Troubling

Did you know that in most California schools districts a teacher can take your 13 year old daughter to Planned Parenthood, get her an abortion, and you, the parent are never told? Of course when the emotional and medical problems happen, you get to pay--and the abortion is never discussed. You have no idea why your 13 year old is sick and having emotional problems.

Thankfully, this has been stopped in the Modesto schools. There, the parents found out about this kidnapping (and that is what it is) of girls for the profit of Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities.

Action Item: You need to find out what the policy is of your school district. If they allow a teacher to take your daughter off campus, without your knowledge, you need to take action. As we already know, in some cases, it is a male teacher, who got the children pregnant in the first place--and that is called rape.

It is your daughter, time to fight for her.



Secret Abortions Stopped in Modesto Schools

Modesto schools retain medical absence rules

By Michelle Hatfield, Modesato Bee, 8/25/09

Reversing their earlier position, Modesto City Schools trustees Monday night decided not to adopt a policy change that would have granted junior high and high school students excused absences to leave school for confidential medical services without parent knowledge.

Trustees voted 4-3 in June to approve the first reading of the new policy. Current policy allows the release of students for medical services if parents sign a consent form. Leaving campus without that form results in an unexcused absence, which can lead to a school notifying parents of the absence.

Monday night, staff recommended keeping that policy, which has been "an effective and unchallenged practice for over 20 years," said Pat Portwood, associate superintendent, in a report to the board.

The move ends a two-month battle between supporters and opponents of a policy change.

About 60 people attended Monday's meeting, with about a dozen speaking to the board.

Most of the opposition centers on the idea that a student could get an abortion without parental knowledge. Medical services can include pregnancy testing, contraception, abortion, sexually transmitted disease testing and treatment, and counseling and treatment for rape, drug abuse and mental health.

Trustee Gary Lopez said the state has decided that minors can get confidential medical services without parental consent. The issue for Modesto's trustees boiled down to whether students should get excused or nonexcused absences if they leave school for those appointments, he said.

When it's unexcused, parents may be notified of the absence and students can't make up missed schoolwork.

Several people spoke during public comment urging trustees to oppose or support the policy change.

Shirley and Louis Woodward spoke of the different experiences their two sons faced growing up, one straight and one gay. Shirley Woodward said her gay son wouldn't go to the bathroom in high school because he was afraid he'd be attacked for being homosexual.

"Everyone here tonight cares for their children or else they wouldn't be here tonight. We just have a difference of opinion," Louis Woodward said. "We need to fight for the minority, not just protect parents. We need to support these children and their rights to privacy."

Brenna McNamara does not want her children released from school without her knowledge.

"I trust Modesto City Schools to take care of my children. This is not in their best interests to go over the parents' heads," said the mother of three.

Activist Fred Herman said he feared the board's reversal was based on concern over some trustees' re-election bids in November. In the conflict between student safety and political gain, "politics seems to have won," he said.
