Parents in New York are finding out the hard way that their parental authority can be trumped anytime if it involves their children twelve or over. That’s right, according to the geniuses that engineered this process, a naïve 12-year old has the maturity to handle medical decisions that could be life or death situations.http://www.onenewsnow.com/latest-headlines-from-the-web/2013/03/12/the-compassionate-folks-at-the-planned-parenthood-office-will-%E2%80%98fix%E2%80%99-her-problem-without-her-parents-ever-knowing
Russell Hepler found out the hard way when his 15-year old son dislocated his finger in a gym accident at school. His son received medical care at a near-by Empire State hospital. The finger was put back into place, but that wasn’t the most painful thing Mr. Hepler had to deal with.
A couple of weeks later, Mr. Hepler’s wife received the bill in their son’s name and there were a couple of errors on the bill involving personal information that she wanted corrected. The health insurance provider informed the Heplers that since their son was over 12-years of age, their son’s medical information was confidential and they couldn’t discuss it with them.
That’s right, the Heplers would have to have their son sign a release form so they could discuss their son’s medical history with them. It’s a shining example of a state over stepping their protection of children in order to provide abortions without the parents knowing about it. Consider this law a residual result gift packaged by the liberals and abortion industry to allow minors to receive medical care without the parents knowing.
Even medical experts agree that New York allowing minors as young as 13-years of age to be competent enough to determine their correct medical treatments leaves much to be desired. It an example of how intrusive and desperate those wanting abortion access to minors to not involve parental authority.
Naturally the idea is to allow abortions to be accessible to even minors without interference from the parents. In the illogical reasoning of pro-abortion forces, playing on the fear of minors not wanting their parents to know provides a perfect backdrop for pressuring young teens to have a serious medical procedure done without the parent’s consent or knowledge. No one needs to know.
Lack of disclosure already is generating a culture of secrecy where horrendous acts of barbaric action are hidden behind the auspices of medical attention. A Pennsylvania “doctor” is under investigation for performing post birth abortions by slicing the necks of surviving babies from botched abortions. The medical oath of many doctors are being stretch to the limit in light of the promise to honor the sanctity of life.http://www.examiner.com/article/brutality-of-abortion-rears-its-ugly-head
What the Heplers and other parents in New York are discovering are the school authorities and New York’s health system are becoming the enemies to the parents who are the last to know concerning medical attention that is now being given to their children without knowledge of the parents. It’s a classic example of social engineers running roughshod over parental authority just to ensure an agenda is upheld. The cost to parents’ peace of mind and the negative impact to their children will far outstrip the benefits of allowing abortion to minors.
Trumping the rights of parents by minors too naïve to make informed decisions is a serious breach of common sense and trust by these pontificators that have little wisdom to the damage being done to the relationships between parents and children. You can guarantee there will be permanent physical damage not limited to accidental sterilization and even death that will take place due to this foolishness sanctioned by these New York individuals that anointed themselves to know more than the parents.
God help us.
