hurry:

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed suit against a Utah school district for its decision to remove a picture book featuring lesbian mothers from the shelves of elementary school libraries.  
Students in the Davis School District can only read the book, In Our Mothers' House by Patricia Polacco, if they have a signed permission slip from their parents, reports the Salt Lake Tribune.
Davis spokesman David Williams told the Tribune he was confident in the district's decision to curtail the book's availability, but also noted that the book was added to the library in an effort to foster inclusion, since at least one student in a Davis school has lesbian mothers.
