Posted on 09/20/2010 6:45:30 AM PDT by kristinn
At the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee hearing last Thursday, Democrats passed a bill to require federal health officials to question anyone seeking services from Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) community health centers or other programs about their sexual orientation and gender identity.
Introduced by Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), H.R. 6109 requires HHS to obtain, retain and analyze sexual identity information from patients who seek healthcare, including children.
This bill is about collecting data, no more, no less, Baldwin said.
According to Baldwin, the current lack of cultural competency among federal officials means that we are left with gaping holes in our knowledge on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered) policy resulting in significant health disparities.
Baldwin is the first openly-declared lesbian elected to Congress.
The new bills requirements would apply to all HHS health service programs, requiring the health service employees to ask everyone receiving services their sexual orientation and gender identity -- including those that focus on children at school-based health centers. Children who seek help at government-funded school health clinics would be asked whether or not they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or if they know their gender identity.

your very far far right opinions
We are far right opinion holders; not reasonable middle of the road RINOs.
The liberal elites would have us in The Brave New World instead of boys/girls having cooties.
Half of what we post back and forth you misinterpret or out and out don't follow.
I hope you have a great kids who are happy and strong. I do, and thats all any of us really want.
Not rude. Just making an observation.
Only someone brainwashed by the system could defend putting your children in those sorry excuses for schools.
FR is a far far right forum. This is NOT a Republican forum. It is a CONSERVATIVE forum. Actually it's a grassroots activist conservative website.
So unless you are far far right, you're on the wrong forum.
Please explain how I misinterpret or do not follow.
I have been taking your comments piece by piece and replying.
And you never reply to any of my comments in kind.
Just blanket statements about “paranoia” and “far far right” opinions.
You never materially proved any point wrong that anyone has made. Just shapeless accusations. I think you’re out of your depth on this thread, because you cannot debate and prove that six year old or even older children will not be tainted and badly influenced by this kind of perverted leftist crap.
A very telling comment.
RINO’s just can’t help but slip.
Besides, I still have yet to see fml condemn the measure. Her solution is just to do damage control once the kids have had to deal with it.
That’s real effective in *fixing* the system.
Kids across the country would do better if the entire education system were abolished. They wouldn’t be any less educated than they are now and they wouldn’t be being indoctrinated eight hours a day, five days a week for the parents to undo in the few hours they spend at home.
Whats seen cant be unseen. The best any parent is going to be able to do with the public education system is damage control.
Absolutely true. That's why traditionally parents have always been careful about who their children associate, what they watch and see, read and hear. Filth affects them deeply.
You're wrong. Being defensive seemed more important to a few of you than reading what I posted. Correction, first you took the offense, then defense.
Lets just understand you all can complain from the outside looking in to your hearts content.
I, and millions others try to fix the system from within. The insults, silly trash talking about the kids who did succeed and the parents who take a very active role in that success is just foolish. What do you really accomplish?
Yes, she never said it was a bad law. Just that I was “paranoid” and “it would never happen”.
I think that the federal government should get out of the education business. It should be handed back to states and from there counties. That way the locals and parents control their schools. There’s a lot of rollback from DC that should be going on.
She's not. You didn't condemn it on the other thread either.
I will restate that. Your loudest condemnation was that anyone was “afraid of the school system using such garbage”.
I am not against homeschooling. That said I also think to run is to give in. Parents need to empower their children to say no, walk out Al Gore movies, leave blanks where necessay on questionairs, decline sex-ed etc... When the majority fail to participate the experiment will fail
Followed up because someone had trouble understanding:
I expect parents to remove children from the situation. Been there, done that. By example they will learn and have the strength to do it too.
If you find anything in those two posts somehow defending the law you're nuts. I worked within the system on a personal level how it effected my children with the aid of like minds. I attacked nobody and only questioned how leaving will cause any solutions on the personal level with the system
And yes, I doubt this will pass also posted earlier.
And DeMint said that as well. He particularly mentioned the Education Dept.
DeMint Promotes Redistributing Power to States (DeMint would dismantle many federal departments)
Are you dishonest or just guessing?
Where is the other thread? I didn’t know there was another one about this inane garbage,
To fix it the government schools they would need to become completely private.
The very definition of government school **is** socialist-funded, compulsory, government owned and run, price-fixed monopoly cartel, and godless.
If they were to “fix” all that then they would need to become non-socialist, non-compulsory, non-government owned and run, not a price-fixed monopoly cartel, and God-centered. That **is** the definition of a **private** school!
I don't see a lot of control of states in that.
