NWaters. The difference that you are missing is that participating in the school lunch program is an option. No one is forced to eat the school lunch. If you outlaw abortion, then no one can have one. You see the difference. If your school takes money from the govt to have a school lunch program then they have to follow health standards. If you don't like it, get your PTA together and tell the school to stop taking the govt money for the lunch program. Simple.
