SCHOOL-BASED HEALTH CLINICS
ARE SPREADING THIS WAY FROM THE LEFT COAST
The website on the conservative view of California politics, www.capitolresource.org, reported that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California has signed a bill that will establish and maintain "health centers" in public schools. Services will include immunizations as well as counseling and "medical services" pertaining to teenage sex, substance abuse, smoking, violence and behavioral problems.
The bill is AB 2560, seen as a serious infringement on parental authority, and no doubt coming this way, and soon.
Basically, "health" clinics in schools are put there so that health-care companies can make money bypassing parental authority, and handing out birth control and antidepressants to kids. Oh, it'll look philanthropic on the surface -- the mantra will be "meeting every young person's health needs regardless of the ability to pay" -- but that just conceals the way parental say-so will be sidestepped, and kids indoctrinated into the idea that the government is the one that can not only meet their needs, but define what those "needs" are -- not their parents and not themselves.
Look for a similar bill to be promulgated in the Unicam next session, and be sure to join the groundswell that pleads for "education, not medication."
