We are moving away from a society of families. Once there was a time when a child did nothing without the parents getting involved. The Child would be required to address all issues with the parents first; then a decision would be made.
As I reported, schools are telling the children that the parents do not have to be notified. That the parents have no say in what they decide about their bodies. Now this policy has found its fruition.
A mother filed a lawsuit against St. Louis County in Minnesota and other agencies for usurping her parental rights over her 17-year-old child, who she claims has been receiving transgender services and narcotic drugs without her parental consent.
According to the lawsuit, Anmarie Calgaro claims the county and other agencies handled her child as an emancipated minor, although the child has not legally been emancipated.
“Why wasn’t I even notified? I feel that my constitutional rights have been stripped from me,” Calgaro said at a press conference. “If this had been a child custody case, I would’ve had my day in court. I’m firmly committed to what is best for my son. I’m his mother, and he has always been and always will be welcome in our home.”
It seems that this mother had no clue what the school and county health agencies were up to with her son. How can they make these decisions without the mother’s knowledge, not to mention her consent?
We have become as a society that is based not on authority but feelings and whims.
Even if you do not have a problem with the transgendered and sex changes, you should be concerned that a child can be announced as emancipated from their parent without as much as a notification.
I hope she makes the government and schools pay out the nose for this breach of law.
