School provides secret abortions for students; Parents Livid
[link to www.stuff.co.nz]

Schools are helping teenage girls keep abortions secret from their parents. Imogen Neale reports.

A MOTHER is angry her 16-year-old daughter had a secret abortion arranged by a school counsellor.

Helen, not her real name, found out about the termination four days after it had happened. "I was horrified. Horrified that she'd had to go through that on her own, and horrified her friends and counsellors had felt that she shouldn't talk to us," she said.

She had suspected something was wrong, but her daughter insisted her tears were over everyday teenage dramas.

But Helen confronted her daughter's friends, who said the counsellor had taken the girl for a scan and to doctors. "I didn't know that they could do that."

Helen said teachers could discuss how a student was doing in school or phone parents when their child misbehaved, but would then keep life-changing situations such as abortions secret.

Wow... talk about overstepping boundaries.

I just hope this doesn't dissolve into a choice/life debate and stays focused on the topic.

EDIT:

With the number of online highschool that are available now, more people should consider this option. There are a dozen or so that are free of charge to in state residents and others that are private online schools that will work out for any state. No way will I let my child go to public school.

For parents that say "I don't have time, or I don't know how to home school", online school is the answer. The curriculum is all there. Your kid just does not go to a school across town to be exposed to who knows what, with who knows what kept secret from you!

The school can't give a tylenol without written consent by a parent, but they can haul your child down for a surgical procedure?????????????

And if the child bleeds to death that night due to complications, they still think the parent has no right to know???????????????????????????

Let's forget the pro-life/pro-choice issue for a minute.

What the fuck ever happened to parental rights?!? This is a situation where a child is undergoing a medical procedure without parental consent, aided by a SCHOOL.

I get that girls who are underage should be able to aquire birth control and get some education on STDs and reproductive health from a place like Planned Parenthood. Preventing unwanted teen pregnancies will prevent underage abortions.

But is it right for a child to undergo a medical procedure without their parents even knowing about it?

In my state, minors under the age of 18 can't get a tattoo or piercing without a notarized affidavit from their parent or legal guardian.
But an abortion is fine, right?

They've been doing this a long time. I remember a girl some 20 years ago in a class. She was kinda a fat girl and most couldn't tell she was prego. Then one day in class she came in and the teacher was nervous/flustered and said the girl had just "had a 4 lb cyst removed". Didn't hit me until recently, she probably had an abortion.

Just read the patient teaching sheet for after care after an abortion. Look at the huge list of dangerous complications that the patient should be monitored for. Now, if the teenager is too scared to tell the parent about being pregnant, will they tell the parent when one of these major complications occur? NO!

ITS STILL UNBELIEVABLE, WHETHER ITS NZ OR HERE

CAN YOU IMAGINE A SCHOOL NURSE DRIVING YOUR SON TO HAVE A TOOTH EXTRACTED, CAPPED OR FILLED WITHOUT INFORMING YOU?

ORAL SURGERY?

WHAT IF THERE ARE COMPLICATIONS FROM THE ANESTHESIA? OR A DRUG REACTION? PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN DENTAL CHAIRS BEFORE, CARDIAC ARREST OR REACTIONS TO INJECTIONS

ANY MEDICAL PROCEDURE PERFORMED ON A MINOR UNDER 18 SHOULD BE WITH THE FULL UNDERSTANDING AND PERMISSION OF A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN. THAT INCLUDES A COSMETIC PROCEDURE TOO

And you have the Courts to thank for it

The School Nurse can't give your child an aspirin without your consent, but a handful of " Liberal Activist Judges" ruled that the right to an abortion outweighs parental rights.

So schools are allowed to take your child to an abortion clinic , get the abortion and NEVER tell you about it.

Thank you for posting that link.

That is an example of one state, but many do not need any consent.

Re: School provides secret abortions for students; Parents Livid
I just wonder if something went wrong at the clinic and the little girl was injured, would the school have told the parents she "fell off the monkey bars"? Keeping this a secret from the parents is an admission that they know this is WRONG!

This world is so MESSED UP!
