Parents are the Enemy

What kind of cannibalistic society assumes the worst of it’s parents?  Or the flipside of the same coin, what society is so selfishly absorbed in personal “rights” for children that the purpose of those rights are lost?

It’s a topic I see surfacing again and again, and it’ s not just California.  Planned Parenthood has it’s fingers in many pots in their attempts to liberate children from the care of their parents.

CRI: Parents are the Enemy According to Some School Districts

The school board in Modesto City School District voted 4-3 to exclude parents from knowing when their children leave class for confidential medical services, in a meeting last night.

Modesto parents still have time to protect their rights, however, because the board members will cast a new vote on July 13.

“Only four people — three from Planned Parenthood, plus one activist– testified in favor of excluding parents. Every single additional testimony asked the board to include parents,” said Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute.

She drove to Modesto and testified with parents, at the request of citizens in Modesto.

The discussion was over proposed Board Policy 5113, which pertains to confidential medical appointments for students as young as 12 years of age.

The associate superintendents who proposed this policy claimed that it would “meet a mandate for such policy and regulation.” BP 5113’s actual language was written by the California School Boards Association, which advises many districts on their school board policies.

In reality, there is no mandate.

State law says that “school authorities MAY excuse any pupil” (Cal. Educ.C. 46010.1, emphasis added). England pointed this out during the meeting. The law provides permission for implementing confidential release, but it certainly does not impose a mandate.

There are over 900 public school districts in California and many do not offer their students confidential medical release. Modesto’s current policy is parent- friendly.

Unfortunately, Modesto has sided with Planned Parenthood for now, against parents.

This vote was only the first reading, however, and the board’s final vote will be at its second reading during the next meeting. CRI is hopeful that one or two board members can be persuaded to vote for parental knowledge of what happens to their children at school.

Modesto parents and pastors left the meeting fired up. They are ready to tell their communities what is going on — so that more families can get involved, because people are still unaware.

Here are four ways to take action and defend parents’ rights in Modesto: Contact the board members, contact the media, educate your friends, and show up at the next board meeting.

Contact every board member, so they can go to the final vote saying that the community has spoken. Urge them to enact a parent-friendly policy. Tell them to include parents, not exclude parents. It is possible to sway some votes and protect families in Modesto.
