    I'd appreciate some opinions here, about how this would make you feel, or respond, as a parent.

    My 12 year old brought me home a form tonight for 2 new immunizations. Not required by law, new on the market.

    Here's where my problem lies, in one of the paragraphs on the form:

    "the vast majority of students in grade 7 have the capacity to make informed decisions and give informed consent for vaccination. This is their legal right and as health care providers, we have a legal and ethical responsibility to make sure this happens."

    Pardon fucking me?

    Great. So now we've run out of criminals to make license plates, and test monkeys for new drugs.

    Fuck it, I'm moving to the States.

    :mad: My kids attend the English school, where french is forced upon us until Grade 10.

    What does that have to do with trying to tell a 12 year old he can choose to be a lab rat for drugs at 12, without his mother's consent?

    Yes, yes I did. He took it home while I was gone to jack off to porn, couldn't figure out how to hook it up at his house, then brought it back here and couldn't figure out how to hook it back up again.

    dunno how it is in canada, but in the US, you can't have the nurse give your kid an aspirin without written documentation from you giving them permission for the aspirin.

    now, the abortion pill, that they can take secretly on their own, without your knowledge as a parent...

    a very important part of that letter:

    In the event that a nurse determines a student is not able to understand the information being presented, and therefore is not able to provide informed consent, the nurse will contact the student’s parent or guardian.

    that letter isn't for 1 specific parent, it's most likely made out so children of bible thumping Jehovas etc. who won't allow their child to get any immunizations, to let them know they have the right to it.

    That is just nuts Slippy.

    A 12 year old is capable of making a rational decision about their health care? WTF?
