Leftists are increasingly trying to find ways to undermine parental authority in any way possible, attempting to fill the gap with big government elitism.
A prime example of this has been exposed in a recent report that details how doctors are now counseling young children, without parental consent, about issues like homosexuality, in an effort to normalize this kind of behavior and educate them on it, whether you want that for your kid or not.
Take the case of a 15-year-old boy from Missouri who was given gender realignment services without his mother’s consent or knowledge. That’s right, despite the fact the kid was a minor, he received care without his parent’s permission.
When the mom took the case to court, they ruled against her. This is the kind of insanity we now face.
Here’s more from LifeSiteNews:
Friends of ours related a chilling incident that happened to their teen son.
Visiting a family physician for a school sports’ physical, the boy was asked by the doctor, “So, are you attracted to girls, to boys, or both?”
Stunned, the boy replied, “To girls,” and later recounted this exchange to his parents.
It’s becoming standard medical practice to approach homosexuality and bisexuality as normal.
And it’s common for adolescent patients to be counseled separately from parents during an office visit so a private conversation can occur about sexual practices, contraception, condoms and other “needs.”
Why this elitist social engineering of other people’s children? Parental control can be a child’s enemy, so the thinking goes, sometimes motivated by ignorance, fear, and repression. Child emancipation/separation tactics are being pushed everywhere in medicine, as they are in public education.
Part of it might have to do with a doctor wanting to support the adolescent’s budding sexuality that the doctor sees as being threatened by parental boundaries. Schools behave this way as well, with numerous incidents recounted of children directed to abortion clinics and pro-homosexual counselors and groups without parental knowledge.
It’s a busybody mentality wedded to the ethic of individual freedom, even for younger children before they reach the natural balance provided by maturity. That maturity also corresponds—or did until recent years—to legal restrictions as well.
Leftists are willing, even eager to smash boundaries, including age of consent laws. They believe they are entitled to advise your children on intimate and life-changing matters without your input.
Once again, this comes down to the fact that progressives want to create a utopian society run by elites who have the power in government and the authority to tell us what is best for us, removing individual autonomy.
Freedom and liberty is viewed as a burden, something that creates the opportunity to make devastating mistakes through the concept of choice.
Unfortunately, the only way to make such a society possible is to destroy the institutions that support it, like traditional marriage, the Christian church, and so on.
This is done in part by getting children to distrust their parents and question their worldview and values, making them believe their parents are wrong, backwards, and outdated.
Children then often abandon their values and embrace the new, godless worldview in order to be relevant, supporting behaviors they once believed were totally wrong.
Slowly over time, the paradigm shifts and it becomes the new normal, regardless of how much damage is done as a result.
This is why parents need to be more proactive these days, making sure to be involved in every area of our children’s lives.
The only way to restore this beautiful republic is by creating future generations of freedom loving young people, which is precisely why leftists are trying to do the opposite. If we aren’t about the work, they will be.
