The string of abuses laid on citizens of Australia by their government grows almost week by week.
Now, parental rights to raise children, without interference from the State, is under a new form of attack. This must be resisted.
Schools are bringing doctors on board, as a permanent feature. Young children will be subjected to medical diagnoses and treatment, without consent or approval from parents, even if those parents actively object. The State is stealing the role of guardian.
The Herald Sun reports. Read carefully:
“DOCTORS will have the power to treat students as young as 12 in schools even if parents refuse their consent.”
“GPs will consult at 100 Victoria high schools for up to one day a week as part of a $43.8 million program.”
“Guidelines released on Thursday show that even if a parent ‘expressly states’ that a doctor should not [examine] their child, the GP can if they deem the teen mature enough.”
“’Any student who wants to see the GP will be permitted to make an appointment,’ the policy said.”
“The GP will decide if the young person is mature enough to provide consent to any medical treatment for the prevailing issue.”
A young child “giving consent?” This is supposed to be “informed consent” when facing off with an adult doctor?
