How about they're their own developing persons who, to a certain extent, should have access to their free will and multiple influences?
I am the Grandmother of the ballard high school teen. I am proud of my honor student grand daughter who is the most wonderful child. She has a fantastic relationship with her mother and this has emotionally devistated her. To be instructed by the school and the clinic to keep all of what she went through silent, is unbelieveable to me. It should have been something she could get support with. Not something she felt she had to endure alone. We are a loving family unit, and we care for and support the children in this family. For this instatution to put fear into a child is in my eyes a crime. Her mother would have supported any decision she made. We Love this child unconditionally. She is a very honest and trustworthy girl, and for her, having to keep her mouth shut about it was more that she could take. I feel that even if they offer this to students, it should be something that they share with their familys, not told to keep quiet. Parents should have the right to know what drugs or surguries are being preformed on their children during school hours

So having the child leave school without her parents knowledge or permission, as well as having a medical procedure that could lead to death is no big deal? Seems funny to me that the school would open itself up to that kind of fiscal responsibility. Suppose she was killed in a traffic accident on the way, or died after the murder........who is responsible then?
