A Government All Too Willing to Abolish Parental Rights

When Mr. Obama dedicated years to taking over the healthcare of every citizen in the United States, the danger of the government abusing the rights of the citizens came as part of the deal. Parental rights might be first up.

A Michigan mother brought here 17-year old daughter to Sparrow hospital to have her foot checked. Her doctor works in the hospital. The following sign was outside his office:

After the parent Mrs. Christy Duffy saw the sign, she asked “…if this policy was in effect and if so, how could I opt out. The receptionist told me it’s a new law and there is no opting out.”

“Working to keep my cool, I said, ‘I’m sure there is,’” Duffy recounted. “She said, ‘No there isn’t.’ At which point I asked if I needed to leave and go to the urgent care center because I was not submitting my daughter to such a conversation.”

“That did not go over well,” Duffy explained. “The receptionist closed the window … Almost immediately the office manager turned the corner and said, ‘Mrs. Duffy, may I speak with you?’ She said there was a new policy that would allow a child to access his/her medical records online and the child would be allowed to block a parent from viewing the website.”
