Friends, I want to follow up on the story I wrote about a month ago about the problem I had with my pediatrician. To recap: Pediatricians begin grooming parents & kids at about 9 years old to leave the children alone with the doctor for a ‘few minutes’. Their ultimate goal is to get the parent completely out of the room for the entire exam by the time the child turns 13. At this point, they ask questions & give information to your children 100% behind your back and without your knowledge. And what kind of information do they give? Pediatricians have become political activists. They believe it is THEIR responsibility to INFORM your 12 or 13 year old that they have a legal right to obtain ANY kind of abortion (mid/late/partial- you name it) without needing to tell their parents. They also tell your kid that they can, at any time, obtain birth control & anti depressants without needing to tell their parents. They reassure them that if they do get a sexually transmitted disease, they can obtain treatment without needing to tell their parents.
My 13 year old can’t get an antibiotic to treat a urinary tract infection without my permission- but she CAN have a baby pulled out of her body, limb by limb, in a gruesome two day process! When I point this out to pediatricians, they acknowledge the ‘awkwardness’ of the double standard but will defend their ‘standard of pediatric care’ to the n’th degree.
When I point out that THEY will never have to deal with the repercussions of their actions (pre-teen sex, teen pregnancy & emotional trauma of abortion), they just shrug. When I point out that it will be ME and my husband who will have to pick up the financial & emotional toll for the rest of my daughter’s life, they look at me like I have three heads.
Lastly, there are so many cases of pediatricians sexually molesting children after their parents leave the room that it is ridiculous. I won’t even allow my children to spend the night at people’s houses! But they want me to trust a complete stranger with my daughters’ (and son’s) naked bodies. Wow.
My standard statement since this coercion began years ago was a polite, yet firm, statement saying that I would be remaining in the room. They never liked it, but they respected my wish. Last month, our pediatrician went too far. Because my daughter was 13, she insisted I leave the room. When I told her, ‘No,”, she lied to me and told me that Washington State law required that I leave. Of course, I knew this to be a complete falsehood and left the office immediately. But not without reporting the incident. I have been following up on the incident and have encountered an establishment in tacit support of the doctor. They have made every attempt to dishearten and ignore me. But there is too much proof against the doctor and they know it. We will see.
But what I would like to tell you today is how the NEXT pediatrician handled my determination to remain in the room. Of course, she was ‘shocked’. Really, friends, she and every pediatrician thus far are SHOCKED that I won’t do what they tell me to do. They are accustomed to having sheeple worship them as demi-gods. They truly don’t know what to do when a parent refuses their off handed orders. She continued to ‘educate’ me on how most parents are thrilled to have a medical professional for their teens. Someone ‘trustworthy’ for their teens to talk to about things they can’t talk to their parents about. (What??) Friends, are you getting the drift? The parents are happy to give up their responsibilities on sex education of their children. But how many of them know what they are giving up? The pediatrician will NOT TELL the parent what they are about to discuss. It is completely hidden from them. Unless the parent specifically requires the doctor to describe EVERY question or statement they are about to ask their kid, the parent is purposely kept in the dark. I have a feeling that the vast majority of parents would object if they knew what was going on behind those doors!
In any case, this pediatrician attempted the same shaming, peer pressure & coercion tactics as all the others, but gave in when she saw my determination.
So, what did she ask my daughter? Get this, she actually asked my daughter the following questions:
“Do you ‘get along’ with your parents?”
“Do you ‘get along’ with your siblings?”
“Is anyone at school taking drugs or using alcohol? Are you?”
“Are you sexually active?”
“Is anyone (note: this could also be parents or siblings) pressuring you to have sex with them?”
Friends, these are the questions the doctor felt comfortable asking in my presence! What would she ask/tell without my presence?? She is looking for rape, beatings & home drug use. She is looking to peg the parents for wrong doing. No wonder they want us out of the room!
Are pediatricians now licensed psychiatrists? Did my daughter seek psychiatric help? Is the pediatrician a social worker? Did my daughter report a rape at school? Did my daughter report incest at home? Did my daughter seek legal advice? Are pediatricians now lawyers who inform their clients about their legal rights? Will they also inform them of their Miranda rights, their Bill of Rights? Or just their abortion & birth control rights???
Here I thought a doctor’s job was to stitch up cuts, analyze illness and prescribe medicines. Little did I know that they were also lawyers, psychiatrists, counselors and social workers! Little did I know that they go around DIGGING for problems that have never been reported or even suspected!
Who the hell do these doctors think they are?
Just imagine if your teen was angry at you or their father. What if they say something just to spite their parents? I can just see the doctor phoning Child Protective Services. What then? A twelve year old is a CHILD with a child’s mentality & knowledge. They would have no idea what such lies could lead to.
Friends, pediatricians are determined to make the parents the enemy. And themselves (and the State) the truly trustworthy ones. Beware, my Friends. DO NOT leave your children alone with these people. There is no legal pressure to do so. These people have an agenda and they will attempt to pressure you into it. Don’t let them. And at the same time, TEACH your kids, from an early age, that YOU can be trusted to help them in all things. YOU be the ones to teach them about sex, marriage, pregnancy, birth control & love. Otherwise, you will let the devil come between you and your beloved child. It’s not worth the easy out.
