When I went to the pediatrician’s office with my daughter for one of our grandchildren’s check-ups, I could not believe the intrusive, outrageous questions they asked!

To top it all, apparently doctors now have to look at a child’s genitals at every visit for signs of abuse. Just as parents are telling their kids to cover up and not let strangers into their pants, now the poor docs have to at least take a quick look. I’m sure little girls are not happy about it.

Why don’t doctors rebel and tell the gov’t to get lost? I can’t believe this is the USA.

Could you mention some of the questions they asked you?

Also, inspecting the kids’ privates is outrageous.

Part of every physical is to do an appropriate bit of observation.... not for signs of abuse but for signs that the child is growing in a healthy manner. I can remember being examined (visually) by my pediatrician and that was a hell of a long time ago. My mother was always in the same room. This was true for my child as well. Unless your doc specifically said he was looking for signs of abuse I would not be so quick to make that conclusion. If he did say that I would find a new doc

Our pediatrician takes about 1.5 seconds to look "under the underwear" of my daughters, and this only after asking them if it's okay to look. I don't think it's about checking for abuse as much as ascertaining the onset/level of pubescence. And I'm right there beside them, so I have no qualms. If something beyond this is going on, you should ask the pediatricians about the purpose of the exam. It can always be refused.

The feral government is the source of many, many medical pay checks.

*******
The sheeple are docile and unwilling to challenge authority, even in the face of losing their privacy, freedom and rights. We are truely the proverbial frog being slowly boiled in water.

Nothing is going to change until there is some type of cataclysmic event that reorients everyone’s thinking. It will be the psychological equivalent of a “life altering event”, only on a national level. Most likely a massive economic crisis (brought about by out of control spending) that forces people to realize the extent of government overreach. Obamacare might just be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

Good luck to all of us.

It can’t continue. We’ll have to do something.

Mass in the streets in tens of millions?

Something.

I was only following orders.

Did anyone ever doubt where this was going after Roe?

That ain’t normal, find a new doc and make a report to the licensing board about a potential pervert. Every report does NOT require looking at the kid’s genitals.

I’m sure the pedophile doctors all just love that. What about the child’s right to privacy?
