Bachmann Answers Anti-Gay Bullying Petition

Written by 

 

Finally, Michele Bachmann answers the petition on anti-gay bullying.

Two weeks ago, the mother of a young gay, who committed suicide after being bullied within his school, met with Bachmann's officer and had gave the petition hoping to have an answer.

Michele Bachmann answers : "Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns about anti-gay bullying and harassment via the CREDO Action petition. As your Representative for the 6th district of Minnesota, your views are very important to me and I appreciate hearing from you.

Unquestionably, bullying is wrong. I agree that no student should feel belittled or threatened by peers at school. All human lives have undeniable value, and I urge parents, teachers, and students alike to champion this fact in our community and to address instances of bullying promptly and firmly when they occur.

As one of the members of the U.S. House of Representatives representing the Anoka-Hennepin School District, I am very aware and concerned about the cases of bullying and suicides that have occurred there. In response, my office has been in communication with both school officials and with individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide.

We all desire to see bullying brought to an end and the best interests of students served in our schools. Again, thank you for your commitment on this matter. I assure you I will continue to be a listening ear for any constituent wishing to express his or her view on this or any other issue.

Sincerely,

Michele Bachmann
Member of Congress"

What do you think about it? I am not really sure the mother received support by the office of Bachmann after her son committed suicide.
