Transcript of Why the Giver should not be banned

The Giver was banned and challenged for many reasons. People believed it encouraged suicide, was too dark for children, brainwashing, infanticide, euthanasia, and the degradation of motherhood and adolescence.
The giver was banned and challenged in many cities in the United States. Many are from Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, California.
Why the giver shouldn't be banned
I believe that the giver shouldn't be banned because it is a very inspiring book. It tells a story about our future society and how we can never take away our humanity and our personal choices.

What The Giver is about
The Giver is a story of an utopian future society where poverty, crime, sickness, and unemployment are a thing of the past. The story follows a young 12 year old boy named Jonas. He is chosen to be the next Receiver of Memories. The society he lives in is based on Sameness which makes everyone the same in feelings and in imagination. Jonas being the Receiver of Memories, it is his task to store all the memories of life before Sameness. He soon realizes life is not as perfect as he thinks.
