Schools arrange secret abortions

Filed under: Sex Abuse / CYF — Jono @ 6:55 am

This could be deemed not post worthy but anyways….

With the increase of Child Abuse being thrown out to the general public, I find it interesting how professionals can justify not telling the parents if there daughter has had an abortion. I then question if the boy who did it (if known) is also covered from his parents not knowing. New Zealand at least, in abortions the male has no say what-so-ever even if he wants the child or not. (Some) Females have been using that blackmail for donkey years (that in itself is abuse personally).

Personally, I have a daughter myself and the fact something like this is going to be hidden from me starts to question what else “im not going to be told” because im a male or parent as a whole.

This stuff story didn’t cover how the father felt about it. Dont we have a right to a say as well? Dont as parents have a right to know what is going on in our kids lives?

Dont these professionals understand that the parents would find out in the end? This isnt something you can put a “sticking plaster” on in the hope it goes away, its there for life. Personally, I would support my daughter (should that happen) cause at the end of the day, this is a traumatic experience for her. I would also support my son (if I had one). Wouldn’t it be beneficial that both family’s come together for a chat before they consider prosecutions for statutory rape.

    I remember a number of months back, there was a news show (20/20 or something like that). My childs doctor was making a statement on National Television that this goes on. He didnt seem to worried about it either.

    Funny,but not really related:I recently saw a book called “Eating is a Women’s Problem” Seriously.

    This debate will probably always lead to confusion. But it is still somewhat wrong that a male, parent, teacher or even other friends (male or female, it makes no difference) are not told. It makes no sense that young women don’t need to tell someone.

    Abortion may or may not be the problem (I am uncertain whether it is or not,too) but one real problem is the way it is handled.

    Any thoughts?
