I was always told that until a child reaches legal age, that parents are responsible for their children. Their children cannot legally sign official documents or consent forms for medical or school related items. Not that many years ago parents were also held legally liable for any crimes their kids committed.
Progressive socialists understand that in order to win control of the nation that they need to break and destroy the traditional family unit. One of the ways of accomplishing this is to steadily undermine parental authority. They strive to convince your kids that you are their enemy and that the government and schools are their friends and the ones to turn to for everything instead of their parents.
Planned Parenthood has already been actively involved in the public schools circumventing parental authority and knowledge. They are teaching your children not to tell you if they are sexually active and where to go for birth control and condoms. In some cases, Planned Parenthood has even provided minors with information to help them bypass state laws and have an abortion without the knowledge or consent of their parents or a judge.
Now, the state of Michigan has taken a bold step in undermining parental authority.
When Christy Duffy took her daughter to a local Michigan hospital for an appointment, she was shocked when she saw the following notice posted at the reception area:
“ATTENTION PARENTS OF ADOLESCENT CHILDREN AGE 12y-17y.
“New Michigan Medical Records access laws have been put in place. This will require a nurse to have a short 5 minute private conversation with your child. We will explain the purpose and process at the time of the visit and answer any question you many have.”
Duffy then inquired if she could opt out of the new policy and was told that it was mandatory. When she inquired further, the office manager explained to her what took place in the 5 minute conversation. Duffy posted the explanation on her blog:
“She said there was a new policy that would allow a child to access his/her medical records online and the child would be allowed to block a parent from viewing the website. The nurse would also inform my children that the doctor’s office is a safe place for them to receive information about STDs, HIV and birth control. That is what the nurse would be chatting about with my children without any pesky parental oversight.”
After being told what the 5 minute conversation would entail, Duffy insisted that no one at the hospital would be talking to her daughter without her present. Duffy then added the following to her blog:
“Make sure this is crystal clear: what they want to do is talk to your child about sex and drugs (maybe rock and roll – who knows?) without your input. Is it really such a stretch to imagine that a doctor who does not value abstinence before marriage would encourage your daughters – as young as 12! – to receive birth control? Is it really such a stretch to imagine a nurse telling a young boy – because a 12 year old boy is a BOY – that she will give him condoms so he can be “safe”? Is this what you want told to your children without the ability to filter the info through your world view?”
“I am the Mom. I will pick who can talk to my kids about sex and drugs. And rock-n-roll for that matter.”
I applaud Duffy for standing up for her parental rights and encourage all other parents to do likewise. If parents don’t stand up and fight for their rights, they’ll lose all control and authority of their kids to the state and they’ll grow up to be good little comrades that march to the socialist drumming and further destroy America.
