Public schools implanting IUDs in sixth-grade girls without parent’s knowledge

What does big government really look like? What does it mean for individuals, families, businesses and churches to give their money to the government so that the government can distribute it as they see fit?

Well, Seattle is one of the most liberal cities in America and they embody the idea of big government. Let’s see how they spend the massive amounts of money they extract from individuals, families, businesses and churches.

Life News reports.

Excerpt:

Earlier this month, LifeNews.com reported on a high school in Seattle, Washington that is now implanting intrauterine devices (IUD), as well as other forms of birth control and doing so without parental knowledge or permission.

The IUD is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may even act as an abortifacient. So, a young teen in Seattle can’t get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception. Or, if she uses another method, she can increase her chances of health risks for herself, especially if using a new method.

The high school, Chief Sealth International, a public school, began offering the devices in 2010, made possible by a Medicaid program known as Take Charge and a non-profit, Neighborcare. Students can receive the device or other method free of cost and without their parent’s insurance. And while it’s lauded that the contraception is confidential, how can it be beneficial for a parent-child relationship when the parents don’t even know the devices or medication their daughter is using?

As it turns out, Chief Sealth isn’t the only school in Seattle doing this. As CNS News reports, more schools are fitting young girls — as young as 6th grade — with the devices and doing so without their parents knowing.

Now how did this happen? Where did the public schools get the authority to have control of these children? And where did the money come from to pay for these schools?

The answer is that the money was taken from individuals, families, businesses and churches and given to the government. And how does a secular government spend this money? Do they spend it the same way that individuals, families, businesses and churches spend this money? No. They spend the money advancing their secular agenda, which, in this case, is to advance feminism and the sexual revolution. They want young girls to be available for sex, because they helps them to be less capable of life-long married love. A woman who has had a large number of break-ups, abortions, etc. at a young age is more likely to look to government, not to a husband, for support.  Undermining her father’s authority in the area of sexuality is exactly what they are trying to achieve. And the father is paying to be undermined with his tax dollars.

    It’s amazing (and sad) how many fathers are clueless about what the education system actually teaches their precious little princess. Even sadder are those who don’t really seem to care.

  2. Purely from a health perspective, young girls do not have the knowledge or maturity to understand the health risks of birth control methods. Thus, any doctor or nurse who provides birth control to a minor without parental consent should be at least sued (if not imprisoned) for providing health care without informed consent.

    Children are incapable of providing informed consent to health care. That is why they have parents to weigh the risks and choose for them. We know this and apply this knowledge in all other areas of health care. Children can’t get an aspirin or tylenol from the school nurse without parental consent. So by what logic should they be able to receive birth control pills that can cause blood clots, stroke, cancer, and other serious health problems or have an IUD implanted that can do all of the above and also cause uterine perforation and infection without parental consent?

    It surely isn’t out of concern for young girls that they are pushing them to make such decisions for themselves when they are not capable of understanding or consenting to the risks. We might just as well ask a 14-year-old to make the decision on whether or not to receive chemotherapy or antibiotics or have a liver transplant.

    The whole reason that we have parents make decisions for their minor children is because children are not yet mature and thus must have someone to make informed decisions for them. If they were capable of evaluating the risks and deciding for themselves, they would be adults. But they are children, so they are under their parents’ care. Parents are the people who are most responsible for the child’s well-being, most familiar with the child’s health and family history, and most interested in doing what is best for the child. Children are placed under parental care for their own protection.

    To allow children to make decisions about birth control without parental knowledge or consent is not only to usurp the parents’ legal responsibility and rights with respect to their child, but to remove protection from that child that they still desperately need and ask them to make a decision that they are not equipped to make.

  3. This seems to be an increasing trend of promiscuity that is developing in the west as it goes down the drain. As well as possibly portending another extreme of frigidity. Neither of which is chastity.

  4. This is why parents should homeschool their kids. So they can actually know what is happening with/to their own kids, and to keep their kids from being indoctrinated with all this BS that’s being pushed onto them.

    Another medical issue with using an IUD is that it is more risky to use one if you’ve never given birth than it is if you have. I don’t recall what the reason behind that is, but I remember someone telling me that her OB-GYN wouldn’t give her one because she had never given birth. (I think it has something to do with how childbirth impacts the cervix, but I won’t swear to that). But anyways, how many 6th graders have already given birth? Not many…
