Mother furious after in-school clinic sets up teen's abortion
KOMO ^ | Mar 23, 2010 | Komo staff

Posted on 03/23/2010 6:43:31 PM PDT by GSP.FAN

SEATTLE -- The mother of a Ballard High School student is fuming after the health center on campus helped facilitate her daughter's abortion during school hours.

The mother, whom KOMO News has chosen to identify only as "Jill," says the clinic kept the information "confidential."

This is all schools. They promote sex to the kids and this is the result.

Not a shock, anywhere in America

And if she needed nose spray or a cough drop, the mother would have had to bring them in and sign a form giving permission for the NURSE to dispense them. No joke.

They do that in my part of the state and the “health center” had better be armor-plated.

The Marxists consider the teen smart enough to safely manage all the possible complications of an invasive operation, but the mom is too dumb to wisely use a voucher. Go figure!

And of course the taxpayers fund that to boot.

Parents should wake-up, but some are in the ‘American Idol’ mood; I know, I talk to my son in law to no avail, I just feel really bad for my grand kids.

T.J. Cosgrove of the King County Health Department, who administers the school-based programs for the health department, says it's always best if parents are involved in their children's health care, but don't always have a say.

"At any age in the state of Washington, an individual can consent to a termination of pregnancy," he said.

For the last few years we have tried to repeal the law that 13 yr old kids can go to the teacher if she is pregnant and get a abortion with out telling the parents...
It has always failed cause the libs use the argument we are trying to ban abortion,maybe if they read this a change may come about....

Article is taken from a DU post which are shocked that it is OK..............

Two questions:

1. who paid for the killing?

2. Do the parents have any legal recourse?

A student has to have a permission by parents/guardian to leave campus so how did this child leave school without consent?

I do not understand how preforming a surgical procedure on minor is okay without parental consent....wow

I am a school nurse and this disgusts me. This nurse should be fired and loose her license.....

what will?

doing nothing?

the girl and her family will suffer depression and possibly PTSD, if now now, in years ahead. the school administrators should pay for the therapy.

I busted an arm in high school and had to wait hours prior to getting it treated...as they had to track down one of my parents and get permission (pre cell phone days). If only I had been pregnant...LOL.

This story was covered on the John Carslon radio show in Seattle today. One of his staffers spoke at length with the mother of the student. Both the student and her boyfriend have become so distraught that they had to be hospitalized. The student had repeated panic attacks. No details on the boyfriend.

The student was 15 when the abortion was performed in December. The parents didn't find out until months later. The a-holes at the clinic told the student not to tell her parents, but she eventually did.

This is what Hillary's Village looks like.

Its an outrageous perversion of values. The same school officials would be required to report to social services if your child had a “suspicious” injury and subject the parent(s)to invasive inquiry.

But secret murder at the state’s behest is somehow in society’s best interest.

No, it's not everywhere! Not all schools promote sex! You can't make a blanket statement—it's simply not true.

I think it is criminal that a school would do what they did in this Ballard case. I'm not condoning their actions in any way!

I am just so tired of all the school bashing here at FR. There are plenty of great schools in this country as well as great teachers.

Apparently this parent does not understand — children are property of the State. Birth policy is regulated by the State. The parental unit has only so much right to determine the activities or restriction thereon as the Federal authorities permit. Get used to it people. Obama hath spoken — much like the demagogues who preceded him.

It's a miracle the kid didn't off herself from holding that anguish and regret inside for months.

I hope she sues the district and owns them.

Yeah, I know, the public school defenders will try to discourage it claiming it’s taxpayer money.

They shouldn’t have used taxpayer money to provide an abortion, a serious medical procedure, to her daughter in the first place.

I wonder what "provisions" under the new Hellth Care laws there are for school children getting abortions. I'm sure it's addressed in there somewhere.

This is true.

Someone needs to help the mother pro bono. The daughter could not be given a Tylenol without the mother’s permission to the school. I will assume that during the abortion she received something far more potent than Tylenol. The school cannot abrogate its responsibility simply by passing it to a third party, in this case an abortion clinic.

Somehow this seems a setup for application of the Equal Protection clause in federal court.

And then there’s Darwinism and PC-isms taught in every subject. I know, I’ve read enough school text books to know they’re utterly larded with toxic lies.

“Ahmed and Manuel need to buy curtains for their apartment. If they have 4 windows each 3 by 4 feet and 2 windows 2 by 4 feet, how much lavender lace fabric will they need?”

Seriously - a few years ago I read one just like that in a grade school math book, only part I am making up is the lavender fabric.

And then the Social Studies book describing “families” - they had an “old fashioned” family with mom, dad and two kids that I am not kidding were doctored to look like the Adams family, and the cute and smart looking single mother bringing her illegitimate kid to day care.

Every subject is propaganda.

The ninth grade public school math text I had a chance to read through only a few years back, in the first chapter taught the kids how to make their numbers in sign language.

In 9TH grade.

And ALL the pictures were of racially and gender balanced smiling kids doing mindless activities like using tangrams.

The only white males in the pictures were either in the background or wheelchairs.

Hey, but let them see something that makes them think you laid a hand on your child and see how fast DSS is at your door, yanking your kids and labeling you as a child abuser.

Imagine the fallout if some neighbor took the kid for the abortion without the parent’s consent.

That’s so sad. Prayers for this young girl, especially that she can somehow move on past the guilt that she probably has. I hope that other around her let her know how much they love her. I would be afraid of a suicide attempt by her.
