A book depicting a family with two lesbian mothers has been pulled from the shelves in an American school district. “In Our Mothers’ House” by Patricia Polacco, which aims to foster inclusion for those with same sex parents, has been removed from the regular collection of books available in elementary schools throughout the Davis County School District. It is believed students’ can still borrow the book from the library, but only if a permission slip is provided from parents. LGBT families and groups across Utah visited the school district office to challenge the decision.
