Oregon Initiative

Madeleine Brand of NPR News reports on an initiative on Oregon ballot, known as Measure Nine. If approved, it would ban from public schools anything that "promotes, encourages, or sanctions" homosexuality. Opponents warn that Measure Nine is so broadly worded, it could ban everything from certain books from school libraries, and AIDS education programs.
