Sounds crazy, right? But it’s not. Many pediatricians have become Progressive activists. How many of you are being groomed by these political agents? Let me describe the grooming process: when your child is about 8 or nine, the pediatrician starts introducing the idea that at some time in the near future, they will want to spend time alone with your child- to get them ready for the time when they first go to a doctor on their own, without their parents. Sounds cozy, huh? A pediatrician that cares so much about your kid that they want to help ease them into their first, adult solo physical checkup.
Then, at around 11 years old, the pediatrician will actually ask the parent to step out of the room ‘for a few minutes’. Then at around 12, the pediatrician will tell you that you must leave the room when the kid is 13 years old. MY pediatrician just blatantly LIED to me and told me that Washington State Law demands that I leave the room.
Now, Parents, I can tell you that I always told my pediatricians, “No. That will not happen with my daughter. I will be here to ensure that she is ok. “ They always were annoyed, but left it be. I have a new pediatrician who just told me that I MUST leave the room when my daughter turns 13- which will happen in August. I was enraged. I told her that this would never happen. Further, I asked her why she & other pediatricians kept demanding this.
She asked, “Don’t you want your daughter to trust her doctor?”
Sputtering, I asked, “What does that have to do with me leaving?”
She said, “Well, this is just what we think is best for kids at this age. She might want to talk to me about things that she can’t talk about in front of you.”
I stated, “Look. She is my responsibility and I don’t ever leave her alone with any adult. Further, how dare you imply that my daughter should trust you more than me?” I said, “The only things you would talk to her, without me being present, are pregnancy, STDs, birth control and abortion.” She just lifted an eyebrow. “These are critical things in my daughter’s life and they belong under my care. Shame on you! Shame on you for attempting to get between my daughter & me.”
She said, “But I always tell the children to bring the adults in on everything. I ensure to include the parents in on as much as possible.”
Flabbergasted, I asked, “Are you saying that if my daughter was pregnant and wanted an abortion- but didn’t want you to tell me, you would tell me anyway?”
She ducked her pretty little head and said, “Well… I would have to respect her privacy rights according to the law, of course.”
I asked, “What law are you referencing, doctor? I know there are laws in some states that allow a 13 year old to seek an abortion without parental consent. But what law are you referencing that would force me out of the room at a pediatrician’s office?”
She said, “I have no idea- you can talk to my office manager. This is just how I want to run my practice. It’s what I believe in.”
I took my kids and left that practice immediately. When I got home, of course I reviewed all relevant current law. I found NOTHING to verify her claims. She LIED to me about the law in her need to get my daughter under her influence.
You know, Parents, my first objection was all about my daughter’s safety. While this particular doctor is female, there are many male pediatricians too. Imagine leaving your precious 13 year old daughter, many of whom are fully developed physically, ALONE with a male doctor. Child predators intentionally take professional positions where they have trusted relationships with children- priests, pastors, coaches, Boy Scout Leaders, teachers, etc. There is no WAY I would leave my girl alone with any adult for this reason. But being politically educated alerted me immediately to what the TRUE intention of this new pediatric protocol. Note that when she attempted to force me from the room, she never stated the reason why. Only when I confronted her on the matter did she admit it.
My daughter told me that her school counselor had a group session (unbeknownst to me) with all the 6th graders last year where she told them that if they needed help for ANY REASON (parental interpretation: considering sex, birth control, suicide, murder, drugs or abortion), they could come to her and she didn’t need to tell their parents.
Parents, BEWARE of pediatricians & school counselors. There is ZERO law that forces you to allow them access to your child. They are aware of some states’ law that allows your child to seek their services without your knowledge. And not only do they go out of their way to tell your 13 year olds this information, but they do it behind your back. If they didn’t go out of their way to tell your kids they could have abortions & birth control at 13 without your knowledge, your kid would never know. They are making YOU into the enemy to be feared. YOU are the one to be distrusted. And THEY are the good guys who will have your kid’s back. But when the inevitable physical & emotional harm is done, they leave you with the pain, sorrow and medical bills. And they leave your kid with nothing.
