A Trend to Undermine Parental Authority Seen in California
Since when are California middle schoolers (ages 11-13)
presumed to need the services of Planned Parenthood,
with their ID card a form of advertising for its services?
The latest bill before the California legislature requires that middle school student ID cards have printed on the back the phone numbers for 1) the National Sexual Assault Hotline and 2) a reproductive health hotline (code for Planned Parenthood).
So here are the glaring questions: Why would you spur any student to avoid going directly to her parents or her own doctor in a case where she's been sexually assaulted? Doesn't such a move encourage this?
Also, since when are middle schoolers presumed to need the services of Planned Parenthood, with their ID card a form of advertising for its services? Much of the sexual activity in this age group is perpetrated by adults against minors - parents have every right to know if there's been a case of statutory rape, a criminal offence!
Most concerning is that the bill would require an abortionist's phone number on student ID cards at every junior high, high school, and college campus in California, including Christian- and Catholic-format schools and universities. (forget separation of church and state!)
Do you see the modern day pattern evolving? Increasingly your relationship with your children is being usurped by total strangers who "know what's best", especially in the sexual arena, and in complete defiance of the Bible's clear command that the parents play the primary role with their children. It may be the case that a girl's father learns of her trauma, then HE calls the Sexual Assault Hotline. So be it - he is clearly "being there" for his daughter!
After all, a child cannot even get a Tylenol at school without parental permission, so let's give the phone number to him! But it's a fact that with abortion, we have another story entirely! It is already legal for any school personnel to transport a young girl of 15 off-campus for an abortion without parental knowledge or consent. A young girl has even died from a recent abortion when she started haemorrhaging at home - her out-of-the-loop parents did not believe it was serious.
As of 2019, California school personnel can take you off-campus in the same manner, to facilitate your sex change as young as age 12, no questions asked! (except "Do you FEEL like a boy/girl" today?) A sex change renders you sterile for life - so is age 12 the right time for this?
These changes in the legislature are not only ANTI-reproduction, they actively work to dismantle family structures that already exist. So parents must constantly work to ensure they have a relationship with their children, middle school and all the way up, that is based on open communication and mutual respect. Even if they lower the age of consent, which is coming soon.
There is no other way to maintain the integrity of the family, except doing it ourselves, one family at a time. It starts with the husband and wife, and puts a high priority on the parent-child bond, and then on to the next generations. Add the support of a like-minded community, and there you have it!
