Depending on parents to "protect their children" literally translates: depending on parents to provide their 11 to 13-year-olds with birth control pills.
So King Middle School's opinion is: To the devil with parents like me, who are organic, grain-grinding hippies who spend the extra dollar for the hormone-free chicken and milk. To the devil with a woman's choice to raise her 6th grader in a chaste environment that is birth control free, because as the article states: "Students treated at the centers must first get written parental permission, but under state law such treatment is confidential, and students decide for themselves whether to tell their parents about the services they receive."
11-year-olds deciding huge, life-altering issues for themselves! These kids are still watching Nickelodeon for Pete's sake. They can't get their ears pierced or go to an R-rated movie, but they're getting sex aids at school? Condoms and PHARMACEUTICALS?!? Sure, they're reading all the drug manufacturer info that comes with the packet of pills that their trusted role model hands them; 11-year-olds are really good with medical jargon. ARE THESE ADULTS FLIPPING CRAZY?
I'm telling you, liberal extremists are running the schools anymore, and I'm SO GLAD that I homeschool. It's not enough to depend on educated adults to protect my children, because teachers and school board members have decided that their rights to indoctrinate children trump parental rights. It's baffling.
Girls are maturing earlier (due in part, perhaps, to all the hormones we pump in our food). When an 11-year-old King Middle School student becomes pregnant because she forgot to take a pill or because a school-issued condom broke, just where do you think that 11-year-old is headed?
It's funny how liberals use the case of the very adolescent pregnant person to sell abortion...and yet, they're the ones encouraging the same children to put themselves at risk for pregnancy. Does this sound educated?
You know, people just don't stand a chance when this is the culture. A child whose parents tell her one thing but then ship her off to spend the majority of her time with wolves, is going to learn to follow the pack. Her parents entrusted her to the school and the establishment says "free love/free condoms." (And an establishment that hands out condoms and birth control pills is not above ferrying children to abortion businesses.) Why shouldn't the student trust the school when her parents obviously do?
In case you missed it, this is a liberal machine turning out the worst kind of sausage.
These are YOUR children, parents. YOUR responsibility. Don't forfeit your authority. TAKE CONTROL.
