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.

An article from an unusual source

Catholic Church Conservation has posted this article yesterday. Of course Edmund Burke and cardinal Lehmann are not from the same era, this article shows how some prelates are still juring.

Edmund Burke responds to Cardinal Lehmann

The Cardinal complained that some members of the SSPX did not wish to be reconciled to the principles of the French Revolution.

It is now sixteen or seventeen years since I saw the queen of France, then the dauphiness, at Versailles; and surely never lighted on this orb, which she hardly seemed to touch, a more delightful vision. I saw her just above the horizon, decorating and cheering the elevated sphere she had just begun to move in, glittering like the morning star full of life and splendor and joy. 0h, what a revolution! and what a heart must I have, to contemplate without emotion that elevation and that fall! Little did I dream, when she added titles of veneration to those of enthusiastic, distant, respectful love, that she should ever be obliged to carry the sharp antidote against disgrace concealed in that bosom; little did I dream that I should have lived to see such disasters fallen upon her, in a nation of gallant men, in a nation of men of honor, and of cavaliers! I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards, to avenge even a look that threatened her with insult.

But the age of chivalry is gone; that of sophisters, economists, and calculators has succeeded, and the glory of Europe is extinguished forever. Never, never more, shall we behold that generous loyalty to rank and sex, that proud submission, that dignified obedience, that subordination of the heart, which kept alive, even in servitude itself, the spirit of an exalted freedom! The unbought grace of life, the cheap defense of nations, the nurse of manly sentiment and heroic enterprise is gone. It is gone, that sensibility of principle, that chastity of honor, which felt a stain like a wound, which inspired courage whilst it mitigated ferocity, which ennobled whatever it touched, and under which vice itself lost half its evil, by losing all its grossness.

Edmund Burke - 1793

And an account of her execution

But the people took good care that Marie Antoinette should not carry this one drop of comfort to the end of her journey. The populace thronged around the car, howled, groaned, sang ribald songs, clapped their hands, and pointed their fingers in derision at Madame Veto.

The queen, however, remained calm, her gaze wandering coldly over the vast multitude; only once did her eye flash on the route. It was as she passed the Palais Royal, where Philippe Egalite, once the Duke d'Orleans, lived, and read the inscription which he had caused to be placed over the main entrance of the palace.

At noon the car reached its destination. It came to a halt at the foot of the scaffold; Marie Antoinette dismounted, and then walked slowly and with erect head up the steps.

Not once during her dreadful ride had her lips opened, not a complaint had escaped her, not a farewell had she spoken. The only adieu which she had to give on earth was a look--one long, sad look- -directed toward the Tuileries; and as she gazed at the great pile her cheeks grew paler, and a deep sigh escaped from her lips.

Then she placed her head under the guillotine,--a momentary, breathless silence followed.

Samson lifted up the pale head that had once belonged to the Queen of France, and the people greeted the sight with the cry, "Long live the republic!"

That same evening one of the officials of the republic made up an account, now preserved in the Imperial Library of Paris, and which must move even the historian himself to tears. It runs as follows:

"Cost of interments, conducted by Joly, sexton of Madelaine de la Ville l'Eveque, of persons condemned by the Tribunal of the
Committee of Safety, to wit, No. 1 . . . ." Then follow twenty-four
names and numbers, and then "No. 25. Widow Capet:

For the coffin, . . . . . . . . . . . . .6 francs.
For digging the grave,. . . . . . . . . 25 francs."

Beneath are the words, "Seen and approved by me, President of the Revolutionary Tribunal, that Joly, sexton of the Madelaine, receive the sum of two hundred and sixty-four francs from the National Treasury, Paris, llth Brumaire. Year II. of the French Republic.
Herman, President."

The interment of the Queen of France did not cost the republic more than thirty-one francs, or six American dollars.

And this is how they treated her son. So much for the principles of the French Revolution which made the civilised nation of France complicit in vile crimes.

And the Cardinal chooses to forget the death marches of the Vendee.

A Thought on Ted Kennedy

From my other blog Jaconins and Girondins...

Senator Kennedy died today, and already the left is calling for the health care bill to be named after him. This is a left ploy, to drag a poor dead man and gain whatever advantage they can by reciting his name.

My only desire for health care is to have the same plan as he had.


God have Mercy on his soul.

Two articles about the Royal Family of Louis XVI

First Elena-Maria Vidal wrote about Louis XVI and Tuberculosis...

Louis-Auguste, Duc de Berry, the future Louis XVI, was born on August 23, 1754. August 25, the feast of St. Louis of France, was his name-day, and kept with special festivity after he became king in 1774. The other day on Catherine Delors' blog many interesting points were brought up in the comment box about the childhood traumas of Louis-Auguste and how those later affected his reactions to the events of the Revolution. more...

And Catherine Delors tells us about who put the French in French Fries,

Emboldened, Parmentier proceeds to plant potatoes on a plot near the Invalides, but all he gains is the enmity of the landladies, the nuns of a nearby convent, and a dismissal from his position of Apothecary of the Invalides. He is not easily discouraged. He invites the best scientists of the time, such as Laurent Lavoisier and Benjamin Franklin, to dinners where guests are served potatoes. This is, after all, the Enlightenment, and no assumption goes unquestioned.

Official consecration comes at last. In 1785, four years before the Revolution, Louis XVI grants Parmentier two acres at the Sablons, then west of Paris, for him to grow potatoes for human consumption on a trial basis.

In a stroke of genius, Parmentier has the field heavily guarded by soldiers during daytime, and left unattended at night. Of course the neighbors soon surmise this is a particularly valuable crop, and steal plants under the cover of darkness. The following year, Parmentier heads for Versailles to present the King with a bouquet of potato flowers. Marie-Antoinette wears these simple and lovely blossoms on her hat and fine ladies follow suit. Parmentier's allotment at the Sablons is increased to 37 acres, and potatoes are now grown in the King's gardens. in a few years, thanks to Parmentier, the potato has gone from botanical pariah to the height of fashion.

In her books Elena-Maria retells how the King introduced fried potatoes to his dinner table and Madame Royale loved them. All children do...

Thanks and a tip of the beret to both Catherine and Elena-Marie.
