Should Students Be Required To Learn CPR To Graduate High School?

When the question is asked, "Should the government...?",
Tonya Schuitmaker
the answer should always be no.  

Michigan Senator Tonya Schuitmaker, who is rumored to be considering a run for Michigan Attorney General, wants hundreds of thousands of people to be able to jump in and help during a medical emergency.

"It's important to make sure that they have live-saving skills which will last a lifetime," she said. That's why she introduced a bill that would require students to learn CPR before they can graduate.

While the bill maybe a noble act by Senator Shuitmaker, you can't force someone to save another's life. This is potentially what this bill may lead to.  A CPR course should be offered as an elective but not mandatory.
